Ron Won 75th Career Win At BIR

Ron is known as The King of the Zoo at Brainerd International Raceway

He won his 75th race in the Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals by beating Robert High in the Funny Car finals

Ron has won seven times at this track, making him second in all-time wins. 

He is behind John Force, who has won 11 times. Ron enjoys this place a lot, and he celebrates there. 

His assistant crew chief, Tom Buckingham, is from the area, and his wife is from Minnesota

Ron and his family celebrated their victories at Zoo. 

He tried a milestone of 75th career wins, similar to one of his role model, Pat Austin

Ron entered the Sunday Race as the top qualifier and continued to do well in each round, leading to his victory. 

Ron talked about how well Bob Tasca’s team did in a race. 

John Force raced against Robert Hight, but John's tire spun, giving Hight an easy win. 

Hight was celebrating his birthday and hoped for a win, but Ron narrowly beat him in the finals. 

Hight’s time was slightly slower than Ron’s, and Ron was quicker at starting the race. Ron felt pressure but was relieved when he won. 

In the earlier rounds, there were surprising wins by Dave Richards and Dale Creasy Jr. against top racers like Matt Hagan and JR Todd

Ron was behind Matt in the championship points, but with his win and Matt’s loss, Ron became the new leader. 

He's a two-times world champion and aims to do well in upcoming races. 

Ron is excited to go to Indianapolis as the defending champion there.

Ron's Impressive Performance Even After Losing

Tony Stewart won during the SRX event at Eldora Speedway, but one of the most impressive performances came from Ron, a three-time NHRA Funny Car champion

Although he practiced on a computer simulator, this was his first dirt race since 2012

He made his drag racing sponsor, NAPA, proud by showing that drag racers can also do oval racing. 

Ron raced until he led in the first heat race and was doing well in the second heat race until he hit the wall and spun around. 

His car was damaged, but his team quickly fixed it. However, his car gave up near the end of the race, so that he couldn’t finish. 

Despite not finishing, Capps had a lot of fun and found oval racing quite different from what he was used to. 

He joked about not being as skilled in oval racing as in drag racing. 

After the race, he headed to Topeka for the Menards NHRA Nationals race. The Nhra qualifications for the race started soon after.
