Pushes Car Owner Out of the Top 5 in the Process



CANFIELD, ONTARIO --

Jon Jablonski
Ask anyone in the western New York / southern Ontario area and they'll tell you Jon Jablonski of West Seneca, New York is a contender any day of the week. That point was demonstrated very clearly in the 2008 Joe's Transmission TNT Hot Rod Super Series points chase. For most of the 2008 season, Jon was either in or near the highly-coveted top 5 points positions. On a good run the last race of the year, Jon made it to the semi-finals where he fell in a tight round to David Surmatchewski (Oakland ON).

Jon finished 5th out of 45 competitors in the series. Scoring a win at Dunn Tire Raceway Park on August 8th along with many late-round appearances solidified his position in the top 5. And (because qualifying means points in the TNT Series) Jon qualified in the top 10 at five of seven events he attended in 2008 - And one of those was a #1 qualifying effort. In fact, Jablonski was in contention for the series title right up until the semi-final round at the last race of the season.

Jablonski has been driving the 1991 Jimmy owned by Bill Elekes for the entire 2008 season. In fact, Jon pushed Bill out of the top 5 in his run for the title. Rumour has it Jon has a new machine coming for 2009.

JJ wants to thank Bill Elekes, his daughter Stephanie and family for their continuous assistance. "I really want to thank my mother for all her support," said Jon. He also appreciates the efforts of Jeff Gregoire, Jason Vitez and Steve Sell.

The schedule for the 2009 Joe's Transmission TNT Hot Rod Super Series is currently being finalized. Discussions are underway with various tracks in the southern Ontario / western New York area. Monitor www.tntsuperseries.com at least once a week for updates.
