These two matched up earlier this year in the Sonoma final and Scelzi won that one. He holds a five to four in head to head match ups. Scelzi is out of the gate first and this is a great drag race. Ron Capps' incremental margins (negative if behind): 60ft(-0.003), 330 ft(0.012), 660ft(0.010), 1,000ft(0.009). MOV: 0.0103 seconds (approximately 5 feet). Capps with the win is now just two points behind Scelzi and Force is 28 points behind Scelzi as we go into the final race of the year.
