Except for his present moment as a team owner and when he first started as a driver for Roger Primm, multi-time champion Ron Capps has been involved in driving for multi-car operations. He’s not ready to get out of the seat any time soon, so the NAPA Auto Parts-sponsored driver eyes a day when he could expand his empire of nitromethane. 

“We’re already looking at adding a dragster,” Capps admitted. “I’ve been a part of multi-car teams. When I first signed on with Don Prudhomme, I jumped right into a multi-car team – two Funny Cars and a dragster, and then when I went to Don Schumacher’s, he had seven teams at that time. Guido and I have talked about expanding, and I’ve always said I’ll only do it when Guido feels like we’re ready; he’s the leader of our team. 

“If he’s okay with adding a car, which he is, we’ll add a Top Fuel dragster. So, we’ve already started that process and will do it at the right time. It’s something we’re actively working towards, but we’re not going to just jump at the first thing that comes our way. It has to be the right fit, and it has to all make sense.”

If indeed Capps gets the blessing from Guido to expand, it won’t be in a situation where he could hire his own assassin, much like John Force characterized Tony Pedregon when he expanded to a second flopper. 
“We don’t want to race against ourselves,” Capps said. “With Guido calling the shots, I know we’ll have two of the best cars out there and we don’t want to be in a position where we’re having to race ourselves.”
