BangShift is lucky to have a great relationship with the Tasca family. We’ve been given sneak peeks at their race cars, tours of their awesome Shelby Mod Shop and some juicy inside information about Ford racing efforts in the past. We had another opportunity to talk with a Tasca, this time Funny Car Ace Bob Tasca III at Palm Beach International Raceway. He finished fifth in points on the NHRA trail last season and is geared up for 2011.
One of the most interesting and compelling things about the Tasca clan is their ability to work together and to do so successfully for generations. We’ve all seen family businesses fold up once their founder passes on the reins, but the Tasca family has not such issues. In fact, successive generations have grown their business. Bob Tasca Sr. passed away last year, but Bob III is driven, and more than capable of carrying the family’s awesome drag legacy on for years to come.
