Ford vs. Ford in Round 1 as Bob Tasca III Takes on Robert Hight in Sonoma

SONOMA, Ca., July 28, 2012–Bob Tasca III and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car team will take on Ford teammate Robert Hight in round one in Sonoma after qualifying P8 with a 4.087-second pass at 309.98 mph.

Most of the field qualified on their times from Friday’s record-breaking evening session. Hight, the team’s Blue Oval teammate, leads the NHRA Full Throttle Series point standings.

“I can’t wait to race tomorrow,” Tasca said. “We have one of the most consistent cars on the property. That’s what wins races.”

Besides the 4.087 he clocked during Friday evening’s stellar session and ultimately qualified on, Tasca turned in 4.153, 4.161 and 4.152 – the consistent results the team has been working toward.
