Beard drove his Duck Tape/Loctite Volare to two round wins at the UTI World Finals in Rockingham, North Carolina in the IHRA National Event.

The finish was good enough to pick up 11 crucial points in the World points chase and allowed Beard to maintain his 9th place standing in Stock Eliminator.

“Considering all the trouble I’ve had this year, I can’t complain,” said Beard. “We fought a miss in the car from the second round of the season opener all the way to the end of August. It’s amazing we were able to pull out so many great finishes in such a short time.”

Beard uses K&N Engineering Products. “I protect my engines with K&N Filters,” he said. “There is a lot of dirt around and engines cost a lot of money. K&N products keep the dirt out of our engines. We also notice improvement in our gas mileage.”

Racing continues through December in the Carolinas for Beard and the Duck Tape Crew.
