1. Ron Capps is a drag racer who competes in the National Hot Rod Association. Last Friday his car was going about 300 miles per hour in the NHRA Winternationals event when this happened.
4. Capps walked away from the accident. “I’m good,” he told the Los Angeles Times the next day. “I actually slept good.”
5. Ron Capps probably doesn’t complain as much as the rest of us do about things like the weather and having to wait in line.
