About Tony Szirka
UMS Tuning’s founder Tony Szirka found himself becoming bored with dealership work while becoming more and more engaged with the aftermarket performance industry. After moving to Phoenix in 2002 and working at a Porsche shop for a couple of years, it was time to take the business plunge. On August 1, 2004, UMS Tuning opened its first location in Tempe, AZ. Tony started racing with NASA in 2006 and in early 2007 UMS Tuning acquired Apex Motorsports of Tempe, adding the capability and networks of the two organizations together.
Tony is actively involved with the organization of Time Attack Racing, and is participating in the 2019 competition year with a Time Attack EVO VIII equipped with a StopTech 4 wheel Trophy BBK.
