K&N® sponsored Jonathan Allard and the Tri-C Motorsports team worked all week to get a new car finished before Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, California. Allard got his weekend kicked off on Friday night by timing the Tri-C Manufacturing/K&N/ButlerBuilt No. 3c machine in second fastest during qualifying time trials. Allard lined up in the second row of his heat race and kept his elbows up as he powered his way into the lead for the win. With his finish in the heat, Allard earned himself a spot in the feature even redraw.

Pulling the six, Jonathan Allard lined the K&N filters equipped Amerikote/King Racing Products/BR Motorsports backed No. 3c machine in the third row for the 25-lap feature event. From his third row starting position, Allard was quick to work his way forward, as he reeled in Andy Forsberg on the fourth lap, and made his move exiting turn four to complete lap five. Once out in front, Allard flexed his muscle and set sail on the field as he was flawless out front and picked up his third win of the season in the United States. “It was a long week, but it was great to come out of the gate and pick up a win,” Allard said.

The K&N supported Tri-C Motorsports team packed up and headed to Stockton, California the following night for the King of the West Series. Jonathan Allard got his night started by timing in 11th fastest. Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Allard got the jump and picked up the win and also advanced to the night’s dash. Allard started on the front row of the dash eventually finishing second and securing a front row starting spot for the 30-lap feature event. As the feature event went green, Allard, Bud Kaeding, and Tyler Walker battled for the top spot down the front stretch.

Getting into turn one, a car got a bit out of control in front of Allard, and as he took action to avoid contact, Allard flipped his race car upside-down. The K&N sponsored Tri-C Motorsports crew worked feverishly in the pit area to make the restart. Unfortunately Allard had to restart from the tail end of the field. Working hard to move forward in the pack, Allard made it back inside the Top-10, only to see a part fail on the 19th lap, and bring his night to an early end. “It was shaping up to be a very good weekend for this team and I hate to see it end like it did with a crash and some tore up parts,” Allard said. “We have all been working hard, and it was good to get back into victory lane on Friday night.”

Jonathan Allard would like to thank Tri-C Manufacturing, K&N, ButlerBuilt, Amerikote, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Red Line Oil, KSE Racing Products, Weld Wheels, NGK Spark Plugs, FK Rod Ends, Hunt Magnetos, Longacre Products, RCM Design, Ti64, A.R.T.

Allard will be back at the Silver Dollar Speedway on Friday nights for weekly point racing before heading to the Stockton Dirt Track with the King of the West Series.
