Last season, “Allard Mania” was a common theme at the Placerville Speedway when the late Stephen Allard battled Auburn’s Andy Forsberg toe-to-toe for the track title and won a number of races along the way at the high banked bullring.

On Saturday night, Jonathan Allard gave the Placerville crowd another glimpse of “Allard Mania” and completed a thrilling final corner pass of Shane Golobic to capture his second King of the West 410 Series victory of the year.

Nor matter the circumstances, whenever the King of the West 410’s invade Placerville Speedway it comes right down to the end and Saturday’s finish was as good as it gets in sprint car racing.

The win for Allard was his 34th with the Golden State/King of the West Sprint Car Series, which places him third on the all-time list behind just Brent and Tim Kaeding. It was also Allard’s third career 410 Sprint Car triumph in Placerville and first since the 2010 season.

Shane Golobic came home second to score another runner up finish with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series in Placerville. In April, Golobic was part of a similar finish in which Kyle Hirst was able to get by him with just two laps left in that feature.

Thirteen-time King of the West 410 champion Brent Kaeding charged from 14th to third in the main event to earn his best finish of the 2013 season. The living legend had his elbows up in the feature and looked like the “BK” of old on Saturday night.

Sacramento’s Willie Croft continued his consistent season by scoring a fourth place finish in the feature aboard the Tri-C Machine Sprinter and 16-year-old Dominic Scelzi completed the top-five.

The King of the West 410’s will now head for the Reno Tahoe Fernley Speedway on Friday and Saturday, July 5-6.
