Snake Racing News: Don Prudhomme Racing Announces Resignation of Ron Capps

VISTA, Calif. (Nov. 17, 2004) - Don Prudhomme Racing announced today the resignation of driver Ron Capps.

"Our plan is to continue racing with Tommy Johnson Jr. and Larry Dixon next season, while also considering other opportunities that would allow us to field either an additional Top Fuel dragster or Funny Car in 2005," Prudhomme said.

"My relationship with Ron (Capps) is more than just a driver/owner relationship. More importantly, we are very close friends and will remain that. I wish Ron all the success at whatever venture he decides to pursue."

"This was a very difficult decision for me to make because Don and Lynn Prudhomme have been more than just an employer, but rather a family to me," Capps added. "I share those same sentiments for those at U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Company and the entire Skoal Racing team. Being teamed with both Larry (Dixon) and T.J. (Tommy Johnson) was more than I could have ever imagined as a driver.

"Snake took a chance on me eight years ago and I owe every bit of that success to him and the Prudhomme family. My personal relationship with Snake has and will continue to remain solid at and away from the race track."

Don Prudhomme Racing is headquartered in Vista, Calif., with a second shop - Don Prudhomme Racing, Brownsburg, Ind. - serving as the base for racing operations. Drivers Larry Dixon and Tommy Johnson Jr. complete the roster of Don Prudhomme Racing drivers and proudly represent such racing partners as Miller Brewing Co., U.S. Smokeless Tobacco Co., Lucas Oil Products and Raybestos.
