PETERSEN MEDIA- Working all week to get a new car finished up, Jonathan Allard and his Tri-C Motorsports team were rewarded for their efforts on Friday night as they picked up the win at the Silver Dollar Speedway.
“It was a long week, but it was great to come out of the gate and pick up a win,” Allard said. “Saturday night we had a good night going, but we were in the wrong place at the wrong time and got collected in a wreck.”
Allard got his weekend kicked off on Friday night at the Silver Dollar Speedway by timing the Tri-C Manufacturing/K&N/ButlerBuilt No. 3c machine in second fastest during qualifying time trials.
Lining up in the second row of his heat race, Allard had his elbows up as he powered his way into the lead, and picked up the win, earning himself a spot in the feature even redraw.
Pulling the six, Allard would line the Amerikote/King Racing Products/BR Motorsports backed No. 3c machine up in the third row for the 25-lap feature event.
From his third row starting position, Allard was quick to work his way forward, as he reeled in Andy Forsberg on the fourth lap, and made his move exiting turn four to complete lap five.
Once out in front, Allard flexed his muscle and set sail on the field as he was flawless out front and picked up his third win of the season in the United States.
Heading to Stockton, CA on Saturday night with the King of the West Series, Allard would get his night started off by timing in 11th fastest. Lining up on the front row of his heat race, Allard would get the jump and pick up the win as he advanced to the night’s dash.
Lining up on the front row of the dash, Allard would finish in the second spot, and secure a front row starting spot for the 30-lap feature event. As the feature event went green, Allard, Bud Kaeding, and Tyler Walker would battle for the top spot down the front stretch.
Getting into turn one, a car would get out of shape in front of Allard, and as he took action to avoid contact, he would get his machine upside-down.
With his crew working feverishly in the pit area, Allard would make the call, and restart from the tail end of the field. Working his way back forward, Allard would get back inside the Top-10, only to see a part fail on the 19th lap, and bring his night to an early end.
“It was shaping up to be a very good weekend for this team, and I hate to see it end like it did with a crash and some tore up parts,” Allard said. “We have all been working hard, and it was good to get back into victory lane on Friday night.”
Allard would like to thank Tri-C Manufacturing, K&N, ButlerBuilt, Amerikote, King Racing Products, BR Motorsports, Red Line Oil, KSE Racing Products, Weld Wheels, NGK Spark Plugs, FK Rod Ends, Hunt Magnetos, Longacre Products, RCM Design, Ti64, A.R.T.
