PETERSEN MEDIA- Fresh off of a successful season in New Zealand over the winter, Jonathan Allard and his Tri-C Motorsports team kicked their season off over the weekend with the World of Outlaws and the King of the West, and things did not go how Allard and company had hoped.
“I have to thank Clyde and Marion Lamar as well as my guys for their efforts while I was away, but unfortunately we just struggled all weekend long,” Allard said.
Struggling in time trials on Friday night, Allard found himself in the C Main event, and early in the race, contact with another car sent Allard’s machine into a sequence of violent flips. Though Allard would escape just a little sore, his night would be done.
Saturday night saw JA time the Tri-C Manufacturing/K&N/ButlerBuilt backed No. 3c machine in 29th quick, before finishing seventh in his heat race.
Lining up ninth in the night’s Last Chance Showdown, Allard was working his way forward around the slicked off Thunderbowl Raceway. Working his way towards a transfer spot, cars slowed in front of him, and with nowhere to go, Allard got into the back of another car, and was forced into the work area.
Returning to the track, Allard would work his way back up to an eighth place finish, but his weekend was ultimately over.
“It was a little disappointing to have a weekend like that our first weekend out, but we have some things to improve on this week before we head off to Stockton,” he added.
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-7, Wins-2, Top 5’s-5, Top 10’s-5.
ON TAP: Allard the Tri-C Motorsports team will be back in action on Saturday and Sunday night in Stockton, CA.
