2023 NHRA LUCAS OIL NATIONALS - BRAINERD RESULTS
SUNDAY FINAL - CAPPS, BROWN AND GLENN POST BRAINERD WINS
Ron Capps, the defending Funny Car world champion, claimed his 75th career win on Sunday at Brainerd International Raceway, solidifying his position as the new points leader in the 41st annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals. The 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series continued with Antron Brown securing victory in the Top Fuel category, while Dallas Glenn emerged as the winner in the Pro Stock class.
In the Final Round, Capps clocked a time of 3.887 seconds at 332.75 mph in his 11,000-horsepower NAPA Auto Parts Toyota GR Supra, surpassing Robert Hight’s 3.900 at 324.90 mph. This marked Capps’ second win of the 2023 season and his seventh career win at Brainerd International Raceway, the second-most in NHRA history for the facility.
Capps defeated Jim Campbell, Tim Wilkerson, and Bob Tasca III to reach the final round and secure his milestone victory. As the current points leader, Capps heads to Indy with a 21-point advantage.
“I’ve won with different crew chiefs here; there’s just something about this place,” Capps said. “We make a point of going out and celebrating with everybody in the Zoo, and we did that again last night. We’re taking the Wally out to the Zoo tonight. Everybody there helped us win, and they should get a picture.
“We have all kinds of Funny Cars that have won multiple races this year, and here we are with the points lead. We had one win coming in here. That tells you the consistency. It grows my confidence, we grow each other’s confidence, and it’s just fun right now. We had a goal to get to Indy and win the regular season points. To have the points lead going into Indy, it’s just so cool.”
Hight reached his 99th career final round on Sunday by defeating Bobby Bode, Dave Richards, and teammate John Force.
Meanwhile, in the Top Fuel category, Brown enjoyed a dominant weekend, adding another triumph to his recent victory in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge. Brown’s 3.715-second run at 326.08 mph in his Matco Tools/Toyota dragster secured his 73rd career win and his sixth win at Brainerd. He defeated Shawn Langdon, Steve Torrence, and Mike Salinas before besting Leah Pruett in the final round. This impressive double-up weekend propelled Brown to third place in the points standings as he aims for his fourth world title.
“Every lap we made, we were very competitive. We got in eliminations and knew it was going to be a very different day,” Brown said. “The conditions were going to be better, but that’s where Brian Corradi and Mark Oswald [co-crew chiefs] shine. The conditions change, they make an adjustment, and they know right where to put it. We started with a good lap, we were the quickest and fastest of the first session, and that set the tone for the day.
“Then you go in race mode where you have to race smart. They stayed in that zone, and the consistency paid off. That’s what it takes to win races and championships. I’ve always loved racing at this track. This race is the turning point that can really get you ready for the championship.”
Pruett reached the finals for the third time in 2023 and 22nd time overall by defeating Tony Schumacher, defending world champ Brittany Force and points leader Justin Ashley. In the points standings, Ashley’s lead now stands at 101 points over Torrence.
Dallas Glenn continued his dominant Pro Stock season, securing his fourth win of the year with a time of 6.566 seconds at 207.56 mph in his RAD Torque Systems Camaro. Notably, Glenn’s victory also marked his eighth career win and built a comfortable 284-point lead over Matt Hartford in the points standings.
Glenn defeated Jerry Tucker, defending champion Erica Enders, and Aaron Stanfield on his way to the final round, where he triumphed over Kyle Koretsky in an all-KB Titan Racing showdown.
“I feel like the car did most of the work today. It’s running so well,” Glenn said. “I was a little worried; it seems to be that the car works really good when it’s hot and humid out. It showed on Saturday when I picked up four bonus points in qualifying. But we went out there with the first run today, and I didn’t think it was that great of a run, but we were second of the session. We just went out there and made four really solid laps. It shook a little bit in the final. I think the track was just a little too good, and we needed to get after it a little more, but it made it through it.
“I know Kyle really, really wanted to win that one, especially here for Lucas Oil, but that’s one thing I love about KB Titan Racing, there are never any team orders. We put the absolute best tune-up in the car, and we let the drivers figure it out. When I won the semis, and it was an all-KBT final, that’s when the real emotion of winning comes out because no matter what, the trophy is coming home with us.”
