Spring Nationals Victory in Rockingham, North Carolina for IHRA Champion

“I looked at the win light three times going down the track to make sure it was really on,” said Beard. “I couldn’t believe it. I was screaming the whole way down the track and all the way up the return road. We race against the same people in the class just about everywhere we go, but there is something more special about winning a national event.”
Beard’s Volare is powered by a Mopar 360 Magnum crate motor and tips the scales at 3600 pounds. “We use K&N oil filters, K&N air filters and K&N valve breather covers,” he said. “I’m happy to be able to win for a great sponsor like K&N.”
Beard’s Spring Nationals victory gives him a slot in the IHRA Tournament of Champions. The IHRA’s new Tournament of Champions program automatically seeds every National event winner, along with the top three drivers in each division into a single race. It is a sudden-death battle for the World Championship that will be contested at the IHRA World Finals. Beard is in the mix and will hold a small home-track advantage.
