Ford Motorcraft/Quick Lane Mustang Funny Car pilot Bob Tasca III won a Wally for the first time since his grandmother passed away. She passed away in March before the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals.
The Hope, New Hampshire native defeated a quad of fellow Funny Car pilots that included Matt Hagan, Tim Wilkerson, and Ron Capps. As a result, he won the 21st annual DENSO Spark Plug NHRA Four-Wide Nationals at The Strip at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Tasca III went 3.938 at 328.46 mph to claim the Wally. This was his first win since winning back-to-back events in June 2019.
Before Sunday, his most recent win came at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio on June 23rd, 2019.
He now has seven Funny Car wins. He won his first career four-wide win on Ford’s 57th birthday.
“It’s so special,” Tasca III said. “My dad hasn’t been out here in a long time and it’s great to have him out here. Happy birthday to Mustang, and I’m so privileged to be able to drive the quickest and fastest Mustang on the planet, so thank you to Ford.”
