The Chico, California resident was able to charge forward to earn a 14th place finish in the Williams Motorsports K&N Filters No. 0. The night began with 42 competitors and Allard came out 22nd in the qualifying order. His lap of 14.143 put the K&N Filters machine only two one-thousandths of a second behind the 16th fastest car.
The track was tough because of the rain and traffic in the back was thick. Allard picked his spots and was on the move early in the K&N Filters Williams Motorsports No. 0. He was able to close in for a top ten spot. As Allard battled with the Tony Stewart Motorsports machine, he spun to a stop in turn two on the 25th lap. Allard was pushed back to the rear for the final 10 lap shootout.
Allard took the high side and charged around several competitors over the last few laps to bring home a hard fought 14th place finish. “We had a great car and are happy to race neck and neck with this kind of competition,” said Allard. “I want to thank our sponsors like K&N for supporting us as we move on in the series.”
Allard is scheduled to run the K&N Filters No. 0 at Manzanita Speedway in Arizona on Friday and Perris Auto Speedway in California on Saturday.
