How about side-by-side track-record runs in Las Vegas! Jack Beckman grabs the E.T. mark for The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway while Courtney Force resets the speed record with her 326.08-mph pass in the other lane. Force's E.T. is 3.928, and that puts her second in the order behind Beckman at the Denso Spark Plugs NHRA Nationals.
"It's nice to come back from a struggling run. First run, I think we were trying to rotate Las Vegas over to the Pacific Ocean, and the track didn't hold it," said Beckman, who smoked the tires in Q1. "I don't know if that will hold. We have all day tomorrow, but now we know we have a hot rod with this Mopar."
With this track-record pass, Beckman's Infinite Hero team now has 12 total track records, eight for e.t. and four for speed.
