Pritchett and Capps win in Houston and Helms Wins Stock
6 years ago Racing
Mopar Hemi® power remains on a roll in the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series, with Mopar and Dodge drivers Leah Pritchett and Ron Capps claiming the Top Fuel and Funny Car wins, respectively, during the NHRA SpringNationals at Royal Purple Raceway near Houston. The wins mark the third dual victories for Mopar-powered Don Schumacher Racing (DSR) machines in the Nitro category through five events in 2017, and the fourth Mopar win in each class overall.
Another Mopar driver also had a weekend to remember in two Sportsman categories, as multiple-time Stock world champion Kevin Helms took home the Wally in Stock Eliminator and went to the final in Super Stock driving two separate late model Dodge Challengers.
