This week, 74 time NHRA event winner, Ron Capps announced that Revchem, a leading provider of advanced composite materials and solutions, has partnered with him and his championship winning NAPA Auto Parts Toyota Funny Car team, Ron Capps Motorsports.
Revchem Composites has committed themselves to actively supporting and promoting excellence within the motorsports industry and this collaboration offers the opportunity to showcase Revchem’s extensive range of advanced materials on Ron’s 11,000 horsepower Toyota GR Supra Funny Car.
For Dean, ‘Guido’ Antonelli, Ron’s crew chief, he knows the incredible value and importance of having partners that could have a make or break impact on track.
“Their state-of-the-art materials and expertise in the field are what drew us to Revchem,” Guido said. “Of course, no one sends their car down the track expecting it to come back in need of body repairs, but the fact is, things happen, and there will be times when we need to make a repair on our (Funny Car) body or some of the components that bolt on to the body or the actual race car itself, and I feel confident knowing Revchem will be able to supply us with the products to get the job done.
“We’ve already started talking with their engineers to help give them a better, firsthand understanding of the stress that a Funny Car body goes through so that they can help direct us to the best products to make the corrections.”
In addition to lending their expertise and knowledge to Ron Capps Motorsports, Revchem will receive associate partner level branding on Ron’s Funny Car and firesuit.
President of Revchem Composites, Pete Pendleton, had this to say about the partnership, “Revchem Composites is thrilled to partner with Ron Capps Motorsports for the remainder of the 2023 NHRA Camping World Series season and beyond. “Ron Capps embodies the spirit of excellence and determination that aligns perfectly with our company values. We look forward to watching him make a run for his third consecutive championship as we approach the second half of the season.”
Ron and the NAPA team will take to the track this weekend to kick off the Western Swing at the Dodge Power Brokers NHRA Mile-High Nationals, July 14th – 16th in Denver, Colorado.
