Etchells Defeats Capps In First All-Camaro Funny Car Final - February 22, 1998

February 22, 1998
Chuck Etchells defeats Ron Capps in the Funny Car finals of the "Atsco Nationals" at Firebird Raceway in Chandler, Arizona, USA.

Capps defeated Dale Creasy Jr., Al Hofmann and Dean Skuza to reach the finals. Etchells eliminated Mitch McDowell, Whit Bazemore and Randy Anderson to make it into the finals.

This was the first ever all-Camaro final in NHRA Funny Car history. There was an all-Chevy final in 1985, however, at Firebird International Raceway, when John Collins, in an '85 Camaro, defeated John Force, in an '85 Corvette.
