Another busy weekend flies by for the Duct Tape Team with loads of frustration and excitement. Tensions are high as the season comes to a close. As the IHRA race event was under way, Michael Beard took to the track for the World Finals Nitro Jam at Virginia Motorsports Park and during the second qualifying session, the Duct Tape Volare had issues with a broken rear-end.

The weekend seemed to come to a dim close for Beard but, to his surprise he was given the opportunity to get back behind the wheel and head toward victory lane.

"Thanks to the generosity Jeff and Zac Ross (who I purchased the Volare from back in 2005), I was still able to compete in the two major shootout races, driving Zac Ross's Dodge Avenger."

Beard took on the challenge and ended up racing in the Summit Racing Stock Allstar showdown. Call it luck or call it skill but, Beard ended up winning the Summit Stock final in the Ross racing Dodge Avenger. This race win brought much reward for Beard and his race team.
The Duck Tape Volare will be down for the rest of 2010 as they replace the rear end and transmission with beefier components.

"As the Summit All Stars Stock Champion, I received $5,000, a special Summit All Stars trophy, a Gold Card for entry into National/Divisional events next year, and a qualifying spot in both the 2011 Summit All Stars and the 2011 Tournament of Champions!"

Not to mention, "Competition Plus Magazine bestowed upon me the Mike Aiello Award," referred to by the media as "The Spirit of Drag Racing Award," which honors determination and the spirit to persevere and remain positive in spite of obstacles. ", and for overcoming the challenges of Bell's Palsy." To have a weekend go from a broken rear-end to the victory circle is something that no racer would expect but, would proudly boast.

This victory may be one of many this season as, "The Duck Tape Volare will be down for the rest of the 2010 season as we take the time to replace the rear end and transmission with beefier components that will sustain the massive number of runs made. The Duck Tape Turismo will pick up the slack as we head for Montgomery Motorsports Park this weekend, Oct. 22-24, 2010 for the 4th Annual Footbrake Classic, consisting of three $5,000-to-win races and one $20,000-to-win race."
