BECKMAN COMMENTS ON FOUR-WIDE RACING IN CONCORD

CONCORD, N.C. (March 26, 2010) - After two qualifying sessions for the Inaugural NHRA Four-Wide Nationals, Jack Beckman, driving the Valvoline/Mail Terminal Services Dodge Funny Car, sits No. 3, having posted a 4.040/310.48 in the second round. His first attempt produced a 4.103/304.25.

"Hoo-wee," he said of racing four-wide for the first time. "For all that we've griped about it, and I'm still not a fan of doing it in a points race, all I have to say is that at the top end of the race track we are all chatting like 12-year-old schoolgirls up there. Everybody is having a blast with this thing.

"It's like bragging about who caught what when you went fishing. Everybody compares notes at the end of the track, and I've never seen that when it's two cars racing, to this extent. We're having fun right now.

"Sunday might be a whole different deal."
