THE INSPIRATIONAL JACK BECKMAN

Sometimes, there's more important things to talk about than racing. That was the case on Wednesday night's The Race Reporters. Winning NHRA Funny Car driver Jack Beckman was my Newsmaker guest, but he's much more than driver of the Valvoline/MTS Dodge Charger. He's a survivor of Stage IIIB non-Hodgkins lymphoma. You don't have to be a drag racing fan to want to hear Jack's inspirational story. Alan Reinart and Stan Creekmore joined me for roundtable talk.
