NEW YORK (January 17, 2016) Jason Vitez and JJ Jablonski teamed up as co-drivers this year and earned themselves a second place finish in the 2015 Joe’s Transmission TNT Super Series.
Both drivers are former champions in the highly competitive 10.90 series so it was no surprise to see them near the top of the standings as a team. 651 points had them in contention right up until championship weekend.
Vitez’s Lancaster win in Jablonski’s Nova at race 5 moved them up to third from seventh in the points standings. Then Jablonski held them there through race 8 when Vitez posted a runner-up finish at Empire’s Pro Am and set them solidly in second place.
“Well the year didn’t start off as planned,” said Vitez. “But teaming up with my best buddy JJ was great. As I was going to miss the second race and he missed the first, it was the smartest thing to do.”
“Driving his car and winning in it was also pretty cool,” he added. “I finally got the Chevelle out at the Empire divisional and a runner up finish was pretty amazing too. All in all it was a pretty good year.”
Vitez was quick to thank to MSD, Hoosier Tires, Royal Purple, Auto Meter, Reeactor Trans Brake Switches, Jiffy-tite, Competition Transmission and Jan-Cen Motorsports for their help. “And of course the boys back at shop for getting my car done. Can’t wait to next season!”
