The 2012 NHRA Full Throttle Series concludes with the Auto Club NHRA Finals at Auto Club Raceway at Pomona Nov. 8-11, 2012, and Bob Tasca III is ready to take one last swing before the Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Shelby Mustang Funny Car team formally kicks off 2013.

“For us, it’s about ending on a high note,” Tasca said. “We haven’t had the season we wanted. We’ve had high points along the way, but not enough of them. The best way to end a season, though, is to win. That gives you some momentum heading into the winter test schedule. It puts you in the right mindset.”

The Motorcraft/Quick Lane team tested at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway after the race there and walked away happy with the results.

“We’re well on our way to getting ready for next year,” Tasca said. “We’ve had a lot of things planned and we’ll test twice between now and the 2013 Winternationals. We’ll be ready to race.”
