The 1988 Indy Lights champion, he drove in 9 CART races in 1990 and a handful more in 1989, 1991, and 1992. His best finish was an 8th at Michigan International Speedway. He later became a pit reporter for first ESPN's and then Speed Channel/CBS's coverage of CART & Champ Car races.

Beekhuis moved to the booth as Champ Car television's lead analyst in 2007. In 2008 he was the pit reporter for select IndyCar Series races in Edmonton and Surfer's Paradise.

Since 2009, he has worked in varying capacities for NBC Sports Network's (formerly Versus) broadcast of the IndyCar Series, currently serving as a pit reporter alongside Robin Miller, Kevin Lee, and Kelli Stavast.

In 2015, ESPN announced that Beekhuis would return to work for ESPN & ABC and their coverage of five IndyCar races, including the Indianapolis 500.
