2017-10-15 Final Round Winner Robert Hight captured the Funny Car victory Sunday at the 32nd annual AAA Texas NHRA Fall Nationals at the Texas Motorplex.

Hight remains second in the points standings with Capps in first by just 24 points.“This was huge. A round win is worth 20 points but truthfully that final round win for us was 40 points,” said Hight, who was also the No. 1 qualifier at the event. “We were 44 back going into the final round and had we lost that’s 64. Winning brought it back to 24 which is a little over a round with two races left. That was a 40-point swing for us. That was big. We needed that one. We would have been pretty bummed leaving here over three rounds back.”
