SEATTLE, Washington (August 1, 2018) – Bob Tasca III announced today that he has joined forces with LINE-X for the remainder of the 2018 NHRA Mello Yello Season and all of 2019.
LINE-X is a worldwide leader in extreme protective coatings, renowned spray-on bedliners and top-shelf truck accessories. “I’m thrilled to welcome Tasca Racing as both a partner and, even more exciting, as a new franchisee. This unique partnership teams LINE-X’s renowned protective coatings and truck accessories with one of NHRA’s oldest and most respected race teams. We look forward to further elevating the LINE-X brand in the region and across the NHRA family with this formidable team.”
In addition to the sponsorship, Tasca will also join the LINE-X family as one of the newest franchise owners and will soon open his own LINE-X location at Tasca Collision Center in Cranston, R.I.
“I’m thrilled to join the LINE-X family of franchises and have LINE-X join our team as an associate sponsor. Knowing the NHRA fan base and their passion to drive pickup trucks, I knew LINE-X would be a perfect fit,” said Tasca. “I’m looking forward to working with LINE-X and promoting the brand within the sport of NHRA drag racing.”
Tasca will be back in his Motorcraft Ford Mustang in Seattle along with LINE-X featured on the car as well. The last race of the western swing will be at the CatSpot NHRA Northwest Nationals in Kent, Washington. “Our team ran strong in Sonoma. We ran at the top of the page every qualifying run! We had a big first round win and we pressed a little too much in the second round. Fortunately, we were able to pad our points leads and closed in on the number 9 spot. Seattle should be very similar conditions to Sonoma so we intend to pick up right where we left off,” said Tasca.
Qualifying for the 2018 CatSpot NHRA Northwest Nationals will feature two rounds of qualifying Friday, August 3, at 4 and 6 p.m. The final two rounds of qualifying will be Saturday, August 4, at 2 and 4:30 p.m. Final eliminations are scheduled for August 5, at 11 a.m.
