PPG announced that it has extended its sponsorship of the Tasca Racing team for the 2023 National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) season. PPG also unveiled a new look for the PPG Ford Shelby Mustang Nitro Funny Car that will be driven by the Tasca Racing team.
The paint scheme, designed to match PPG’s IndyCar livery, took seven people, 350 hours and 14 days to complete. It was revealed today at the Amalie Motor Oil NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville, Florida. Featuring bright, bold colors and a high-gloss finish, the car will be a standout on the track not only at Gainesville when it premieres, but also at the NHRA New England Nationals, Thunder Valley Nationals and NHRA Nevada Nationals.
Led by Bob Tasca III, team president and driver, Tasca Racing is running a full schedule in this year’s NHRA Nitro Funny Car division. The team’s 11,000-horsepower Nitro Funny Car will display the PPG logo in every race this year.
PPG and Tasca have been partners for more than 25 years.
