The President of the Company is Ed Beckley. Beckley was featured on the cover of Fortune Small Business Magazine with a huge 5 page pictorial and story of his endeavors and has worked with some of the most well-known promoters in the world.
Ed Beckley has written many safety rules for many different types of motorsports events and is a safety consultant for K&K Insurance. Ed has been involved in Motorsports for over 30 years.
He first became involved in promotion by being a Motorcycle Stuntman and gained National Publicity with him being the WORLD’S LARGEST MOTORCYCLE JUMPER. Ed weighed over 300 pounds and the motorcycles he jumped he outweighed. When Ed decided to improve the show, he added a passenger on the motorcycle which included a Hollywood Stuntwoman and Actress the lovely Vicki Swims. A webpage: www.cyclejumpers.com/biged.html briefly tells about his stunt career.
For nearly 15 years Ed traveled around performing at race tracks and drag strips all over the United States. His exploits put him on National TV with first REAL PEOPLE, then NBC NATIONAL NEWS, CBS Wide World of Sports, JAY LENO SHOW, and most recently with FOX TV Special on WORLD’S GREATEST STUNTMEN, STUNTS GONE BAD and he has also been featured in many videos on the market.
Ed worked side by side with the originator of indoor motorsports the late, great Bob George the owner of SRO/PACE MOTORSPORTS.
Bob and Ed had a special relationship and thru Bob he learned many things about promoting events. When Bob died in 1987 Ed was a pall bearer and then it was time for the next step and that step was to promote indoor events and that is when Checkered Flag Productions started doing Monster Truck events and became one of the top Monster Truck promoters in the World.
Checkered Flag Productions Monster Trucks started with about 17 events nights a year and soon has raised to nearly 90 event nights a year.
CFP’s mission is to put on a Safe, Exciting, Enjoyable, Family Show, or a SEEF Show as Ed calls it, only he pronounces it safe.
CFP business day is mostly made up of total production of ticketed Motorsports events and they have also done concerts and rodeos.
CFP Advertising is an in-house Advertising Agency that has also done work for several other clients including motorcycle shops, movie theaters, and other promotion companies.
CFP has its own art department with graphic arts and also writes and produces their own television commercials.
Video is for sale as CFP will license any of its footage to be used by outside sources and we would be glad to discuss it with your representative.
CFP has done business with many top venues and State Fairs in the United States and Canada.
Checkered Flag Productions also operated the Dodge City Raceway Park a 7.2 million dollar dirt race track with a 3 year management contract. The second year of running the track Ed was awarded the 2009 WORLD OF OUTLAW SPRINT CAR Promoter of the Year, plus the track was awarded WORLD OF OUTLAW TRACK OF THE YEAR. Many time WOO CHAMPION Steve Kinser called him the “Magic Man” because of his track preparation and his ability to get the show in when weather was at its worst. 2010 was the end of the 3 year contract and Ed had already decided to move back to Texas full time and dedicate his full time to CFP.
Currently Checkered Flag is doing a list of events that are dates they have been going to for many years including CASPER, WYOMING (25TH Year) – BILLINGS, MONTANA (22nd Year) – SALISBURY, MARYLAND (23rd Year) – ARDMORE, OKLAHOMA (25th Year) – POCATELLO (17th Year) – MONROE, LA 11th Year) and many more we have been doing for multiple years.
