San Diego-based Beal Racing campaigns a 300+ mph, 11,000 horsepower top fuel dragster on the NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series. The team switched from nitro funny car to the top fuel dragster class to begin the 2019 season. Beal Racing was founded by Chuck Beal in 1962, and is now operated by Beal’s grandsons, Brandon Welch and Tyson Porlas. Beal Racing is sure to be a focus of media and fan attention with driver Brandon Welch extending the storied family racing legacy from funny car to top fuel for the first time in 2019.
