      Ron Capps and his
      link hidden, please login to view Toyota GR Supra looked strong in qualifying at the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway, but the three-time Funny Car world champion didn’t have the Sunday eliminations results he was looking for after a final-round finish at the Las Vegas Four-Wide Nationals two weeks ago. The No. 5 qualifier, Capps struggled to find traction on the starting line Sunday afternoon, leading to a first-round exit. Crew chief Dean ‘Guido’ Antonelli tuned Capps to the quickest and fastest pass of Friday’s first qualifying session, a 3.877 E.T. at 335.40 MPH, to earn three bonus points. Capps had traction issues in the second session, but he came back on Saturday and ran a pair of 3-second passes, a 3.994 E.T. and a 3.901 E.T., to qualify fifth.
      In Sunday’s first round of eliminations, Capps lined up against No. 4 qualifier Alexis DeJoria, No. 12 qualifier J.R. Todd, and No. 13 qualifier Buddy Hull to form the Funny Car Marquee Matchup. Capps drove into tire smoke after smashing the throttle pedal in his NAPA Auto Care machine
      and wasn’t able to recover. He noted the team is still figuring out the characteristics of the new car they brought out earlier this month.
      “Man, these weekends are tough,” said Capps, a four-time winner at zMAX. “I was so excited for Guido. We unloaded and went to No. 1 qualifier. It shows the hard work that our NAPA Auto Care team did testing Monday after Vegas. I’ve talked time and time again about how we have
      to get ahead of the competition. Guido and our team could easily go off of what we ran last year, and we would probably win races and have a shot at a championship, but we’re looking to be better and that’s the sort of thing I love about this team.”
      Capps, who’s in his third year as a driver and team owner, pointed out the off-track highlights of an otherwise challenging weekend.
      “Obviously, Vegas was such a great race Friday through Sunday, and then you get to Charlotte and all the NASCAR fans came out and we almost sold the place out every day,” Capps said. “It was just an incredible crowd, and we love doing [these Four-Wide races]. We love especially doing it earlier in the year. We see the same fans when we come back in the Countdown for the second race of the playoffs.
      “Had a blast all weekend with our Toyota crossover event, and then having my NAPA teammate, Christian Eckes, come hang out with us on Friday, which was a lot of fun,” Capps continued. “I was hoping to take the Wally to NAPA headquarters on Tuesday, but I’m looking forward to hanging out with my NAPA teammates, Brad Sweet, Chase Elliott, and Christian Eckes. It’s a fun event we do every year at headquarters, and then we’ll focus on going to Chicago.”
      The Ron Capps Motorsports Funny Car team will have a few weeks away from the track before the next stop on the 2024 NHRA Mission Foods Drag Racing Series schedule, the Route 66 Nationals, May 17-19, at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Ill., outside Chicago.
      Start / Finish: No. 5 / def. in first round
      Points Standing / Total: No. 6 / 274 pts. (-125)
      Next Race: May 17 – 19, Joliet, Ill., Route 66 NHRA Nationals

      Standard Motor Products (SMP) announced the introduction of 208 new part numbers in its January new-number announcement.
      This most recent release provides new coverage in 72 distinct product categories and 115 part numbers for 2022, 2023 and 2024 model-year vehicles.
      Standard’s emission-control program sees expansion with the introduction of vapor canister purge pumps for popular General Motors SUVs such as the 2023-2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, and multiple EGR tubes covering 6.2 million vehicles.
      The Standard gas fuel-injection program also has grown with the release of new fuel injectors for GDI and MFI applications, as well as fuel-pressure regulators, fuel-pressure sensors, fuel-pump camshaft followers, high-pressure fuel pumps and more.
      Pentastar 3.6-liter engine oil filter housings may all look similar, but they feature distinct differences from year to year. Standard now offers coverage for the latest generation with coverage through 2024. Standard’s oil filter housing kits come completely assembled from the factory and include multiple design improvements over the original to address OE weak points.
      For powertrain-neutral categories, Standard has added 13 new ABS sensors, several parking brake actuators and Brake Pad Wear Sensors for vehicles like the 2023-21 Cadillac CT4 and heavy-duty General Motors trucks through the 2024 model-year.
      All-new QWIK-SENSOR TPMS multipacks of 25 are now available with rubber or metal valve stems. The kits include 25 individually packaged and protected QWIK-SENSOR multi-frequency TPMS sensors.
      Standard’s ADAS program continues to grow with the addition of 17 new park-assist cameras and 16 new park-assist sensors.
      Standard’s hybrid- and electric-vehicle program continues to expand with this release.
      Park-assist sensors are new for the 2023-2022 Mazda MX-30 EV, and ABS sensors are now available for the 2022-2019 Kia Niro EV, 2022-2019 Toyota Prius Prime and 2023-2019 Hyundai Nexo.
      Park-assist cameras are now available for the all-electric 2022 Ford E-Transit. Additionally, oil-pressure light switches are new for the hybrid 2023-2019 Lexus UX250h.
       “We’re starting the year strong, with 208 new numbers added to our best-in-industry product lines,” said Jack Ramsey, senior vice president of sales and marketing, SMP. “Standard and Four Seasons are committed to carrying this momentum throughout the new year, expanding our coverage for gas, diesel, hybrid and electric import and domestic vehicles.”
      All new applications are listed in the catalogs found at
