For Former Funny Car World Champion Jack Beckman It Was Love At First Sight For Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals At Bandimere Speedway

For Former Funny Car World Champion Jack Beckman It Was Love At First Sight For Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals At Bandimere Speedway


MORRISON, Colo. – The first time Jack Beckman went to the Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals at Bandimere Speedway, he was a wide-eyed teenager and fan who simply wanted to take as many pictures and get as many autographs as he could.

More than 30 years later, it’s come full circle for Beckman. The former Funny Car world champion is a three-time winner at the scenic facility and the event remains one of Beckman’s favorite races on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series tour. Returning for this weekend’s 38th annual Mopar Mile-High Nationals in his 10,000-horsepower Infinite Hero Foundation Dodge Charger R/T, Beckman talked about why he’s always loved Bandimere Speedway, despite its unique challenges.

“It’s a bucket list race for the fans and I tell everybody that you have to go at least once,” Beckman said. “Everything about it is hyper-unique. It’s a family-owned track, it has great history and history for me, personally. It’s literally carved into the side of a mountain and it’s just completely unique.”

Top Fuel Points Leader Steve Torrence Banking On Recent Success At Mopar Mile-High NHRA Nationals To Keep Hot Streak Going


Already on an impressive stretch in his 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season, Top Fuel points leader Steve Torrence believes he can continue that momentum at one of the most difficult tracks on the circuit to navigate, Bandimere Speedway.

It plays host to this weekend’s 38th annual Mopar Mile-High Nationals and racing at an altitude of more than 5,800 feet is never easy. But Torrence and his team have found something that works on the mountain in his 10,000-horsepower Capco Contractors dragster, qualifying No. 1 a year ago and winning the race in 2015. With that success in mind and posting five wins in the last eight races, Torrence has no plans of slowing down to kick off the NHRA’s famed Western Swing.

“Three or four years ago, (co-crew chief) Richard Hogan really hit the nail on the head there and we’ve been able to do that consistently,” Torrence said. “It gives you a big boost of confidence and we know what it takes to do well there. We just have to go do it. The biggest thing is I hope we maintain the consistency we’ve have this year, and maintain going rounds and doing well. It’s been a lot of hard work, but the guys have kept their focus and kept on target. At this point momentum is on our side, and we go into Denver having done well and run well there.”

Early Season Success Puts Pro Stock Motorcycle Standout Le Tonglet Ahead Of Schedule Heading To Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals

Early Season Success Puts Pro Stock Motorcycle Standout Le Tonglet Ahead Of Schedule Heading To Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals


NORWALK, Ohio – LE Tonglet knew that teaming up with reigning Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Jerry Savoie would pay off at some point during the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season. But the 2010 world champ didn’t expect it would come quite this quick.

Tonglet won back-to-back races on his Nitro Fish Racing Suzuki earlier this season and watched Savoie win the most recent PSM race in Englishtown, meaning the team has won three of the four races in the class. It’s an impressive start and one Tonglet hopes to keep going at this weekend’s Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.

“I knew we could win races and be very fast, but I didn’t think it would happen this early,” said Tonglet, who has 12 career wins. “I thought about midway through the season is where we would start doing well. For it to come this early it’s awesome. It builds a lot of confidence on the team. I’ve been extremely satisfied and the whole team is just doing a great job.”

Shawn Langdon (Top Fuel), Ron Capps (Funny Car), Jason Line (Pro Stock) and Eddie Krawiec (Pro Stock Motorcycle) were last year’s winners of the event that will be televised on FOX Sports 1, including final eliminations coverage starting at 6:00 p.m. (ET) on Sunday, June 25. It is the fifth of 16 races during the 2017 Pro Stock Motorcycle season and Tonglet has positioned himself for a run at a second career world championship.

Racing At Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals Brings Out The Best In Three-Time Pro Stock World Champ Jason Line

Racing At Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals Brings Out The Best In Three-Time Pro Stock World Champ Jason Line


Racing at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park during the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals, it would be almost impossible for Pro Stock standout Jason Line to miss his sponsor’s presence at this weekend’s race.

While it puts extra attention on Line and his Summit Racing Equipment Chevrolet Camaro, that extra pressure often seems to bring out the best in the three-time world champion at his sponsor’s races. The defending event winner of the race in Norwalk, Line hopes for another boost this weekend as the Pro Stock veteran looks to recreate the magic that led to a win at the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series season opener.

"We've always enjoyed the Summit Racing events,” said Line, a two-time winner in Norwalk. “They're a lot of fun, and we look forward to spending time with all the folks from Summit. The Bader family knows how to put on a heck of a show, and it's always a great weekend coming to his racetrack. This is Summit Racing's home race, and we have a good time here, but the bottom line is that we want to put a Summit Racing Chevy Camaro in the winner's circle. That's the best way to show them our gratitude, and you can bet we'll be doing our best to make that happen."

Coughlin Wins NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series Event At NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals


BRISTOL, Tenn. – Troy Coughlin powered to the NHRA J&A Service Pro Mod Drag Racing Series victory Sunday at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals at Bristol Dragway. This weekend’s Pro Mod racing, presented by the Real Pro Mod Association, was the seventh of 12 events on the 2017 schedule.

Coughlin ran a 5.878-second pass at 253.09 mph in his JEGS Mail Order '15 Corvette to defeat No. 1 qualifier Shane Molinari and his S&T Truck Repair Inc. '68 Firebird’s 5.881 at 254.76 for his first win of the season.

“What can I say about those guys Steve Petty, Kyle, Mike, the Jegs.com team and everybody at Mac Tools - they’re a badass group of people,” Coughlin said. “We’ve had a fantastic car for the last race or so. We struggled a little bit in the middle part of the first half of the season, but it’s definitely coming around."
