BRISTOL — The Thunder will return to the valley this week with the 16th annual Thunder Valley Nationals and one driver will be rolling into Bristol Dragway on a hot streak.
Ron Capps won his 2nd title of the year on June 5th at Epping, New Hampshire and followed that up by defeating Jack Beckman Sunday for his third NHRA Mello Yello drag racing series win of the year.
The win also catapulted Capps into the points lead in the funny car category.
The series now moves to Bristol this week for the Thunder Valley Nationals, where Capps has picked up three wins in his career and where he says it’s the people that make Bristol so special.
Thunder Valley Nationals qualifying gets underway this Friday and there are still good tickets available..
