Ron Capps sure had an interesting March Meet. He drove Del Worsham’s recreation of the famous Blue Max Mustang and was surrounded by an awesome all star crew. Dean Antonelli, Chuck Worsham, and a host of other guys were having a ball for the weekend burning nitro and going fast. Ron strapped a great camera inside the car for his runs and the footage really illustrates what makes these nostalgia funnies so awesome.
Being very different in virtually all aspects from a modern nitro flopper, Capps launches this one off a pedal clutch, has to shift the transmission, and is peering over a much smaller blower than would be found on his normal NAPA whip. There’s a ton of driving going on as well. Watch him work the butterfly steering wheel in the first video.
This is great stuff!
