Cranston, RI (June 6, 2018) – Tasca Racing is bringing Bob Tasca III and his 10,000-horsepower TascaParts.com Ford Shelby Mustang to Richmond, looking for a major win at the NHRA Virginia Nationals. The event runs June 8–10 as part of the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
TascaParts.com is sponsoring the Tasca Funny Car for the first time this season. “Last year our online parts division picked up the sponsorship for the Englishtown event and when the race became available this year at Richmond we jumped at the chance to do it again. I like to tell people we are the OEM version of Jegs. We sell original factory replacement parts online at an affordable price and with really fast shipping. TascaParts.com offers factory parts for Ford vehicles along with many other brands. TascaParts.com has quickly become one of the largest OEM sellers globally.”
Tasca Racing keeps improving, and Tasca is excited about getting to Virginia. “I have some great memories in Richmond. Many people don’t know but that is the home of my very first win in NHRA competition. I won the Alcohol Funny Car Divisional race back in 2006. I’ll never forget that feeling and the desire to keep on winning. That’s exactly what our plan is going into this weekend. We have gotten stronger and stronger over these last couple of races and my team is poised to pick up our first win. It would be very special to do in our Tascaparts.com Ford Mustang!”
Coming off a Semi Final finish at Chicago, Tasca is only 12 points out of the top 10. “We have had our struggles starting out this season, but most people don’t realize that we only had 6 weeks to pull this program together. Considering we have a brand new team, totally new setup and 6 weeks to make it happen I’m not disappointed only being 12 points out of the top ten this early in the season. However, trust me, this team wants and expects much more! I had a goal to come out of the east coast swing solidly in the top ten and we are in a great position to do just that! I can’t wait to race this weekend and promote my family’s online parts business – Tascaparts.com makes it easy for consumers to purchase factory OEM parts at a deep discount and with fast shipping!”