Koretsky reached the finals for the first time in 2023 and the seventh time in his career, getting past Camrie Caruso, No. 1 qualifier Greg Anderson, and Deric Kramer.
The NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series returns to action Aug. 30-Sept. 3 with the 69th annual Dodge Power Brokers NHRA U.S. Nationals at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park.
SATURDAY QUALIFYING - ASHLEY SLIPS BY FOR 2ND 2023 NO. 1 QUALIFIER; CAPPS, ANDERSON HOLD ON TO TOP SPOTS IN BRAINERD
Justin Ashley, Ron Capps, and Greg Anderson emerged as the No. 1 qualifiers in their respective categories at the 14th race of the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season.
Ashley’s dominant performance on Saturday at Brainerd Raceway solidified his position at the top as he blazed down the track in his Phillips Connect/Toyota dragster, clocking an impressive time of 3.746 seconds at 328.14 mph. Despite the expected cooler conditions on raceday, Ashley’s outstanding qualifying run sent a clear message to his rivals.
“That’s a stout run with the conditions what they were,” Ashley said. “Nothing surprises me with the team that we have, but nonetheless, it was going to be tough to go out there and run as well as we did. It really just speaks volumes of our team. It’s kind of a unique situation because I’m not sure how much you can actually take of that and apply it tomorrow. It’s going to be cooler, much different out there tomorrow. But we positioned ourselves the best we can heading into raceday.
“I’m looking forward to what will hopefully be a long and exciting raceday. It’s going to be cool out tomorrow, so I think you’re going to see a lot of really close racing and a lot of really fast racing.”
Finishing closely behind him, Doug Kalitta ended the day in the second spot with a time of 3.757 seconds at 330.31 mph, followed by Steve Torrence at 3.758 seconds and 328.54 mph.
In the highly competitive Funny Car category, Capps secured the No. 1 qualifying position with a run of 3.894 seconds at 330.23 mph in his NAPA Auto Parts Toyota GR Supra. The back-to-back Funny Car world champion achieved his second No. 1 qualifier of the season and the 38th of his illustrious career.
“We’ve been chasing this all year and just haven’t been able to seal the deal and get the job done,” Hight said. “I do feel this Cornwell Tools Camaro has turned the corner, and we’re getting to where we need to be. Really want to thank Mission Foods for putting up the money and this challenge. It makes things exciting on Saturday and gives us some practice out there racing. You better be on your game.
“Throughout the year, people who win this thing seem to go out there and double up, so that’s our goal tomorrow. We need to go out there and get a win.”
Capps’ 3.894 at 330.23 in his 11,000-horsepower NAPA Auto Parts Toyota GR Supra held up from Friday, giving the back-to-back Funny Car world champ his second No. 1 qualifier this season and 38th in his career. He’ll look for his seventh win at Brainerd on Sunday, opening eliminations against Jim Campbell. J.R. Todd took second with a 3.907 at 327.98, and Hagan’s 3.910 at 328.06 put him third.
Capps, aiming for his seventh win at Brainerd, will commence eliminations against Jim Campbell. J.R. Todd secured the second spot with a time of 3.907 seconds at 327.98 mph, closely followed by Matt Hagan at 3.910 seconds and 328.06 mph.
“You never take anything for granted; the equalizer will be those cool conditions,” Capps said. “Tomorrow is going to be epic, some pretty incredible times and speeds. But the yellow hat is just such a tribute to how good our guys are. As a driver, you stage the car and keep it in the groove. But I look back at that first run we had to shut the car off, and I thought, man, that’s really unfortunate. We really don’t get very many races. We get two qualifying runs on Friday, but the fact they caught that, we didn’t get anything hurt, then we went back up and got the No. 1 spot, it sure felt a lot better.”
In the Pro Stock category, Anderson continued to showcase his dominance in qualifying, claiming his first No. 1 position of the season. Anderson seized the top spot with an impressive time of 6.597 seconds at 205.79 mph in his HendrickCars.com Chevrolet Camaro during Friday’s session.
