“It was difficult to make things happen in the open track,” said Allard. “At Petaluma, once lapped traffic comes into play the intensity heats up.” During lap 15 Allard moved into second place. As soon as he was in position to take over and go into first place the caution lights came on and took them out of lapped traffic.
“On the restart Tyler escaped, but I quickly had a chance to close in,” said the Chico, California native. “As soon as I had that opportunity, there was another caution.”
Allard dove as hard as he could and shot to the high side of turn four. He could not get the opening he needed and had to settle for second at the stripe. “This place is exciting when lapped cars come into play,” he said. “A lot of times it is what decides the races at Petaluma.”
Next up for Allard and Williams Motorsports will be a double-header weekend starting with the re-scheduled Bill Brownell Memorial on Friday in Chico, followed by the fifth event of the Golden State Challenge Series season on Saturday at the Ocean Speedway in Watsonville. "We've been in position to win multiple races so far this year so hopefully next weekend we can get back into victory lane at Chico and Watsonville," said Allard.
