“I just returned from Australia,” he said. “I qualified the fastest out of 74 cars at Tyrepower Parramatta City Raceway for Outlaws Down Under. Despite a 12.396 quick time, things turned bad during the heat race. I was taken out by a competitor and my car had a lot of frame damage. The good news is I won the Piston Cup at Brisbane International Speedway.”

Allard uses K&N Engineering Oil Filters and K&N Carbon Fiber Air Box Air Filters. “K&N makes the best products, the oil and air filters are easy to use and maintain. We just wash, assemble and race. What’s interesting was the number of K&N Air Boxes I saw during the races in Australia. Most of the motor builders use them.”

Outlaws Down Under is in the record books but Allard said he will try for another Golden State Challenge title in 2007. The Chico, California resident and Williams Motorsports built three new cars for the new season. “We built them from the ground up,” said Allard. “K&N products are on all our vehicles.

”The World of Outlaws Series for Allard kicks off February 23 and 24 at Tulare Thunderbowl Raceway. The GSC Season starts on March 9 and 10 with the Mini Gold Cup at Chico’s Silver Dollar Speedway.
