Luke Beberia was on the methanol hard at the California Rebel Cup season opener last weekend at Hanford. His duel in traffic with Tommy Tarlton was exciting in every sense of the word, with sliders being traded between the two Central Valley cats. Tarlton was victim of a slower car in traffic, knocking him to the back of the pack for the closing laps. Beberia won the 30 lapper.
So who is Luke Beberia? He's the same guy that won five Rebel features in 2000, and two A-Mains in 2001. And, he's the guy that looked to be every bit the masher, on Saturday night, as anyone we've seen recently. His rim-riding style, and instinctive moves in traffic were good stuff, indeed. Maybe you don't know Beberia too well yet but you soon will.
