“For Ron Capps Motorsports to partner with Toyota is literally a dream come true,” Capps said. “One thing I’ve learned pretty quickly as a team owner is how important it is to surround yourself with good people, and nothing exemplifies that more than what I’ve experienced with Toyota already. The commitment, the passion, and the history with Toyota goes hand-in-hand with our NHRA fans, and as someone who grew up in the sport, I can’t tell you how exciting it is for me to represent and join the family of Toyota drivers.

“It’s an exciting partnership for us and being able to debut the NAPA Auto Parts GR Supra Funny Car is one of the highlights of my NHRA career.”
