Allard kicked off the weekend on Friday night at Silver Dollar Speedway and finished second in his heat to transfer the K&N No. 0 into the main event. Allard began the 25 lap feature on the inside of the second row. He took the lead from Robert Stice never looked back.

“I can’t express enough how much hard work my team puts into this deal and allows me to just get in it and drive,” said Allard. “This adds up to five wins at my home track this season.”

On Saturday, the Golden State Challenge Series moved to Petaluma Speedway. Allard started off solid and won the heat race. In the 30 lap feature, the defending GSC Champion made his move into second position on lap seven. On lap nine Allard used traffic to slip under the leader but Brent Kaeding was able to get around both.

For the rest of the race Allard and Kaeding navigated their way to first and second place through thick traffic. Kaeding’s engine began to have problems and Allard took the lead and went on to score the victory.

“With great support from K&N Filters and our crew, we’re excited about heading up to try and win the Dirt Cup for the third time in a row,” said Allard. “K&N makes the best products, the oil and air filters are easy to use and maintain.”

No one has won the Dirt Cup three consecutive times and Allard is hoping his momentum continues. Nearly 60 cars, including all of California’s best are expected to compete for the $25,000 first place prize. The event starts June 11th and ends on Father’s Day.
