JackBeckman020913NHRA's Jack Beckman may have spent a fair proportion of his $100000 prize purse in winning the 2013 Traxxas Shootout at Indy before he had his Dodge Funny Car stopped.



A spectacular concussive explosion tore the body in half as Beckman reached the finish stripe in the Traxxas Shootout final held during qualifying of the US Nationals at Indianapolis Raceway. Beckman nailed Cruz Pedregon with a holeshot and held the advantage to the line before all hell broke loose.


Beckman was unhurt and by the looks the car was not running the controversial body tethers that caused so much drama for Johnny Gray recently.
