Allard drove the K&N Filters No.0 to post the fifth fastest lap of the session out of 31 cars. The Chico, California native then scored finishes of fifth in both his heat race and the dash to set him up with a third row starting spot in the main event.

During the 30-lap race Allard ran in the top five throughout and crossed the line at the checkered flag in fifth place behind fellow Americans Ricky Logan, Craig Dollansky, Joey Saldana and Paul McMahan.

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 Air Box works great. K&N products are on all our vehicles “
