2014 NHRA: Jack Beckman Mopar Mile-High Nationals Qualifying Report: No. 11

He has a lot on his mind as a world championship Funny Car driver who is fighting to remain in the top-10 to qualify for the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series six-race Countdown to the Championship so he has a chance to win the prestigious prize for the second time in three seasons.

While Jack was focused on getting his Dodge Charger R/T to the finish line during qualifying Saturday, there was nothing he or any of his competitors could have done to match the accomplishments of guests this weekend.

"I'm not going to talk about qualifying runs, tune-ups or the racetrack," he said Saturday evening. "I'm going to talk about Infinite Hero Foundation and the heroes we have out here with us this weekend.

"Army Sgt. Neil Duncan is here with us. He lost both of his legs in war and then decided to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to show it can be done. He's an inspiration not just to all amputees but to all of us. To have him here is unbelievable.

"And Chief Warrant Officer Gary Linfoot and his wife Mary are here with their son. Gary was paralyzed when his helicopter crashed and thanks to the Infinite Hero program he is the first military hero to receive an Ekso suit for personal use.

"All of this was under the Infinite Hero umbrella this weekend. I am so proud to be around this group of people. Driving a Funny Car is icing on the cake ... whatever happens, happens. But winning with those colors on our Dodge Charger R/T would be hard to ever match."

No. 1 Qualifier: John Force (John Force Racing) 4.049 sec., 318.39 mph (track records)

JACK BECKMAN, Infinite Hero Foundation/Valvoline Dodge Charger R/T
Qualifying Position: No. 11
First round: BECKMAN vs. Tommy Johnson Jr.
FRIDAY: 4.224 sec., 298. 47 mph, (Session 1); 4.153, 304.32, (Session 2)
SATURDAY: 4.227, 229.26, (Session 3); 4.719, 179.23, (Session 4)
