passed Scotty Cannon for the #11 spot on the Winston points with his semi-final
win. Capps will be coming into his 5th final of the 2001 season. In the prior four
he's 2-2, defeating Al Hofmann and Whit Bazemore. The two losses came at the hands
of Frank Pedregon and Whit Bazemore.
This was over at the hit. Gilbertson couldn't wait and turned on the red bulb.
Capps would have been tough even it the light had been green.
