The Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series opens the season with a double header this weekend May 21-22 at Toronto Motorsports Park in Cayuga Ontario. In its 10th season, the highly competitive sportsman drag racing series will host a complete event on Saturday and another on Sunday.
Jan-Cen Motorsports presents the weekend’s events and Mike Janis couldn’t be more excited to be involved. “This series is a very good deal for the racers. It produces a lot of really good racers and many of them use our stuff.” Jan-Cen has been supporting the TNTSS since the early days of the series and is a great fit according to series director Ted Barnes. “We’re thrilled to have Jan-Cen presenting our season opener!”
Last year’s TNTSS champion, Paul Young will be at Cayuga to defend his 2015 title. “Word on the street is there are quite a few guys coming up from the US side so expect a solid car count!” As always, racers in the Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series will see the best payouts in the country with an event win paying $1000 with as few as 30 cars in the field.
Round money starting with round two wins along with many specialty awards make this series very popular among sportsman racers. Prizes like the J&S Collision First Round Loser Closest To The Index Award of $50 cash and new this year, VP Fuels $50 certificates will be given away at each race as well.
This weekend also means the start of the 2016 points chase and both races are qualifiers for the REVS Full Throttle Race of Champions coming up in September.
The TNTSS is joining the Can Am Stock / Super Stock Series along the Ultimate Showdowns Series this weekend. Gates open early Friday for weekend camping with qualifying getting underway at 10am on Saturday.
