BLASDELL, N.Y. --

Tom Coonly
Tom Coonly from Blasdell, New York says that 2012 is the best year he's had yet as a sportsman drag racer. Only five years into it, Tom has had more success than many see in an entire career.

In 2012, not only did Tom finish in second place in the highly competitive Joe's Transmission TNT Super Series after earning a strong 704 points, he also went to his second IHRA Tournament of Champions after finishing third in the IHRA Division One standings.

In TNTSS competition Tom qualified well all year, earning bonus points at all but two events including two number one qualifying spots. In eliminations, his season started off strong with an event win at just the second race. He then proceeded to go rounds at most events throughout the season plus he saw a second final in August, scoring a runner-up at St Thomas Raceway Park.

Then Tom capped it off with runner-up finish at the prestigious Performance Improvements Race Of Champions in early September. "I have to thank Jeff Gregoire, Jamie Stoneman, Pete D'Agnolo, Jon Jablonski and everyone from the TNT series for the text, email and phone call support this year," commented Tom.

Help with Tom's racing efforts comes from Phil's Quality Auto Service in West Seneca, Bill Elekes at AutosDirectBuffalo.com, Jan-Cen Motorsports, Competition Transmission and Jason Vitez Racecars.

"Have to thank Russ and Arlene Parker for their help over the past six years, Joe Boniferro for always supporting the series and Ted Barnes for putting it together," he added. "As well as all of our sponsors that help with each race and keep our payouts the best around." Tom's 1975 Nova has a 461 Chevrolet for power and is capable of 6.20 elapsed times in the eighth mile. For 2013, Tom plans to freshen up the drivetrain and go after the TNTSS championship.
