Besideds Roger Penske entering a Camaro for Mark Donohue to drive at Daytona, Smokey Yunick
has entered his Camaro (last seen at Riverside in 1967) and has signed up Jim Hall and Bruce McLaren
as drivers. A pretty impressive team, at least on paper. The Trans-Am is not a separate race this year
like it was in 1967. Instead, the T/A cars have been included in the 24-hour race to help fill up the
grid. This is due to the FIA not allowing the big-cubic-inch prototype cars to run anymore.
