    I was told by Howard Moon, that Von Smith is driving for someone else.

    Last years car was sold to Mitch Snyder. Snyder drove it at Joliet last Monday. I heard the plans are to put a Lenco drive in that car.

    Heard from a good source that it is Rocky Hummel's (Former T/S racer) car, which is Veney's old car. I assume Rocky isn't ready to drive, so Von is filling in for awhile.
