Ron Capps' Charger

Ron Capps Dodge Charger runs a record 3.964 at 320.89mph

Tonight marked the first two rounds of qualifying for the Toyota NHRA SuperNationals in Englishtown New Jersey and while Toyota may be the title sponsor – it was the NAPA Dodge Charger funny car driven by Ron Capps who made the most noise as he turned a record elapsed time of 3.964 seconds on the 1,000 foot long track.

Englishtown Raceway in New Jersey is known for being one of the fastest tracks on the NHRA schedule and with cool temperatures Friday night, the NHRA field was primed to turn in some amazing times with Team Mopar driver Ron Capps making sure that the Funny Car class didn’t disappoint. By the end of tonight’s racing, Capps and Top Fuel driver Spencer Massey both set new records for the fastest lap times in their respective classes.
