JA Surges to 7th at Thunderbowl Raceway


PETERSEN MEDIA- Jonathan Allard and his Tri-C Motorsports team had quite an eventful night on Saturday night that culminated with a seventh place finish with the King of the West Series.

“We had some mechanical issues early, and then got hooked to another car in the feature, and ended up coming from the back to finish seventh,” Allard said.

After timing the Tri-C Manufacturing/K&N/ButlerBuilt backed No. 3c in ninth fastest, putting him on the front row of his heat race. Getting the early lead in his heat, Allard’s machine would suddenly lose power as it came to a stop, and he was pushed back to the pit area.

Lining up ninth in the feature event, Allard would work his way toward the Top-5 as he battled with Bud Kaeding and Craig Stidham. As Kaeding’s machine got out of shape in front of Allard, the two would hook to each other, and Allard would be forced to the back of the pack.

With an open red flag flying just after the incident, Allard’s team would make some adjustments to his machine, as he would work his way forward from the back of the pack. With his elbows up, Allard would carve his way forward, and cross the stripe with a seventh place finish.

“It was a frustrating night, but the guys worked hard, and kept at it,” Allard added. “We have a couple of races close to home this weekend, so hopefully we can put on a good show for our fans.”

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. Speed Equipment and Hoosier Tire for their support.

2015 BY THE NUMBERS: Races-26, Wins-3, Top 5’s-12, Top 10’s-15.
