Two years ago I sat next to a midget driver at the Belleville Nationals (in the grandsstand) named Allen Gillis. If this is the same man you have listed, I believe he said he was from Illinois, but have no other details. If John Huss reads this he was familiar with who Allen Gillis is and may have more info.

Wheeler Gresham raced at the old San Jose Speedway on Tully road. The programs I have list him as from San Jose California. He is actually Wheeler Gresham III and was driving the Gresham Spl. v-w in a J.C. Agajanian 100-lap USAC midget race 1975.
He was racing against the likes of Jimmy Caruthers, Hank Butcher, Sleepy Tripp, Tommy Astone, Poncho Carter, Larry Patton, Dave Strickland Sr., and Johnny Anderson (Sacramento). Jim Bredenberg
