Beard knocked off Super Stock racer Bob Earnhardt in the semifinals of the Stock/Super Stock Combo and went on to win the title over Jamie Southards. Beard took the holeshot with a .014 reaction time and a 7.203 on a 7.19 dial-in.

In the Mickey Thomson Ironman event Beard advanced to the final round, but his opponent won by getting the holeshot in his Vega. “I wish I won that one, but our string has been great,” said Beard. “I won the last two points races at Pageland, doubled up at Jackson and was in the gambler’s race at the Bracket Finals when they called it off. After two finals in one night at Pageland I hope I have enough luck left to get the final round we need at Rockingham for the World Championship.”

Beard uses K&N Engineering Products. “We found a winning, quality combination with K&N,” he said. “We used K&N throughout the years. My cars run flawlessly.”

This weekend, Beard will compete in two more Stock/Super Stock Combos, including Roxboro Motorsports Dragway in North Carolina. Beard is the defending champion at Roxboro’s Stock/Super Stock Ironman Classic and remains undefeated there.
