Jack Beckman racing for second place in NHRA standings

Jack Beckman came into the NHRA races at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona with a mathematical shot at winning the funny car championship. He is in fourth place and would need a lot of help to leap frog his way to the top of the funny car standings.
He said realistically, he is racing for second place. The driver from Norco was the eighth fastest qualifier after Fridays session. John Force was the top qualifier, followed by Robert Hight, the leader in the funny car standings.
Beckman, a driver for Don Schumacher Racing, said he has a car that can win the season finale at Pomona, but he is concentrating on staying ahead of Ashley Force Hood and Tony Pedregon, the two drivers ahead of him in the funny car standings.
