Video Details

Ron Capps beats Jonnie Lindberg in the Funny Car final at the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals in St. Louis.

ANNOUNCER: Jonnie Lindberg's not threatened. Ron Capps may have experience on him. Now let's see which tuner has the better tune up. Treachery. Old age and treachery. Slow and steady. Ron Capps, Rahn Tobler, Octobler. Call it what you will, but it's another win for Ron Capps who does get to win number eight. His single season high. Better, three better, than previous.

Well missed it by that much. Rahn Tobler that's how well-- or how comfortable he is with this tune up. And that's how much confident that he is in how he puts the settings on the power level, on the clutch. He called a 3.86 he runs a 3.87 in the final.

And, you know, in the other lane Jonnie Lindberg slowed down just enough to take them out of the race. But you know Ron Capps-- 300ths of a second quicker at 330 feet. And two mile an hour faster for Jonnie Lindberg. So he was gaining on him, but a little too late. Ron Capps over the-- crossed the finish line first.
