Hudson and Capps Take Surprising Wins at Famoso

BAKERSFIELD, Calif.- NHRA-- Neither Don Hudson nor Jon Capps where on the long lists of probable winners at Famoso Raceway's Pacific Division Lucas Oil Series event, but they went home with the trophies in Top Alcohol Dragster and Top Alcohol Funny Car. With such notables as Morgan Lucas, Chris Demke and Darryl Hitchman leading the pack after qualifying, Hudson was indeed a long shot to make it to the finals. But when Lucas ripped off a 5.521-second, 265.09 mph performance in the first round, Hudson answered back with a 5.520 at 259.74 mph shot in the semi-finals. So regardless of how the pre-race qualifying had stacked up, it looked to be anybody's race when the two met in the final. Actually, it was over very quickly as Lucas overpowered the race track and smoked the tires to give Hudson the win.
