About Jack Beckman
…overjoyed at the fact that I am now in my twelfth year of remission, have a gorgeous wife and two perfect children, and have the job that I’d always dreamed of.
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.
