In 1967 ( I think ) , when Tas was still in the Piscopo #39 , Smokey Dengler with his #25 showed up at Flemington & pitted next to Tas & the Piscopo team . There was a heavy down pour & then a 2 hour try at running the track in . During that time , my Dad & I watched with binoculars from the grandstand as Tas started working with Smokey on his car . The show got cancelled , but by the time they did , Smokey's #25 was sitting there in the pits with the " Tas Tilt " !! It was a shame that they did not get to race that night . Smokey was one of the dedicated low buck racers at Reading who always gave it his best shot !
