The Mail Terminal Services Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car that Jack
Beckman races for Don Schumacher Racing in the 2007 NHRA POWERade Drag
Racing Series will sport a red-white-and-blue Valvoline paint scheme at
this weekend's CSK NHRA Nationals at Firebird Raceway.
Beckman, who established national elapsed-time and speed records at the
season finale in Pomona, Calif., in 2006, in only his fifth Funny Car
event, will debut the Valvoline/MTS Dodge Charger R/T Funny Car in the
first of four venues at which a Valvoline-themed DSR car will compete
this season. DSR will also run a special Valvoline-themed car at
Bristol (Tenn.), Dallas and Richmond (Va.).
"I love the looks of the Valvoline/MTS Dodge," said Beckman, of North
Hills, Calif. "It's really cool. The crew guys call it the Captain
America car, because it definitely has a patriotic theme. Our primary
sponsor MTS (Mail Terminal Services) is very large on the side of the
car, and it looks great."
