Bob Tasca III, Tasca Racing team president and driver, will compete in 22 events across the U.S. in this year’s NHRA Nitro Funny Car division, the team said. Its Ford Shelby Mustang Nitro Funny Car will display PPG’s livery in the races at the New England Dragway in Epping, New Hampshire, and the Maple Grove Raceway in Mohnton, Pennsylvania.
“We are excited to be sponsoring Tasca Racing for another season,” said Bill Shaw, PPG director, strategic sales, Automotive Refinish. “Our long-time partnership brings two industries together, creating a strong collaboration between our companies. We look forward to continuing our support and sponsorship of Tasca Racing.”
“We are thrilled to have PPG renew its commitment for the 2022 season,” said Tasca. “Since day one, there have only been two logos on my race cars – Ford and PPG. PPG supports our racing program and supplies paint to seven Tasca body shops across the country, playing a key partnership role in the growth of our collision centers over the years.”
With the renewal, PPG and Tasca will continue a partnership that has lasted 25 years, the organizations said. The Tasca Automotive Group operates multiple car dealerships, collision centers and service centers that use PPG products.
