The majority of the NHRA teams are testing at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada. However, that does not mean every team is testing there.
Approximately six pro teams are testing at Wild Horse Pass Motorsports Park in Chandler, Arizona. On Friday night, one of the teams testing in Arizona had an accident.
Bob Tasca’s Funny Car team was involved in the accident. We’re not going to speculate how the accident happened.
According to Competition Plus, two members of Tasca’s Motorcraft/Quick Lane Funny Car operation were injured. Team publicist Lachelle Laney told Susan Wade that the incident was a “starting line mishap.”
“The mechanics are being evaluated,” Laney said to Wade. “But, according to team owner Bob Tasca III, the injuries appear to be minor. The cause of the incident is under review.”
With this incident, Tasca III and his crew members may skip Saturday’s session before heading to Pomona, California for the start of the 2020 season. The NHRA starts the Lucas Oil NHRA Winternationals presented by ProtectTheHarvest.com on Friday, February 7th.
The event runs through Sunday, February 9th with the first eliminations of the season.
As more information becomes available, we will share it.
