RECAP/PHOTOS: 2022 Betway NHRA Carolina Nationals At zMAX Dragwayby Hunter Thomas September 29, 2022 0 comments
CONCORD, N.C. – The NHRA shook zMAX Dragway as it visited the track for the Betway NHRA Carolina Nationals.
Antron Brown captured his sixth zMAX Dragway victory; however, it was the first time that he had won in North Carolina since 2016. In Sunday’s final round, he topped Justin Ashley by a mere 0.195 seconds. Ashley had entered as the top qualifier. Brown’s race-winning time was 3.672 seconds at a scorching 335.73 mph.
Ron Capps outran Alexis DeJoria to win Sunday’s Funny Car final. He ran a lap of 3.967 seconds at 267.32 mph. Crazy enough, Capps won as his engine blew just prior to the finish line. With the victory, he now trails Robert Hight by 27 points in the standings.
Aaron Stanfield won in Pro Stock.
Up next on the NHRA Schedule is the NHRA Midwest Nationals at World Wide Technology Raceway, Sept. 30 – Oct. 2.
