Ronn Capps to Run Vintage Funny Car


Ron Capps, driver of Don Schumacher's Brut Dodge Stratus Funny Car, will race Jeff Gaynor's '70 Barracuda flopper at the Goodguys VRA race in Pomona. Coming right off the Western Swing of the NHRA's POWERade tour, Capps heads to Pomona August 5-7. The car's regular throttle jockey, Jeff Utterback, will be driving Gary Turner's car instead. While not as fast as today's Funnies, the '70s cars look infinitely cooler, and are generally more unpredictable. Plus, you know, they resemble actual cars, instead of like, the Space Shuttle or something...
