Post-Race Recap

Jack Beckman raced to victory at the first event of the NHRA Countdown to the Championship and moved into the Funny Car points lead

“To win on a great side-by-side race, and to do it on a holeshot, that’s just awesome,” said Beckman. “If you’re going to win a race, the way to do it is a close side-by-side one like John and I had in the final.

“Winning this one is extra special for a few reasons: it’s our first win in the SRT Hellcat, all of our teammates have already done that, we took over the points lead, and it’s been way too long since we’ve been to the winner’s circle. For a shot in the arm, for a psychological boost, for that mental edge, that intangible that I think you need to be able to win a championship, this might be the thing that is the first step for us.”

Survivor's Story

Driving a 330+mph Top Fuel dragster isn’t the most courageous thing Jack Beckman has ever done. In fact, it isn’t even a close second.

In 2003, Beckman achieved a life long dream when he won the NHRA Lucas Oil Super Comp national championship. However, his celebration was short lived as he soon began experiencing health problems that were ultimately diagnosed as high grade level 3B lymphoma, a cancer that had invaded his body from
hip to neck.
