The NHRA docked the Ron Capps-driven, NAPA Auto Parts Funny Car three points from Saturday’s qualifying for running a supercharger part submitted and approved by the NHRA’s previous nitro racing director Dan Olson, and the paperwork went unprocessed internally.
This, according to the ESPN2 broadcast aired on Sunday evening.
When contacted by CompetitionPlus.com, team owner Don Schumacher said the statement was inaccurate and was surprised it was aired on the broadcast.
Schumacher said the issue was resolved on Saturday.
“There were no points deducted from our team,” said Schumacher. “That is an inaccurate statement and will be retracted next week.”
NHRA VP of Operations Graham Light confirmed the team hadn't lost any points.
