Default David Surmatchewski - 2013 TNT Super Series Third Place!

COUNTDOWN to a Championship - David Surmatchewski - 2013 TNT Super Series Third Place

Year-end awards to be handed out Saturday November 16 at Johnny Rocco's

The name David Surmatchewski is one you'll often see in late rounds at Joe's Transmission TNT Super Series events. In 2013, the Oakland Ontario sportsman racer earned 745 points - finishing third in the championship chase - only 52 points out of top spot.

In addition to his solid points run, Surmatchewski came in second for the Performance Improvements Driver of the Year Award, lubricated by Royal Purple, with an average winning package in 2013 of only 0.037.

Surmatchewski put himself in the top five early in the year with a Hoosier Tire Canada Number One Qualifier Award and the event win at Cayuga on June 9th. He raced smart in 2013, earning qualifying points at all but one event in a season filled with many on-track challenges for the winningest driver in TNTSS history.

Since 2007, Surmatchewski has made 15 final round appearances with 10 of those in the 'W' column. He's finished eighth or better in the championship points since 2008 with four of those top five finishes including the 2011 TNTSS championship.

"Without the love and support of my wife Alyson and daughters Marissa and Madison, and Mom and Dad, Norma and Roman Surmatchewski, this would not be worth doing," commented Dave. "And a sincere thanks to Ted Barnes for creating and being the driving force behind the series and administrators Nicole Jablonski & Anastasia Boniferro for their help throughout the 2013 season."

Dave was very quick to thank Alex Schuts and Insta-Insulation for standing by him and being his prime sponsor for the past five seasons. He also mentioned Danny Douglas at Douglas Engines Brantford "puts him to the front of the list" when he needs help. "And Brady Kelly and all the fine crew at UAP NAPA Brantford for their continued support over the years," he added.

"I can't say enough about Joe Boniferro from Joe's Transmission. He has been a solid title sponsor of this series for seven years now and it is very much appreciated." Surmatchewski also mentioned he wanted to thank the long list of people who support the TNTSS. "Without them, the series simply wouldn't exist."

"2013 was a season filled with both highs and lows, rain outs, muggy hot days and gorgeous picture perfect racing weather. Throughout this, all things considered, it was once again good fun and I couldn’t think of a better bunch of friends to spend our weekends with doing the sport we all love."

Surmatchewski's 1983 Olds Cutlass has a 377 Chevrolet for power, making about 600 horsepower at 8100 rpm and has run the quarter-mile in 10.19 seconds at 133 mph. Much of this car was hand-built by Surmatchewski.

Next up is the 2013 TNTSS Awards Night where the best of the 2013 Joe's Transmission TNT Super Series will be celebrated on Saturday November 16th at Johnny Rocco's in Niagara Falls, Ontario. Visit www.tntsuperseries.com to learn more.
