Ron Capps raced his NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger R/T to his 3rd consecutive Funny Car victory this season Sun. at the 37th annual Lucas Oil NHRA Southern Nationals at Atlanta Dragway.

Defending world champion Ron Capps ran 3.991 sec. at 317.79 mph and defeated Tim Wilkerson in his Ford Shelby Mustang. This is Capps 2nd victory at Atlanta Dragway and his 52nd Top Fuel career win.

Capps said, “It‘s a pinch me moment, The car speaks for itself lately. This was probably one of the more up and down run tracks 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 was just getting tougher and tougher.”

Capps out ran J.R. Todd, 16-time world champion John Force and Robert Hight, with the track elapsed time record with his 3.880 pass in the semifinals.
