Concord, NC (February 27, 2017) – Bob Tasca III and Tasca Racing have announced their 2017 NHRA schedule. To start the scheduled seven-race season, Bob will be competing at the NHRA Gatornationals from March 16-19 in Gainesville, FL with his TascaParts.com Ford Shelby Mustang. Tasca Racing is excited to be bringing back all of its sponsors for the 2017 season and expanding its program to seven NHRA National events.

“I’m thrilled to be going back to Gainesville, “ said Bob, “I have so many great memories there; from my Alcohol Funny Car day when we qualified #1 with (at the time) the quickest pass in the history of Alcohol Funny Cars at 5.451 to my first Fuel Funny Car win in 2009.

“It takes a lot of funding to field one of the Fuel Funny Cars. I couldn’t do it without all my key primary and associate sponsors. I excited to have all of my sponsors back for the 2017 season along with expanding my program to at least seven races this season!”

Bob and Tasca Racing are focused on picking up where they left off in 2016, “Last year was a great part-time season for our team. Nearly every run I made was a career best. We’ve been working hard this off-season to take our program to the next level, including making numerous enhancements to the race car. I have no doubt our team will be a contender whenever we enter a race!”

Tasca Racing is scheduled to compete in at least seven 2017 NHRA events. Primary sponsors for the seven races are AutoAlert (two races), TascaParts.com (three races), PPG (one race), and Gary Crossley Ford (one race). Other key associate sponsors this season include BG, Nitro Fish, and Ameraguard.
