CANFIELD, ON – The Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series continues to be a leader in the world of sportsman drag racing. The series based solely on 10.90 racing will pay back more to the racers in 2013 than it has in any previous season.
The TNTSS will hand out more than $9000 in cash and prizes, not including event payouts and contingency postings, making the TNTSS one of the most lucrative sportsman series in the country. More importantly, changes to the event payout structure should attract even higher car counts.
According to Ted Barnes, TNTSS Director of Operations, more events will pay $1000/win.
“Even TNTSS events with light car counts should fall into the $700/win category,” says Barnes.
With the new structure, a winner gets $700 with as few as 17 cars…. $800 at 24 cars…. and a stout $1000 with only a 30 car field.
“In a series where the average car count was more than 24 cars in 2012 including three events over 30 cars, we’re very excited to be a part of this,” said title sponsor Joe Boniferro.
To fund these changes, participants will receive round money starting with a second round win, aligning the TNTSS with the rest of the industry.
“We couldn’t do any of this without the support of so many,” added Ted. “It’s because we have terrific sponsors and competitors that this series flourishes the way it does. Each of them are involved because they believe in what we do. They want to help sportsman racing to continue to grow.”
It appears that sentiment applies to title sponsor Joe Boniferro as well. Joe’s Transmission Service will return as the series title sponsor in 2013 for the seventh consecutive year.
“Joe Boniferro has been with us since the series began in 2006 and quite frankly is irreplaceable. We couldn’t do what we do without his support, both financial and otherwise,” commented Ted. “He brings so much to the table, all in the interest of helping local sportsman racers.”
The 2013 schedule has been finalized with two new dates added at Empire Dragway. Visit www.tntsuperseries.com for all the latest information on the most watched sportsman series in the country and to find out how you can be a part of it all.
