Today, fan favorite and driver of the Maynard Wilkerson Racing Funny Car, Tim Wilkerson, became the most recent driver to do so.
Tim has been well known throughout his career for retaining long term sponsors having Levi, Ray and Shoup backing since 1999 and Summit Racing Equipment for 15 years.

The Muscatine, Iowa company are dedicated to building customized boat trailers that fit the unique needs and lifestyle of every manufacturer and boat owner.
“Curry’s Truck and Auto Repair has been a loyal supporter of our Funny Car operation for well over a decade, and I’m proud that the Currys have have decided to continue on with our Maynard Wilkerson Racing team,” Tim said. “They’re a family-based company with strong mid-Western values, and that’s important to me. We’ve enjoyed flying the colors of Curry’s Truck and Auto for all these years, and are excited to now represent the Curry’s new CTS Custom Trailers brand.”
Lakin Curry had this to say about the continuing partnership, “CTS Custom Trailers is thrilled to partner with Wilkerson for the 12th year. We are excited to see what this race season has in store for Wilkerson and his team. We can’t thank Tim Wilkerson enough for asking us to return this year as a sponsor. Here is to a great season!”
