Ron Capps Powerade Funny Car Series

by The Editors on August 29, 2007


In the 2007 NHRA POWERade Drag Racing Series Funny Car points standings Carlsbad’s Ron Capps is on top, but apparently all that goes away as the season winds down to the Countdown to Four this weekend at the Mac Tools US Nationals at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis, Indiana. The good news is he has a secret weapon.

That’s crew chief Ed McCulloch, who has won more U.S. Nationals Funny Car titles than any other driver. McCulloch had claimed five Funny Car victories (1971, ’72, ’80, ’88, ’90) and one Top Fuel win (1992) at this prestigious event before he retired as a driver at the end of 1993. Both Capps and McCulloch have competed in seven Showdown bonus events. This weekend will mark Capps’ eighth appearance in the Showdown.

To keep up with Ron check out his blog at Brut Racing, or watch the U.S. Nationals on ESPN 2 on Sunday August 2, at 8:30 AM Carlsbadistan time.
