NHRA Mello Yello Funny Car points leader Jack Beckman is a favorite of The Freaks. His candor always makes a great conversation. Beckman won the championship in 2012 and obviously wants another title run in 2015 as the NHRA Countdown to the Championship begins in Charlotte next weekend. That’s the first of six NHRA Mello Yello rounds to the championship that ends in Pomona November 12-15. Beckman opens our eyes on a championship effort.
