TASCA AND MOTORCRAFT/QUICK LANE RACING TEAM LOOKING TO MAKE AND CHANGE HISTORY IN POMONA
DEARBORN, MI -- November 9, 2009 -- Heading into the final race of the 2009 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing season, Bob Tasca III and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team seek to end their season on a high note and capture their third career win.
"Heading into Pomona, it's where it all starts and it's where it all ends," said Tasca. "I told my guys that to make this season just perfect I only want one more win."
In both February Pomona races, Tasca has advanced to the second round. Last season in November, Tasca was eliminated in round one, so Tasca and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team are looking to going several rounds at the historic track.
"From the historical value of it, Pomona is clearly one of the tracks that you look forward to going to," said Tasca. "It certainly isn't the longest race track on the circuit, so stopping becomes even more important. Pomona is nostalgic; it's where it all started with Wally Parks. Winning and ending the season on a win is all we're focused on this weekend. We have a little unfinished business in Pomona and we look forward to closing the season out with a win."
After Las Vegas, Tasca and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing team's chances of the 2009 championship ended with a first round loss. Despite not competing for the championship in the final race, Tasca is proud of the team's accomplishments this season.
"Our championship hopes may have expired, but I'm thrilled with what we've accomplished in our second year," said Tasca. "I'm so proud of all the hard work that Chris Cunningham, Marc Denner and the guys have done with this Shelby Mustang to put our team in a position to win."
