Ron Capps carries No. 1 on the side of his NAPA AUTO PARTS Dodge Charger R/T this year after his team led by crew chief Rahn Tobler and assistant Eric Lane helped him win his first Funny Car world championship after being a runner-up for an NHRA record four times.
The native Californian, who lives near San Diego with his wife, Shelley and two children, had a stellar 2016 with career bests of seven event titles, 10 final rounds, five poles and 54 winning rounds of eliminations in 24 events.
Capps, 51, in his 10th season with NAPA and 13th with Don Schumacher Racing ranks second in Funny Car wins with 49 and totals 50 in nitro categories including his first driving a Top Fuel dragster in 1995 as a rookie.