“It’s very gratifying to know that you can run in heat, you can run in cool, you can run in any conditions. I’m proud of the KB Titan Racing guys and the job they’ve done this weekend,” Anderson said. “I’m looking forward to tomorrow; it’ll be a more fun day for racers. The cars will be fast and hooked up. It’ll be a throw everything you’ve got at the racetrack, and it should hold it. Those are exciting days for us; that’s how we love to race.”
Matt Hartford secured the second position with a time of 6.598 seconds at 205.54 mph, while Erica Enders locked in the third spot with a time of 6.603 seconds at 207.27 mph.

#2FAST2TASTY SATURDAY - BROWN, HIGHT AND ENDERS BREAK THROUGH WITH FIRST #2FAST2TASTY WINS IN BRAINERD
Top Fuel standout Antron Brown secured his long-awaited victory in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge, triumphing over defending world champion Brittany Force in the finals of the bonus event at Brainerd International Raceway on Saturday. The race, part of the 41st annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals, showcased three first-time winners, including Robert Hight in Funny Car and Erica Enders in Pro Stock.
In an intense final round, Brown piloted his 11,000-horsepower Matco Tools/Toyota dragster to victory with a clocking of 3.840 seconds at 292.01 mph. Earlier in the day, he had already vanquished points leader Justin Ashley before overcoming Force. As a three-time world champion, Brown eyes the opportunity to claim another win on Sunday in Brainerd and clinch his second event victory this season.
“We've been wanting to win this for a long, long time,” Brown said. “We made it a couple times, and it felt good to get past that first round today. All these cars are just tough, tough competitors. To go into that final round against Brittany and the way their car's been running, to go against Justin first round. They're the two heavy-hitters in the class, so to pull off that is very, very special for us.
“That championship is right around the corner, so we have to keep going and doing what we do. It feels good to get that first #2Fast2Tasty win, and for Mission to put this on and give us something to race for on Saturday, it just feels like this is Sunday but we're racing on Saturday. It's really cool to get to do that and watch the fans go crazy.”
In the Funny Car category, Robert Hight emerged victorious in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge final, prevailing over points leader Matt Hagan with a time of 3.988 seconds at 315.05 mph in his Cornwell Tools/AAA Chevrolet Camaro SS. With this victory, Hight secured his first-ever win in the bonus race, indicating a surge in form at a critical juncture after encountering difficulties earlier this summer. Hight's earlier victory over Bob Tasca III, coupled with his win against Hagan in the finals, sets the stage for his potential third overall victory of the season.
“We've been chasing this all year and just haven't been able to seal the deal and get the job done,” Hight said. “I do feel this Cornwell Tools Camaro has turned the corner and we're getting to where we need to be. Really want to thank Mission Foods for putting up the money and this challenge. It makes things exciting on Saturday and gives us some practice out there racing. You better be on your game.
“Throughout the year, people who win this thing seem to go out there and double up so that's our goal tomorrow. We need to go out there and get a win.”
Staying in form, Erica Enders displayed her skills in Pro Stock, securing the win in the Mission #2Fast2Tasty NHRA Challenge by defeating Deric Kramer in the finals with a time of 6.700 seconds at 203.95 mph on a holeshot. The defending world champion, who had a strong start by eliminating points leader Dallas Glenn in the opening round, carried on her momentum from the previous weekend's victory in Topeka. Enders showcased her championship potential during the 2023 season.
“This is very exciting,” Enders said. “We went to the finals last weekend and weren't able to get it done, so to get it done here is pretty exciting. I'm really excited to put that car in the winner's circle and put our name on that trophy. Coming into the year, we thought, we're going to do some good – and then we haven't. So it's very meaningful.
“I've always loved racing at Brainerd, it's been a track that's been really good for me, but aside from that, it's just really fun coming up here. The last time we were here in 2019, my homie Jason Line put it on me in the finals and took home the win in his home track, but we've had a lot of success here and we're looking to go one round further.”
The Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals eliminations are scheduled to commence at 11 a.m. CT on Sunday at Brainerd International Raceway.

FRIDAY QUALIFYING - CAPPS DRIVES TO THE LEAD IN BRAINERD FC, KALITTA TOPS SHORTENED TF QUALIFYING
Ron Capps, the reigning Funny Car world champion, made a strong statement on Friday, securing the provisional No. 1 spot at the 41st annual Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals at Brainerd International Raceway.
Joining Capps, a six-time Lucas Oil Nationals champion, in the provisional No. 1 spots are Doug Kalitta in Top Fuel and Greg Anderson in Pro Stock. The event marks the 14th out of 21 races in the 2023 NHRA Camping World Drag Racing Series season.
Capps stopped the clocks at 3.894 seconds at 330.23 mph in his NAPA Auto Parts Toyota GR Supra. If his position holds, it will mark his second No. 1 qualifier this season and his 38th overall in his career. Only John Force has more victories at Brainerd, making it a significant event for Capps.
“It’s hard to explain, but I love this place, a lot of great memories,” Capps said. “That was just another version of it. We had to shut the car off in the first run, and I sat there at the starting line and watched (Matt) Hagan go low ET.
“(Crew chief) Guido (Dean Antonelli) and I had a talk [before the later session], and he said, ‘It’s going to be hot tomorrow, and I don’t want to not be in the top half – but we can’t improve. I don’t want to throw down and miss it and smoke the tires. There are 17 cars.’ But I just looked at him and said, ‘Dude, go for it. Throw down.’ He just smiled. He didn’t throw down as much, but it was enough.”
J.R. Todd currently holds the second spot, while Matt Hagan, the points leader, sits in third place.
In the Top Fuel category, Doug Kalitta made the quickest run during the opening session, completing the quarter-mile track in 3.757 seconds at a speed of 330.31 mph in his Mac Tools dragster. Due to limited daylight, the second session was canceled, making Kalitta’s performance all the more valuable.
With the strong showing, Kalitta is in line for his second No. 1 qualifier this season and his 52nd overall.
“That was good. You never can tell, really, but this track is usually really good, so I was hopeful we could get down,” Kalitta said. “I’m real proud of my guys, and I can’t wait to see how it holds up for tomorrow. I’m happy for today, for sure. They do an awesome job on the track, and I’m pretty confident we’ll have two good lanes for tomorrow, so I’m looking forward to it.
“We’re definitely hungry for a win but just making it to the final – if you can get to the final at every race, you can keep your points going. Hopefully, we’ll fall into that win category again, and this would be a great place to do it. I love coming to Brainerd. It’s always great coming back and seeing what we can do.”
Steve Torrence secured the second spot, with a time of 3.758 seconds at a speed of 328.54 mph, while Brittany Force sits in third place with a time of 3.762 seconds at 331.45 mph. Justin Ashley, the current points leader, occupies the sixth position.
The Pro Stock category witnessed a dominant performance from local hero Greg Anderson, who claimed the provisional No. 1 position.
Anderson, a native of Duluth, Minnesota, led both qualifying sessions and ended the day with a best 6.597 seconds at 205.79 mph in his HendrickCars.com Chevrolet Camaro. Anderson will secure his first No. 1 spot this season and the 122nd of his illustrious career if his position holds.
“Being back home is cool,” Anderson said. “This is where I grew up, where it all started for me. It’s pretty darn cool to come back after a long four years. The facility is wonderful, the racetrack is great, the weather is great – it’s just like I remember it. It’s been a really good Friday, and we got all the points that they had to give today with two pretty much flawless runs.
“They were absolutely right on par, and I couldn’t be prouder of the guys that work on these KB Titan Chevys back here. They’re impressive. It’s time to win a race before we get into the Countdown. You have to peak at the right time, and it’s the right time going into Indy and the playoffs and here at my home track.”
Matt Hartford follows Anderson in second place, recording a time of 6.598 seconds at a speed of 205.54 mph. Erica Enders, the defending Pro Stock champion, who clinched victory in Topeka last week, occupies the third slot with a time of 6.603 seconds at 207.27 mph.
