Kyle Golden won Fast Jack’s helmet.

The biggest reaction to the weekend was when Beckman joined Firebird Raceway’s General Manager, Scott New, and NHRA Division Six announcer Stevie Wong in the tower during the running of the professional cars giving the crowd insight and explanation of what the drivers were experiencing. Beckman, a former drag racing instructor for Frank Hawley’s Drag Racing School, has experience in many different types of cars.

Beckman is also a student of the sport, more like an academic of the sport. His knowledge in regards to the sport is phenomenal. He was gracious enough to take a few moments of time to speak with DRO Nostalgia Editor Brian Losness on Saturday morning of the Pepsi Nightfire Nationals.
