Supermodified driver Tim Snyder, who had to step out of the driver’s seat several weeks ago, has been given the go-ahead to get back in the driver’s seat. After driving the car into mid-June, the “Zero Hero” had to step out from behind the wheel due to problems related to a blood clot in his leg. This week, Snyder has been given the clearance from his doctor to crank it up. “The doctor said I could race it this week if I wanted to”, said Snyder.
But the return won’t happen for this weekend’s championship night. Jarett Andretti, who has been driving the car for the last several weeks in Snyder’s absence, will be hoping to clinch the rookie of the year championship. Andretti currently rides 24 points ahead of Dave Cliff Jr. in the rookie race, with one point race remaining.
“Jarett is still in the car for this weekend only”, added Snyder. “But as it stands right now, I’ll be running Classic”. The 2001 Classic winner has a special knack for this race, and is excited about this year’s chances. Rumors of the team trying to recruit other drivers for Classic are untrue, said Snyder.
Local fans are happy to see the veteran and former winner back in the saddle again. Go get ‘em, Timmy!
