Duck Tape Racing Extends IHRA Win Streak to Four

Duck Tape Racing has continued on an incredible streak since winning the IHRA Tournament of Champions on April 30, followed up by the Spring Nitro Jam win (to be televised on SPEED Channel, June 6 at 4p.m. ET). This weekend, driver Michael Beard made the long trek to Montgomery Motorsports Park in Montgomery, AL for the IHRA Div. 2 Summit Pro-Am Tour double-header. The two races were compacted into a single day, and the Duck Tape Volare emerged victorious in Stock Eliminator not once, but twice. The back-to-back victories vaulted Beard into a commanding points lead in IHRA Div. 2 Stock. His IHRA winning streak now stands at four straight events. Magazine coverage will be forthcoming in Drag Review Magazine in the coming weeks, both in print and online at

On May 16, the Duck Tape Volare received some more TV time as part of the Inside Drag Racing coverage of the K&N Spring Fling 20's at Bristol Dragway, which aired on Fox Sports Net. The show is also available on YouTube. You can view the first segment, which contains a closeup of the Volare in the pits (at :50 sec in the video) as well as one of the elimination runs (at 2:06 in the video) at
