@TNTSuperSeries • #DragRacing • CAYUGA, ONTARIO – The Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series returns to Toronto Motorsports Park this weekend July 23-24 for races 6 and 7 in the championship points chase. Presented by Kevin Orr Mechanical, this weekend kicks off the second half of the ten race TNTSS season.
Car counts have been strong this season with the average at 30.2 cars in the first five events. There were 27 cars earlier this year at TMP paying $800 to the winner. Ted Barnes says to look for at least that many this weekend. “The series always pays $1000/win at 30 cars or more!”
The points chase is as close as ever with current points leader Billy Ryan has a 22 point lead over Harry Phelps. Another 6 points back is Jim Thomson, then 21 more to Dave Gunn and another 6 back to Mark Herbold in fifth place. Only 55 points separates first and fifth. That equates to one good qualifying effort and a few rounds.
Joining the TNTSS is the Ultimate Showdowns Series and the Race Cayuga Sportsman Series, all part of the Haldimand Community Weekend. Gates open at 9am Friday, Saturday and Sunday with qualifying beginning at 11am on Saturday and Sunday. Visit www.torontomotorsportspark.com for complete information.
