Jack Beckman has many fond NHRA Winternationals memories

Jack Beckman said picking a favorite moment from the National Hot Rod Assn. Winternationals is like having six kids and trying to pick a favorite.
In 1975, Beckman attended his first NHRA Winternationals at Auto Club Raceway in Pomona.
In 1984, he went to the Winternationals just before heading to the U.S. Air Force.
In 1988, he drove from New Mexico to Pomona, an 1,100-mile trek, to watch the elimination rounds of the Winternationals.
In 1998, he won his first national event, a super comp race.
He said he hopes he can add a win in NHRA funny cars in the 2010 Winternationals.
Beckman, who drives for Don Schumacher Racing, had two wins and finished fifth in the funny car standings in 2009.
