Tom Coonly
Tom Coonly had a slow start to the 2015 season. The Blasdell, New York driver suffered with first round losses and no qualifying points for the first two races.

But by race #3, he shook off the gremlins and Coonly started to go rounds. By the end of 2015, he was regularly seen well into eliminations. That earned the 31 year old 602 points and put him solidly in fifth place in the 2015 Joe's Transmission TNT Super Series.

"The car bails me out all the time," said Coonly. "This season didn't go as planned for me. I had some luck bracket racing and was lucky to sneak into the top five in this ultra-competitive series. It's a great group of guys that keep you on your toes at all times."

Coonly ended the season with one of the best side by side qualifying runs ever in the TNTSS. "The best part of the year was the last race where both Lance (Pinto) and I went 7.000 side by side and I got #1 qualifier."

The 1975 Nova is powered by a 461 BBC and powerglide that goes 9.70s @138 with support from Phil's Quality Auto Service and Autos Direct Buffalo .com . "Thanks to Jeff Gregoire, Jamie and Heather Stoneman, Pete D'Agnolo and Mike Janis at Jan-Cen Racing Engines for the always reliable big block."

Coonly has raced in the Joe's Transmission TNT Super Series since it began and this is his fourth time in the top five.
