CAMERON PARK — The Placerville Speedway racing community lost one of its own Monday when Stephen Allard reportedly died in Cameron Park where he lived.
A Chico native, Allard was a two-time Silver Dollar Speedway sprint car champion and this past year was sixth in the King of the West Sprint Car Series. At Placerville, Allard finished a close second in points to Auburn’s Andy Forsberg in a tense battle to the finish line. He drove the popular No. 14r sprint car owned by locals Kami Arnold and Scott Russell.
Placerville Speedway is expected to put out a press release once more information is know that the Democrat will run.
