NHRA's page is reporting that Ron Capps took part in a very successful test session in an IROC car.

Drag race drivers have traditionally been left out of this series I suppose cause everyone assumes they can't drive around corners. Well.... to that!

I contend that anyone who can manhandle a 6000 HP car down a quarter mile at over 300 MPH can drive about anything.

Put any of the NASCAR drivers in one and watch the fun. Not that they aren't good drivers, its just such a totally different set of circumstances. I think they'd be scared silly.

Capps impressive debut will hopefully get more NHRA drivers into this series which is great for the sport.

Yeah DV,

I agree drag racers are real race car drivers, even if we don't have to turn.

IIRC, John Force was real vocal (imagine that ) a few years back about IROC ignoring drag racers. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm...

It would be funny to see how many NASCAR guys would turn down the offer to drive John Forces Stang
