This is a shame.

These two are both great friends of mine and they will be truly missed. All thing in drag racing do not last for ever, I should know. Both are hall of fame quality drivers.

Indeed. Both of them are fan favorites and class drivers. Off topic, glad to see you're doing well Larry. I'm an old Infield Fire & Rescue member from the early 70's.

A shame, but not unexpected. TJ's whole crew has been with Cruz Pedregon for a couple of months now. Fast Jack's crew chiefs are now with Capps.

I would just like to say thanks to the Chandler family again, for keeping 2 cars on the tour full time, but more importantly, for everything they did for Veterans and the Make A Wish kids during that time. The "giving cars" will be missed in many ways beyond car counts.

I remember Infield very well. You guys did a great job in sometimes crazy incidents, like fires, crashes, even people in the stands getting hurt. 2 thumbs up!

This will be a rebuilding year for sure. Across the board, there's been downsizing but there's a lot to be optimistic about.
Camping World / Marcus Lemonis coming on board will open up new opportunities and promote confidence in the NHRA series.
Lemonis even mentioned in an interview that he'd love to do a sponsorship summit.
Beckman and TJ are both great ambassadors for the sport, articulate and know how to get the job done behind a mic too.

There should have been some forethought, 10 years ago when 3 guys, now in there mid seventies, operated 16 0f the 32 starting nitro cars at most of the races. That is not a good scenario, no matter how its stated. A reduction in cost should not have been an option but a necessity, despite the pitfalls it will result in.
