Beckman snaps long winless streak, wins at 2015 Four-Wide Nationals

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Infinite Hero Foundation Funny Car pilot Jack Beckman has finally won a race. He ended a streak that dated back to the 2012 season.

The California native won the sixth annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at zMAX Dragway in Concord, North Carolina. This was his first win since winning the AAA Insurance NHRA Midwest Nationals near St. Louis in Madison, Illinois.

“I can’t guarantee we’ll win another race this season,” said Beckman, the 2012 Funny Car world champion. “I think we will, but I can’t say for 100 percent. But, I know for sure we’ll be better than we were today. Jimmy [Prock, crew chief] and the team will be even better the rest of the year because they’re getting better every race. All the little things are coming together and now the car is doing what they hope it will.”

This is Beckman’s second win in this event. He now has three wins at this track and 16 wins in his career.

He defeated Del Worsham, Chad Head, and Tommy Johnson Jr. in the final quad. Beckman, according to Drag Race Central, won by 0.0174 seconds, or approx. 8 feet ahead of Del Worsham.

Worsham defeated Chad Head by 3.445 seconds, or more than 100 feet. Head defeated Johnson Jr. by 4.703 seconds, or more than 100 feet.

Beckman went 3.983 at 308.78 mph to claim the Wally. Worsham – who was looking to repeat as the winner – went 4.012 at 314.24 mph. Head went 7.455 at 92.95 mph. Johnson Jr. went 12.177 at 40.68 mph.

With the win, Beckman is now seventh in points as the team’s head to the NHRA New England Nationals at New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire this coming weekend.
