Golden State Challenge Racer Wants to be Crowned King of California
A lot of work, perseverance and good luck paid off for Jonathan Allard at Petaluma Speedway in California. The current Golden State Challenge points leader raced to a top five finish despite a tough night for the Williams Motorsport Team.
Golden State Challenge Series heating up with Jonathan Allard contending for King of California
There are only eight races remaining in the Golden State Challenge Series until the King of California is crowned. Allard went into the Petaluma race holding a 46 point lead over Tyler Walker.
Allard clocked the third quickest lap in qualifying aboard the K&N Filters No. 0. He started in the third row of his heat race, but there was trouble. The 31-year-racer was in the second corner on the opening lap when another car forced him to take evasive action. Allard popped a wheelie and hit the turn two wall. He damaged the right rear of his car and was out of the heat.
The Williams Motorsports Team fixed the damage and Allard returned to action for the night’s 12 lap semi event. He took the lead all the way through and won a transfer to the main event. Allard played it safe and was able to maintain the series point lead even though he brought home fifth position in the K&N Filters No. 0.
“I poked my nose out a couple of times late in the race to try and pass the lapped traffic,” said Allard. “But I just kept telling myself to focus on finishing. This is what it takes to win championships.”
The Golden State Challenge Series returns to action June 28 in Tulare, California.
Allard uses K&N Engineering products. “K&N has the best air and oil filters on the market,” he said. “We’ve had many racers come to us and discuss the problems they are experiencing with other brands of racing filters that blow the sealing ring. We tell them about K&N, they switch and do not have any more failures. With our K&N air box the maintenance is effortless. Take one look at the champions around the race track and you will see why champions choose K&N.”
