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.

    On December 24 we lost a true champion in life and on the racetrack. Cameron Park resident Stephen Allard passed away with his wife and family by his side. Stephen was passionate about his family and a competitive racer on the track. Allard made a name for himself by winning sprint car championships at the Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico. This year, Stephen raced closer to his home and almost won the Placerville Speedway sprint car track championship. It was an honor to get to watch him drive a sprint car but a blessing to know him as a friend, brother, son and husband. In October of 2011, Stephen married the love of his life Lovleen Kumar. The two married at The Harris Ranch during a beautiful ceremony in which they shared their love story with close friends, family and fellow racers. This summer Stephen and Lovleen purchased their first home together in Cameron Park. Soon the couple welcomed their first addition to the family, Wesley, a bullmastiff. Lovleen was blessed with a flexible working schedule that allowed her to attend every sprint car race and be Stephen’s number one fan. The couple also embraced their love of Stephens’s 13-year-old daughter Ashley, who lives in the Chico area with her mother. Stephen loved being with his two brothers Jonathan and Kenny along with spending lots of time with his father Ken, step mother Debbie. His mom Tori lives in Florida. A celebration of life has been arranged on January 12 starting at noon at the Silver Dollar Fairgrounds in Chico, CA. The memorial service will be followed by a lunch where people attending are welcomed to share stories of Stephen with the family. Please check out the Stephen Allard Memorial Page on Facebook. With over 2,500 fans of Stephen’s Memorial Face Book Page and over 8,000 hits to date, many people have reached out to ask if they can help in anyway. Due to this unfortunate and unforeseen tragedy, friends of the family have recently set up a memorial fund in Stephen's name. We hope it can help lift some of the financial burdens that the family has and will have in the months to come. If you would like to make a donation in Stephen's name, a fund has been setup at El Dorado Savings Bank. You can either send a donation through the pay-pal account that links to the memorial fund or send a check to El Dorado Savings Bank that is written out to "Stephen Allard Memorial Fund" at PO box 1208, Placerville, CA 95667-1208. You can also drop off cash or a check at your local El Dorado Savings Bank. Please mention it is for the "Stephen Allard Memorial Fund or Account#013246228. Any help we can give Lovleen to help cover his memorial services, unforeseen future cost, medical bills, and help her keep the house that holds so many memories that they created together would be appreciated. We know that many organizations and families request your assistance throughout the year. Although donations are not tax deductible, we appreciate any donation that you are able to make. In closing we want to thank Stephen for all the joy you brought us all on and off the track. It was an honor to have crossed paths with you on our journey. The compassion you gave to others, your willingness to always take the time to help teach and inspire will not be forgotten. We appreciate all of the great stories, thoughts and prayers everyone has shared in celebrating Stephen’s life. Flowers and cards can be sent to the Home of Stephen and Loveleen Allard at 3040 Twin Oaks Drive, Cameron Park, CA, 95682. Further questions regarding donations can be sent to SAmemorial@yahoo.com. We appreciate everyone who has and continues to give the family respect and time as they deal with such a great loss.
