Marysville, CA – April 20, 2012…
Chico California’s Jonathan Allard stood in victory lane Saturday night with his Weld Racing equipped sprint car after a thrilling duel with veterans Bobby McMahan and Jimmy Sills.
The victory was Allard’s 29th career win in combined King of the West and Golden State Challenge main events, which breaks a tie with Steve Kent for third on the all-time list. It was also Allard’s first ever 410 win at Marysville Raceway Park and gives him the point lead by one-marker over Tim Kaeding.
“It’s great to come out here and get the win tonight for Morrie & Katie Williams, Ashley Smith and this whole team,” said the two-time state 410 champion. “I just stayed focused, drove hard and here we are on the front stretch. I also want to thank all you fans for coming out. It’s great to see so many people here in the stands.”
The Cancen Oil KWS Series presented by Goodyear will be right back in action next Saturday night April 28 at another quarter-mile bullring located near the Sacramento area, with the much anticipated Winged 410 Sprint Car return to Placerville Speedway. The high-banked oval with its trademarked red clay always lends itself to fantastic racing so it’s sure to be another must-see show.
