CHICO, Calif., September 28, 2023…For the 30th time Silver Dollar Speedway will host the Pacific Sprint Fall Nationals featuring winged 360 sprint cars on October 6th and 7th. This year marks the 9th time the race will be in tribute to Stephen Allard.

The weekend will feature two individual nights of racing with qualifying, heat races and main events. Friday night’s main event winner will earn $2,500, while the Saturday night 40-lap finale will pay a staggering $5,000 to win. This race weekend will conclude the 2023 season at Chico.

Stephen Allard was a two-time sprint car champion at Silver Dollar Speedway. In 1996 he tied Shane Scott for his first title and then backed that up in 2007 with his second and final. Throughout his Chico career, Allard won a total of 18 sprint car races, 15 of them being 410 wins while three came in the 360 ranks. Allard’s first win at Chico was on August 9, 1991, and his final win took place at the Civil War 360 Fair race on May 30, 2010. Allard had a determined driving style mixed with the right amount of aggressiveness that earned the respect of fellow drivers and fans.

In honor of his brother, Jonathan Allard returns to this event after a four-year absence. Allard recently raced in the Gold Cup but hasn’t competed in the Fall Nationals since 2019. Jonathan won this event back in 2008. The odds-on favorite might just be Fremont’s Shane Golobic. Out of eight races this year at Silver Dollar Speedway, Golobic has won four. He is the 2022 track champion and the defending winner of the Fall Nationals. Sacramento’s Kalib Henry has been stout in recent years and won the 2021 edition of this race. Four-time Chico champion Andy Forsberg of Auburn has three Fall Nationals wins, but his most recent was back in 2016. The seven-time track champion Sean Becker also had success at this race. He is a three-time winner but like Forsberg, his last win was a while ago in 2014. Other stout drivers will include Sacramento’s Justyn Cox, Templeton’s Kaleb Montgomery, Modesto’s Tony Gomes, Lincoln’ Tanner Carrick, and this years Tyler Wolf Memorial winner Landon Brooks of Yuba City
