TASCA RACING TO COMPETE IN THE NHRA FOUR-WIDE NATIONALS
Bob Tasca III and his AutoAlert Ford Shelby Mustang will be representing Tasca Racing in the NHRA Four-Wide Nationals in Concord, NC from April 28-30 as part of the 2017 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
“It takes a lot of funding to field one of the Fuel Funny Cars. I couldn’t do it without all my key primary and associate sponsors. I’m excited to have all of my sponsors back for the 2017 season along with expanding my program to at least seven races this season.”
Tasca and AutoAlert are teaming up for two races in 2017. Bob is enthusiastic about the expanding partnership with the company, “We have a great partnership with AutoAlert. Their AlertMiner and One-to-One Intelligent Marketing has helped us grow our dealership business and, this year, we’ll be growing our motorsport’s program with them to two races. AutoAlert sponsored me last year in Chicago and they were blown away with the event. It’s great to be able to represent AutoAlert at two races this year: the Four-Wide event this month and Maple Grove in the fall.”
Bob and Tasca Racing are focused on picking up where they left off. “Last year was a great part-time season for our team. Nearly every run I made was a career best. We’ve been working hard this off-season to take our program to the next level, including making numerous enhancements to the race car. It took us a few runs in Gainesville to get everything dialed in, but Sunday morning we ran a strong run at 3.96 at 321mph! I have no doubt our team will be a contender whenever we enter a race!”
Tasca Racing is scheduled to compete in at least seven 2017 NHRA events. Primary sponsors for the seven races are AutoAlert (two races), TascaParts.com (three races), PPG (one race), and Gary Crossley Ford (one race). Other key associate sponsors this season include BG, Nitro Fish, and Ameraguard.
AutoAlert CEO Mike Dullea commented, “We’re proud to sponsor a great racing team that has such a rich family heritage, a history of focusing on performance, and that shines a positive light on the automotive industry as a whole. Beginning with Bob Tasca, Sr., who successfully ran the family Ford business and went on to found Tasca racing, the history of this team is steeped in dedication to family, customers, and fans.”
