Jack Beckman NHRA Challenge Coin
“Fast Jack” Beckman has reached the pinnacle of the sport of NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing, winning championships in both the professional and sportsman ranks. Nevertheless, his current mission of raising awareness and funds for the Infinite Hero Foundation might be the most rewarding of his trackside achievements.
Since the Infinite Hero Foundation Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car hit the track at the sixth event of the season near Houston in April 2014, Beckman has been the pitchman for educating the NHRA community on the foundation and cultivating funds via the sale of Infinite Hero challenge coins. The entire program is made possible due to the generous support of Terry Chandler, who also runs a team for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Neither charity spends any money to sponsor the cars or teams.
The new 2017 Infinite Hero Foundation challenge coins made their debut in Pomona (Feb 2017). Beckman carries several in his Don Schumacher Racing Funny Car on each lap down the track. Jack and his wife Jenna designed the special NHRA commemorative coin. He then signs the coins with the track location and speed of the pass. The coins are available for purchase trackside at Beckman’s IHF pit area or at the Oakley trailer for a $100 donation to Infinite Hero Foundation or if you make $100 or more donation online and email your receipt and shipping address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Beckman, Oakley and DSR are now making a limited number of coins available to fans who cannot attend an NHRA Mello Yello Series event. Beckman will personally sign and number five coins that made a lap from each of the events on the 2017 NHRA schedule. Those coins, along with an Infinite Hero Foundation shirt, will also be available for purchase on DSR’s ebay store.
