“With three days of racing, the points standings shuffled and by Monday’s final event it was difficult to figure out exactly where everyone stood,” said Team Duck Tape driver Michael Beard. “We figured I tied with points leader and former track champion Dell Britt. We had a runoff and I got the win light.”

Beard said he did not want to tout the track championship until the official standings were released. Rockingham Dragway released the final standings this week proving Beard is the winner by two points.

Beard is also competing in the points chase at Pageland Dragway, in Pageland, South Carolina. The 16-race series is divided in two halves, as each series qualifies only three drivers from each class for the finals. Beard is the points leader and has qualified for the IHRA Division 2 Summit Team Finals and the Race of Champions which takes place at Alabama International Raceway in Steele, Alabama this September.

“We use K&N Engineering products,” said Beard. “We found a winning, quality combination with K&N. We have used K&N for years and plan to use K&N on all our vehicles throughout the 2007 season.”

In Stock Eliminator, Beard currently sits 5th in IHRA Divison 2 Stock points, only one win away from the points lead.
