Default Seeking Info on Arlen Vanke NSS 68 Cuda

I purchased Arlen Vanke's NSS 68 Cuda recently and need help in gathering historical info. I only have a couple photos (attached) of Arlen with the car and not sure when or where taken. I believe the car was built around 1997. The fellow who built the chassis has passed. I would be grateful for any sources of information, articles, personal stories or photos of Arlen with the car.

Attached is the second photo that I thought I captured (Sorry, I'm new at this). I also meant to ask if anyone knows anything about the Tucker half of the Vanke-Tucker Racing Team. Again, I will appreciate any info. on the car or team. Thanks.

John Tucker was Arlen's financial partner in the late 90's and early 2000's. The Barracuda was campaigned in Super Stock. Arlen raced a 65 Hemi Belvedere during that same time frame in N/SS.
