Epping, NH (May 28th) – For NHRA fans in New England this is the race of the year! For Bob Tasca III being an all New England kid this is a race he could not miss! “I’m thrilled to be racing in the New England National event. There are so many Tasca / Ford fans in New England my family did not want to let them down. I have so many great memories racing in Epping my goal is to make a few more,” said Tasca!

Tasca is proud to announce PPG as the primary sponsor for the race. “The Tasca Family and the PPG family have been doing business together for over 35 years. PPG was one of my very first sponsors back in my Alcohol Funny Car days. They have also been instrumental in helping us grow our Body Shop business throughout our Automotive Group. We will soon be opening one of the largest collision centers in New England a 35,000 square foot state of the art Collision Center in Cranston, RI. It will be an honor to represent PPG on a National level in my Hot Rod,” said Tasca! Sponsors NewAutoParts.com, Nitro Fish and FireAde will also be back supporting Tasca. “NHRA drag racing offers a great marketing platform for sponsors. I has been great working with Nitro Fish, FireAde and NewAutoParts.com to leverage the best NHRA has to offer,” said Tasca.

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
