Posted by: Bob Tasca III, Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford

My grandfather always wanted, to a certain degree, for John Force’s program and our Tasca Racing program to work together. He thought the world of John and sometimes when I would beat Force on the track, I don’t know if he was happy or sad. He was always very close with John and his camp and obviously thought the world of what John had done on the race track. He isn’t here to see what we’ve been able to put together, but I know he’s up there smiling at us from above.
Tasca Racing and John Force Racing are still two separate race teams that compete to win a race on Sunday, no different than we’ve done in the past. When it comes to Ford technology, and all of the investment and engineering that John’s team and Ford have done in his program over the years, that’s where we’re really going to come together and work. This is not only to put the BOSS technology in our Motorcraft/Quick Lane Shelby Mustang, but to continue to develop the technology both from a safety standpoint and performance standpoint. We made that big announcement at Charlotte. There’s a great picture that comes to my mind, where we’re all in the circle with our hands in the middle, and I think it shows the unity of Ford Motor Company, John Force Racing and Tasca Racing. A major turning point in my racing career, and I know it’s a turning point for John and for Ford to bring these teams together at a certain level. We want to both win on Sunday and we’ll let the chips fall where they may.
This isn’t something that just developed in the last three months. The Tasca Family and the Force family have shared a special relationship that has spanned for many years. There’s no question about that. It’s only natural for the all-Ford car to get tapped into the all-Ford power with the BOSS set-up. It’s a win-win for John. It’s a win-win for us. We have struggled with cool weather tune-ups. Although we’ve made progress, we haven’t got to the level where we know we need to be at so this gives us a big advantage. Looking at it long term, lining the Force camp and our camp and Ford to continue to develop performance and safety technology, is a win for all three. A lot of good stuff has come out of the last couple of weeks.
