TASCA AND THE MOTORCRAFT/QUICK LANE RACING HOPE TO TOAST WITH WALLY IN WINE COUNTRY

Set among the rolling hills of vineyards, once a year the delightful aroma of the vineyards is replaced with the powerful and intoxicating nitro methane. It must be time for NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing in Sonoma.

A connoisseur of all things Ford, Motorcraft, Quick Lane and racing, Bob Tasca III and the team seek to uncork their special vintage this week in the final race of the West Coast Swing.

With two round wins on this three-race run, Tasca looks for to capture four more round wins in Somona.

"Our goal for the West Coast Swing was to improve on our performance from last year and we've done that," said Tasca. "Our mission is to get at least one trophy out of this West Coast Swing."

The weather in Sonoma will be key to Tasca's success. Crew chief Chris Cunningham and Tasca know a few things about racing in the heat, both on the race track and in the points.

"You typically get great conditions to perform in at Sonoma if you know how to manage the track," said Tasca. "We'll see some of the hottest track conditions of the year this weekend. Our Motorcraft/Quick Lane Shelby Mustang runs pretty incredible in the heat and we have a great shot for a win this weekend."

Confidence plays a key role in the success of Tasca and the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Mustang team. With four races remaining before the Countdown to 1, Tasca knows this is the critical segment of the season.

"We're a team that believes that we can win. We've won, been to multiple semi-finals and finals," said Tasca. "We know we have the equipment and the tools to get the job done. We believe if we get up to the plate enough times, we're going to get our next win. This Motorcraft/Quick Lane team believes that we can compete for this championship."

But at the end of the day, Tasca likes his wine just like his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Mustang -- smooth, powerful and red.
