December 5, 2019: Fresh off his commanding NHRA Funny Car victory at the 2019 season finale in Pomona, the guys catch up with two-time NHRA Champion Jack Beckman during a well-deserved holiday break. Hooked on hot rods as a young kid in California, “Fast Jack” has more than earned his nickname, progressing from running 15.06 at 90 mph, to 3.92 at 323 mph! Noting how “good preparation leads to good performance,” Beckman speaks candidly about the trials and tribulations of racing nitro funny cars in the dark, and how having the right mindset can make the difference between life and death, as witnessed by his epic 2016 crash in Epping, NH.

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.
