One of our favorite NHRA Funny Car drivers, Tim Wilkerson, is debuting a new Trick Flow Specialties Ford Mustang Funny Car livery at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals this weekend.

The 22-time Funny Car national event winner, who just last week raced to the Finals at the NHRA Thunder Valley Nationals, will wear Trick Flow’s dynamic blue and orange for the upcoming race.

Wilkerson is seeking his second win at America’s Racetrack, Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio, having won this event back in 2010 by defeating John Force in a Final Round matchup.

“We are excited to be representing Trick Flow Specialties this weekend at Norwalk,” said Wilkerson, who has 47 career Funny Car final round appearances. “We have a great relationship with Summit Racing Equipment and Trick Flow Specialties is a great partner. This weekend will be a huge event and we will be looking to go some rounds and get back into the winner’s circle at Summit Racing Equipment Motorsports Park.”

So far this season Wilkerson has a semifinal finish at the NHRA Arizona Nationals and a final round appearance at last weekend’s Bristol Dragway.

Can’t wait until the weekend to see his new wardrobe?

Wilkerson and his Trick Flow Specialties Ford Mustang will be at a special Meet and Greet and Cruise In at Summit Racing Equipment in Tallmadge, Ohio tomorrow, Wednesday, June 22 from 4 to 8 pm.

Wilkerson begins his quest for a victory at the Summit Racing Equipment NHRA Nationals during qualifying on Friday and Saturday with final eliminations scheduled for 11 am ET on Sunday morning.

Fans will be able to tune in to FOX for live racing coverage Sunday beginning at 3 pm ET.
