On Wednesday evening he competed with the USCS Open Wheel Modifieds at Crowley's Ridge Raceway (Harrisburg, Arkansas) in an event that drew 36 entries to the 1/4 mile oval in pursuit of the $1,000 top prize.

Despite starting on the tail of the field he would race into the top ten before a flat tire late in the event relegated him to a 22nd place finish.

Saturday night found the team resuming action with the COMP Cams Super Dirt Series (CCSDS) Super Late Models with a trip to Greenville Speedway (Greenville, Mississippi). Eighteen entries were on hand for the race, and after finishing second in his heat race Beard started fourth in the feature.

Twenty-four Super Late Models were on hand for the $2,000-to-win program, and a seventh to second performance in his heat race locked him into the pole position for the 35 lap finale with Ross Camponovo joining him on the front row.

Due to his heat race struggles he started fourteenth on the grid for the second b-main. He would mount a great charge forward to a sixth place finish in the b-main, which left him three spots short of a transfer to the feature as his afternoon came to an early end.

November 17th, 2012 - Saturday evening was a great outing for Kyle Beard and Upton Motorsports as he piloted his entry to the win in the Turkey Bowl VI at Springfield Raceway (Springfield, Missouri)!

The event began on a strange note as in an effort to curb debate over spoiler size, track officials allowed defending race winner, Jack Sullivan, to make a call on whether or not the cars would run spoilers at all. Sullivan made the decision to race without spoilers so all cars had their spoilers removed for the program.

Twenty-one Super Late Models registered for battle, and via his heat race performance Kyle earned the outside-front-row starting spot alongside Justin Wells for the $2,500-to-win finale. As the feature went green Beard assumed the second spot and would fall as far back as the third spot. However, he quickly raced back to the second spot, and on lap 15, when the leader, Wells, jumped the cushion, Kyle took advantage and claimed the lead. His path to victory would be far from easy though as contact with a lap car three laps later almost eliminated Beard. Luckily he was able to keep rolling and maintained the lead. Kyle went on to fend off a late-race charge from soon to be father-in-law, Terry Phillips to score the victory. Phillips, Justin Wells, Jack Sullivan, and Matt Johnson rounded out the top five at the checkered flag. The victory was the second of the season for Beard.
