TNT Supercars, recently purchased from Smiley's Racing Products by Art Zunker and Dillon Bontrager, announced their acquisition of Joe Monden Race Cars.
“Most of our customers know that Joe has been a driving force behind TNT Supercars since day one,” said Bongtrager. “He built the first TNT Supercars chassis, and the vast majority of TNT machines over the past six years came from his shop. Making Joe a part of our team going forward was a huge priority for Art and I when we purchased the company.”
TNT has relocated to a 5000 square foot facility in Forney, Texas, where the final assembly of the cars will take place along with the stocking and sales of hundreds of high performance parts. Joe Monden Race Cars will be also relocating to Forney within a separate 6,000 square foot shop dedicated to the fabrication and production of the cars.
Additionally, TNT has reached an agreement with Tommy Phillips to be a consultant and sales advisor. He will also be carrying a full line of parts in his trailer to continue to support customers and fellow racers at the track. [10/25/2012]
