RON CAPPS, DODGE WIN TO MOVE DRIVER TO NO. 2 ON ALL-TIME NHRA FUNNY CAR VICTORY LIST
Ron Capps raced to his second Funny Car victory of the season Sunday at the O'Reilly Auto Parts NHRA SpringNationals presented by Super Start Batteries.
Doug Kalitta (Top Fuel) and Erica Enders-Stevens (Pro Stock) also were winners at the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series event at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston.
Capps powered past teammate Jack Beckman in the final round to earn his 44th career Funny Car victory and move into second behind John Force on NHRA's all-time wins list in that category. Capps finished in 4.244 seconds at 258.32 mph in his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger, while event top qualifier Beckman trailed with a 4.480 at 205.16 in his Infinite Hero Foundation Charger.
"It's crazy to think that I am No. 2 on that list," Capps said. "I am not that good, so it just shows you from my time with (team owner) Don Prudhomme on down to my team at Don Schumacher Racing, all of the great people I have worked with over the years, it's a credit to them." Read Full Article
