TASCA Set for Four Wide Nationals –
Announces Additional Sponsors FireAde & Nitro Fish Apparel
Concord, NC (March 24) – For NHRA fans the 4-Wide Nationals in Concord, NC is a must see race. Nowhere on earth can you see four Fuel Funny Car run side by side at speeds over 300mph! Tasca couldn’t be happier to be returning for his first race of the year at the country’s premier facility. “I’m really looking forward to getting back on the track and I’m thrilled to have Nitro Fish and FireAde on the side of my car. It was great to be back at the race shop last week. We were wrapping the car, the trailers and getting the Hot Rod ready for the race. I even stopped by the track to check out the new racing surface. The team at ZMax Dragway has done an incredible job with the racing surface. If the conditions are right you will see national records fall,” said Tasca.
With the additional sponsors of Nitro Fish and FireAde Tasca has all of the funding he needs to make a run at the winners circle at ZMax speedway. “It takes a lot of funding to field one of these machines and it’s great to have two more sponsors to help out. Kenny Koretsky has been a friend of mine for many years. He has developed a wild apparel line with Nitro Fish and when you’re at the races there is Nitro Fish apparel everywhere. Kenny has helped many racers over the years with funding and I’m proud to be official on the Nitro Fish Team! FireAde is an amazing product. We have sold the product for over a year on our online stores. I met Ron Thames the owner of FireAde through a mutual friend Roy Hill. He gave me a demonstration of his product and I was sold. In my profession fire can be a real problem but knowing the NHRA safari has FireAde on board gives all the drivers a little piece of mind. Time to go racing!!” said Tasca.
The 6th Annual NHRA Four-Wide Nationals will take place at Zmax Dragway in Concord, NC March 27th -29th. Funny Car will qualify at 2PM and 5PM on Friday and Saturday. Final eliminations will begin at 1PM on Sunday.

About Nitro Fish Apparel:
Nitro Fish Apparel is owned and operated by Kenny Koretsky, a Pennsylvania-based businessman and longtime NHRA drag racer. Koretsky has driven both Top Fuel Dragsters as well as Pro Stock in a career that dates back to 1976. He is the only driver to qualify both a Top Fuel Dragster and a Pro Stock Car in the same NHRA national event, a feat he accomplished in Phoenix in 1990. Koretsky, whose other business interests include trucking, land development, and a line of full-service car washes, purchased the Nitro Fish brand in 2004. He has since used the brand to help promote a number of racers including two-time NHRA Funny Car champion Tony Pedregon, two-time Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Matt Smith, 2010 NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle champion LE Tonglet and NHRA Funny Car driver Bob Tasca III among others. Featuring a wide selection of T-shirts, hats, decals, die cast replicas and other memorabilia, the Nitro Fish Apparel line is available at trackside locations during select NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series events or online at www.nitrofish.com.
Tasca Racing: Now headquartered near Charlotte in Concord, N.C., Tasca Racing was founded in 1962 by Legendary Ford dealer Bob Tasca, Sr., of Rhode Island, after he realized the incredible potential of “Win on Sunday, Sell on Monday”. During drag racing’s infancy at age 16, Bob Sr. started his first job at a Ford dealership. He later opened his own Ford dealership at age 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 now of the NewAutoParts.com Shelby Mustang Nitro Funny Car. When Bob III is not involved with his race team, he 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. – See more at: www.tascaracing.com
