“Fast” Jack Beckman is one of the most talented and colorful drivers on the NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing circuit. We managed to catch up with him during some quiet time at the 2011 PRO Winter Warm Up at Palm Beach International Raceway. Jack was nearing the end of a week of successful testing with his team.
What we found interesting about Beckman’s 2011 season outlook was the revelation that this was the very first time he was coming back into a campaign with the same crew all intact. While we know that there’s lots of personnel movements made on the larger teams during the winter, we were suprised to hear that through his career this was the first time his whole crew was made up of veterans.
At the time this video was shot, Beckman was not able to say that Aaron’s, the rental outlet chain, was the new sponsor on his car. That is not widely known information but at the time it was top secret stuff.
Beckman is a hot ticket and we’re working on doing some more BangShifty stuff with him in the coming months.
