Ask ten racers, and nine will tell you it's better to be lucky than good – but that it's essential to be both. Being good you at least have some say over, but luck turns on a dime, and leaves you scratching your noggin with a lot of what-ifs.
Tim Allison already has 98 feature wins and 20 championships, with plenty of competitive racing still left in him.

"My main goal was to hit 100 wins this year, along with a championship or two, but in racing you have to have a little luck," remarked Tim Allison the Lima, Ohio sprint car racer.

"All through, and up until past the halfway point of the season, we were leading the points in both our series, and we had only two part failures that were out of our control, and that's just racing. If that had not happened we would probably have won two more championships and hit 100th mark, but that will have to wait till next year. All-in-all we had another great and safe year of racing, and we will get the 100th victory next year, and it will be an awesome accomplishment."
The Tim Allison Racing worked hard all year, coming up just shy of two more championships and their 100th feature victory.

Last weekend was the last race for the championship at Limaland Motorsports Park and for the traveling National Racing Alliance (NRA) 360 Sprint Series. The goal for Allison and his team was to win the feature, collect as many points possible, and have a shot at winning a championship, or two. The inversion for the feature was 10, which placed Allison on the pole. At the flag he grabbed the front and never looked back, at times leading by a full straightaway. With the victory Allison came up just 55 points shy of winning the Limaland Championship and 60 points short of the NRA Championship, finishing a very reputable third in both.

"It was great to get the win, plus back-to-back feature wins, and now we only have two to go to hit the 100th," said Allison. "Coming close to hitting the 100th mark fires me up, as we won both of the last two races at the end of the season, we have great momentum going. So yes, I am fired up about next season and can't wait till it starts. We are sitting on 98 feature wins, and 20 championships, not to bad of a record so far," reflects the K&N sponsored driver.

"But every win and championship keeps getting sweeter as I keep getting older. I will be 52 by the time this article comes out, and I feel I have quite a few years left in me as my health and reflexes are still very good, and I'm still very competitive and can get the job done."

"I know there will be a time when I will walk away, and when I do, I'll know I will have accomplished a lot, and that I set a lot of records. I am very grateful for everyone that has helped me along the way."

"If you want to run up front and win races, you better be using K&N products," comments Allison. "I have been using K&N oil and air filters, and filter oil and cleaners in all my race cars, and my street rod for over 18 years. There's a lot of confidence in knowing your engine is being well taken care of – nothing beats K&N's great products."

"There are about four races left that we want to hit before we close the season for 2010. We will go to K-C Raceway in Chillicothe, Ohio on Saturday for our last visit of the year there. Again, thank you K&N for all your continued help and support, it has been another great year!"
