There is a state mandated 11 pm curfew for all the classes. The night was running long and officials had to cut the laps for the main event back to 20. Allard started on the outside of the fourth row and had to move quickly with the limited amount of laps. By lap nine he was on the back bumper of leader Sean Becker. Allard made contact with another driver and both flipped over at turn three. That was the end of a promising night and finished with the Williams Motorsports K&N Filters No. 0 in fourteenth position.

On Saturday, Allard entered the Golden State Challenge Series at Antioch second in points. He qualified fifth out of 25 cars. Allard was the only driver in the heat who was able to make passes. He made it to the rear of the leader and took the win on the final lap to gain 5 points toward the championship.

“We use K&N Engineering Oil and Air Filters along with K&N’s Carbon Fiber Air Box,” said Allard. “K&N makes the best products, the oil and air filters are easy to use and maintain.”

Allard will compete at Silver Dollar Speedway this Friday night for Round 3 of the Feather Falls Casino point series in Chico. On Saturday he will be at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville for Round 8 of the Golden State Challenge Series.
