“We really like racing at Kings Speedway,” said Allard. “It’s also great to see all the fans come back and support the Cotton Classic. I hope we can do this for years to come.”

Allard lined up on the outside of the front row in the K&N Filters No.0 at the start of the main event. As he took the lead, the yellow lights came on and forced a complete restart. This time Allard had a great jump off turn four and led the 21 car field in the contest.

There were numerous stops throughout the race for hazards and it slowed the flow. Allard had nothing to worry about until the midway point. San Jose’s Tim Kaeding was able to move around Ronnie Day for second place. Allard was able to keep a safe distance between himself and Kaeding as the laps wound down and the checkered flag waved, Allard brought the K&N Filters No. 0 home in victory lane.

“The whole crew gave me a great car,” said Allard. “The dirt on the tracks is very tough on racing engines. Out team knows we don’t have to worry because we have the K&N air box. It’s easy to maintain and allows us to achieve maximum horsepower every night. Horsepower equals winning.”

Allard plans to race in Australia after Christmas and began with the World of Outlaws in February.
