Duck Tape Racing competes in several racing series and often faces scheduling conflicts. On Father’s Day weekend, Michael Beard had two options. He could chase Summit Super Series points at Pageland Dragway, in Pageland, South Carolina, or compete in a two day IHRA Summit Pro-Am Tour Stock eliminator event in Kinston, North Carolina.
On Sunday, Beard raced at Kinston without a qualifying run and was placed in the bottom of the pack. His first round opponent red-lighted and he advanced six rounds to face off Division 9 points leader Scott Macy in the finals. “I broke out by just .002 seconds and had to settle for runner-up,” said Beard. “I’ve jumped to 7th place in Stock eliminator.”
Beard uses K&N Engineering products. “K&N filters are not just for race cars,” he said. “Towing is hard on vehicles, too. I use the same K&N oil filters on my daily driver and tow vehicles as I do on the race cars. It’s piece of mind, because I have premium protection for everything I drive. While changing the oil on my tow vehicle, I discovered that I had misplaced my oil filter wrench. With K&N oil filters, that’s not a problem. The filters incorporate a nut on the top, which makes removing filters easy with a standard wrench. K&N means convenience, protection and performance.”
Beard’s national event schedule starts this weekend at Tulsa, Oklahoma.
