Ron Capps

Defending world champion Capps raced a 3.991-second pass at 317.79 mph to defeat Tim Wilkerson in his Levi, Ray & Shoup Ford Shelby Mustang. This is Capps’ second victory at Atlanta Dragway and 52nd of his Funny Car career.“It’s a pinch-me moment,” Capps stated. “The car speaks for itself lately. This was probably one of the more difficult racetracks to navigate. You really had to be ready for two or three different sets of bumps. It makes for an exciting run, but you’re just hoping, at the same time, that your car stays in the groove. Funny Car is just getting tougher and tougher.” READ FULL STORY
