One NAPA driver checks in on another at Phoenix International Raceway
Phoenix has always been a great racing town, so it's no surprise that plenty of racers turn out whenever the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series comes to town.
One of the visiting racers for today's Good Sam 500 at Phoenix International Raceway is NHRA pilot Ron Capps, the second-most prolific winner in the Funny Car class.
Given that Capps is sponsored by NAPA Auto Parts, it made perfect sense that he was a guest of Chase Elliott, driver of the NAPA-sponsored No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet.
