Allard started out by qualifying fifth out of 50 entrants aboard the Williams Motorsports K&N Filters No. 0 sprinter. The heavy rain left the track very fast and narrow for most of the night. Allard finished seventh in the heat race and was put in the B-Main. “I was fortunate,” said Allard. “The top 13 qualifiers failed to make the transfer out of the heat races.”
