The Sekura boys are taking some time off to pursue the expansion of thier businesses and hope to return with dry hops, big burn outs and even bigger smiles in the future. They give a special thanks to all the funny car fans that follow this great sport and supported the Sekura Brothers. Also a special thanks to the organizers of our great club for all thier work making it happen. They became our family and friends over our short time.

History of the team: Corey and Ron had a funny car rolling chassis sitting in a shed for 20 years and were approached by some members of this club to get the car going. In 2007 with the help of Kincaid Racing got NHRA and IHRA licences and shared driving one car "TO MUCH FUN". In 2008 purchased another funny car from Cal Tebb Racing
Drag Racing general history: Ron and Corey grew up on a farm in Drayton Valley riding in rodeo's and making anything with a motor go fast! Ron got his licence first and went drag racing with Corey as crew. Ron brought the first drag race to Drayton with the hot rod club shutting down a new major secondary Hwy. Ron campaigned a 10sec Chevy II along with many others. Corey drag raced and raced some ATV's, stock car and (with Arvid Fonstads help) built rapid fire motorsports park in Drayton Valley operating for 15 years featuring sprint cars, monster trucks, mud drags, demo. derby, tractor pulls etc. getting to drive a nitrous big block mud rail car and Marvin Anderson's Monster truck Wild Thing . In 2007 the brothers decided it was time to go drag racing again and what's more fun than a FUNNY CAR!!!
Career highlights: Team award Rocky Mnt. Nats.,2 NHRA Wally wins at Mission B.C., Rocky trophy wins in 2011
Ron's highlights include some serious wheeling in the 10 sec Chevy II and winning two funny car events in 2009. Corey's highlights include getting to drive a monster truck and a mud drag rail car and running a 6.77 @ 202mph. in the funny car in 2009.
Current racing plans: To have a consistent successful season in 2012 and win some races.
Any racing future goals: To become one of the predominant racing teams as a whole package.
Favourite racing moment: Corey's has to be the long ride from Tim Boychuk's camp to ours at 4 am on a 50cc motorcycle with 3 200lb men aboard " WE MADE IT"

Heroes of the sport: Ron and Corey both agree the real heroes to us are our families and crew ( who are now our family) who do so much to allow us to be "KIDS" again.

Thank You!!!!
