Clay Millican finally gets his first NHRA Top Fuel win

Ron Capps picked up his fifth win in seven races in Funny Car, but it was his first since Kansas back in May. The Don Schumacher racing driver qualified a disappointing 10th, but was able to defeat Alexis DeJoria, Robert Hight and Matt Hagan en route to the final where he took on Jack Beckman. Beckman got down the track quicker but Capps took the win on a Holeshot. The two also faced each other in the final last weekend, with Beckman taking home the win.
