In the GSC Series the top eight fastest cars who survive the heat races make it to the dash. Allard survived and started the dash from the outside of row two. He was able to get around pole sitter Jim Richardson early and chased leader Andy Forsberg. Allard closed up on Forsberg in the K&N Filters, Red Line Oil No. 0 but ran out of time. He managed to land an outside front row starting spot.

In the heat Forsberg got the jump but Allard stayed tight to the rear bumper of the defending Silver Dollar Speedway track champ. As the pair rounded turn four on lap two Allard took command of the race. He went on to claim his first win of the season.

Allard and Williams Motorsports hoped to repeat their win on the second night of racing. In the 40 lap main event Allard started at third. At the midway point Allard moved up, but during the last part of the race it became a battle for first place. Allard had trouble down the backstretch and ended the race in third place.

After two nights of action Allard is in a tie with Tim Kaeding for the Golden State Challenge Series point lead. Allard uses K&N Engineering Products. “K&N is the best for our cars, the oil and air filters are easy to use and maintain. We just wash, assemble and race. The K&N Carbon Fiber Airbox works great. K&N products are on all our vehicles and will help us get a second Golden State Challenge Title in 2007.”

The next race for Allard is at Hanford’s Kings Speedway in Hanford, California.
