CLERMONT, Ind. (Sept. 3, 2004) - Ron Capps opened qualifying at the 50th running of the Mac Tools U.S. Nationals in the No. 20 spot Friday at Indianapolis Raceway Park.

The three-time Skoal Showdown (1998, '99, 2002) winner drove his Skoal RacingSM Chevy Monte Carlo to a pass of 6.434 seconds at 139.60 to claim the No.20 qualifying position.

"We ran pretty well during testing here at I.R.P. last week," Capps said. "We've got a good baseline and I'm confident that Roland (Leong), Todd (Okuhara) and the gang will get the car where it needs to be on Saturday."

The 14-time NHRA winner looks to move into the quick 16 when Funny Car qualifying resumes with sessions two and three at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. (CT) on Saturday.
