Bob Tasca III, Motorcraft/Quick Lane Team Take on Cruz Pedregon in Round 1 at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

LAS VEGAS, Oct. 27, 2012–Bob Tasca III drove his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car to a 4.136-second pass at 305.15 mph to qualify 16th in the ultra-competitive NHRA Full Throttle Series Funny Car category at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

He’ll take on No. 1-qualifier Cruz Pedregon in Round 1. Two races remain on the 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Series schedule. Tasca was the runner-up at this track last spring.

“We struggled to get this Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford through qualifying, but sometimes Las Vegas loves the underdog,” Tasca said. “In a class this deep, you have to fight every weekend to qualify and race and we all take our turn as the underdog. We’re looking forward to the first round.”
