Ford Customer Service Division Launches New Service Parts Warranty; Message to be Featured on Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car in Pomona

POMONA, Calif., Nov. 6, 2013—Ford Customer Service Division announced a new service parts warranty on its Genuine Ford and Motorcraft service parts this week, and the news will be front-and-center on Bob Tasca’s Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona, Calif.

The new warranty provides unlimited mileage coverage for 24 months from time of purchase or installation.

“Motorcraft is not only a part of my race team, but a big part of my parts business back at the dealership,” said Tasca, who will wrap up his sixth year behind the wheel of his Funny Car at the Auto Club Finals at Pomona.  “From an NHRA fan’s garage to the professional parts installer’s shop, the new Motorcraft warranty is a big win. I can’t wait to get out there and spread the word.”

The 2013 NHRA Mello Yello Series season ends this weekend where it began in Southern California.

Ford’s part warranty provides customers towing reimbursement for repairs completed at any Ford or Lincoln Dealership. The warranty also provides Independent Repair Facilities the ability to complete repairs for customers by securing parts from a dealership or Ford Authorized Distributor. All customers benefit with more options on how they can have their vehicles serviced.

Ford’s previous service parts warranty was 12 months or 12,000 miles, whichever occurred first, and labor was covered if the part was installed by a Ford or Lincoln dealership. Labor was not covered on parts sold over-the-counter to a fleet or installer.

Watch ESPN2 for qualifying and race day coverage on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013. Qualifying begins at 2 p.m. ET, with race coverage starting at 7 p.m. ET.

Tasca Racing
Now headquartered near Charlotte in Concord, N.C., Tasca Racing was founded by legendary Ford dealer Bob Tasca Sr. in Rhode Island in 1962, after he realized the incredible potential of “Race on Sunday, Sell on Monday” during drag racing’s infancy. At 16 years old, Bob Sr. started his first job at a Ford dealership. He opened his own Ford dealership at 27. Seventy years later Tasca Ford still exists, run by the second and third generations of the Tasca family. Bob Tasca III, grandson of Bob Sr., has led the racing branch of the family since 2008 as driver of the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car. When he’s not involved with his race team, Bob III works at the family dealership. The Tasca family is proud to say more than 50 years after Tasca Racing was founded, the phrase “Win on Sunday Sell on Monday” is alive and well within the Tasca team.
