Nitro Funny Car driver Ron Capps is the latest Toyota Racing driver. He will be debuting a Toyota in the near future.
Capps will debut the new body this weekend at 4-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina. He will drive the new GR Supra body that J.R. Todd and Alexis DeJoria also drive.
“Ron Capps is a proven champion in NHRA competition and all-around one of the truly entertaining and engaging personalities in the pit area,” Paul Doleshal, Group Manager, Motorsports, Toyota Motor North America, said. “The drivers that pilot not only our GR Supra Funny Cars but all of our TGRNA vehicles in NHRA competition are not only talented behind the wheel but also ambassadors for our brand on and off the race track. And we couldn’t be happier to welcome Ron and his team to the family.”

“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.”
