POMONA, Calif. (AP) — Ron Capps and Leah Pruett gave Don Schumacher Racing a nitro sweep Sunday in the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway.
Capps topped the Funny Car field and Pruett won in Top Fuel for their first victories of the season.
Capps raced to his 67th overall victory to take the season points lead, beating J.R. Todd in the final with a 4.151-second run at 297.75 mph in a Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
“I was hoping a win was coming,” Capps said. “This team, time and time again, they’ve given me one of the coolest cars to drive and this (weekend) was one of the most extreme conditions we’ve ever had. To do it at Pomona in the summer, with all my friends and family here, I can’t even tell you how amazing it is.”
