Big Names Surrounded By New Faces: Schumacher and Tasca Talk 2023
On this episode of the NHRA Insider podcast, Tony Schumacher and Bob Tasca III join host Brian Lohnes to talk about offseason moves, upcoming testing, and the reasons why both think they are in a position to succeed during the 2023 season.
For Schumacher, 2022 was not a return year that was arranged in relatively hasty fashion. It's easy to hear in his words and tone that the Seattle-winning team wasn't exactly firing on all eight cylinders all year long, nor were they in a luxurious position with their equipment. With the addition of Mike Neff and Jon Schaffer as the leaders of the team, new crewmembers throughout, and a load of fresh parts, the SCAG Power Equipment Top Fuel dragster is ready to roll. The two also chat about the addition of Tim Wilkerson to the JCM team. A fun chat.
Tasca has grouped Aaron Brooks and Todd Okuhara together to lead his Motorcraft Ford Mustang team in 2023. He's also added new people to the crew, and the team has some really lofty goals for the season. A strong running car in the summer, Tasca and crew need to pick up the pace in the spring and fall to really be championship contenders.
