Two of the NHRA's three Funny Car championship contenders will join us live today to talk about this weekend's season-ending "Auto Club NHRA Finals" in Pomona, California. Thirteen-time Powerade World Champion John Force and perennial title contender Ron Capps will appear in our second hour today, to talk about the season-long battle for the championship, the pressure of this weekend's race, and their mutual respect for one another.
Force comes to Pomona with a 71-point edge over Capps and a 73-point advantage over teammate (and son-in-law) Robert Hight in his quest for a fourteenth NHRA World Championship. A year ago, Force and Capps faced a nearly identical situation, entering the season's final race in a razor close, three-man battle with eventual champion Gary "Wild Thing" Scelzi.
We will also get an overview of the Top Fuel and Pro Stock Motorcycle championship pictures with NHRA.com's Chief Editor, Rob Geiger. Jason Line clinched the Pro Stock title two weeks ago in Las Vegas, unseating three-time consecutive titlist Greg Anderson.
