Ron Capps will be celebrating the star-spangled Fourth of July weekend at the NHRA New England Nationals with a patriotic livery on his NAPA Batteries Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat to support the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. Capps will also wear a special firesuit at the event,
NAPA continues to be a committed partner of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF) which serves United States military personnel experiencing Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). Throughout the month of July, NAPA Auto Parts is celebrating Military Month where with the purchase of select products, a donation will be made to the Intrepid Fallen Hero Fund.
Capps, a two-time winner of the event (2014, 2016) enters the event hot off of a No. 1 qualifying effort two weeks ago in Norwalk, and is looking forward to returning to a track where he not only has had previous success but appeals to him and his love of the sport’s history.
“New England Dragway has such an old-school vibe and the fact that this place is always a sell-out every time we’re there tells you we needed to race there,” he said. “We’ve been lucky enough to win Epping a couple of times. In 2016 we set a track record, were No. 1 qualifier and won the race. A clean sweep like that is rare but also memorable. Winning there twice has been great, but the fans are what stand out the most to me there; they’re so loyal.”
