Drag racer to start up car at Bristol start/finish line:

Sun Mar 20, 2011 9:02 am

For the first time, Motorcraft/Quick Lane Racing teammates Bob Tasca III and Trevor Bayne will suit up at the same race  Tasca to participate in opening ceremonies, and Bayne to compete in the Jeff Byrd 500 at his home track, Bristol Motor Speedway. Tasca will fire up his Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Shelby Mustang NHRA Full Throttle Series Funny Car on the start/finish line of the legendary track Sunday morning, after a weekend of appearances at the Ford display, a pace car ride and meetings with media. "When they see one of these cars start up right before the race, and we hit the throttle two or three times, that's when people are really blown away with just how much horsepower we are making out of these Ford engines," said Tasca, who will also take a ride around the world's fastest half-mile on Sunday. "Not too many people realize how much these nitro Ford engines produce, and when you're standing right next to it and we hit the throttle, you really can feel just how much power is there. It's always great to go to a NASCAR event and spread the gospel about our sport, and share what we do with people who don't know much about drag racing," Tasca and the NHRA Full Throttle Series come to Bristol Dragway Father's Day Weekend, June 17-19, 2011 for the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, presented by Tri-Cities area Area Ford Dealers
