NIAGARA FALLS, ONTARIO (December 26, 2017) It was a pair of familiar faces earning a fourth place finish in the 2017 Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series points chase, the team of Jim Thomson and Ryan Boniferro.
Both drivers are former Rookie of the Year winners and Thomson was last year’s series champion so it’s no surprise to see them in the top five. The 2017 season saw them top the field with two number one qualifiers and only one first round loss all season. They were deep in eliminations at most races.
The points battle was so tight this year, these guys only finished two points ahead of fifth place and only six points behind third.
Sponsored by Joe’s Transmission, the pair have no shortage tuning expertise. Ryan Boniferro is the son of series’ founding sponsor Joe Boniferro. And Jim Thomson is a long-time friend of the family. Both cars are tuned out of Joe’s shop.
