Tyler Allen will race in the NASCAR Whelan All American Series at Evergreen Speedway in Monroe. Tyler has his sight set on Tom Moriarity who holds the Super Late Model championship from 2010. “Tom helped us during the 2009 season on our first trip to the 5/8 mile at Evergreen, I’m really looking forward to racing against him for a championship. Earning the respect of racers at a new track is always important and I look forward to racing hard with everyone at Evergreen Speedway.”
Allen comes to the series from South Sound Speedway where he raced for three years. In 2010 he finished 2nd in the championship series, consistently qualifying and finishing in the top five every weekend. In 2010 Allen competed in the Richard Petty’s Driver Search II and placed 5th in the competition. Allen gained experience driving a NASCAR Sprint Cup car on Charlotte Motor Speedway, Concord Motorsports Park and worked with NASCAR drivers, Ken Schrader and Marcos Ambrose. Allen is looking forward to bringing those experiences to Evergreen Speedway on both the 3/8 and 5/8 track.
Allen continues to work with Richard Petty Driving Experience as a driving instructor and will be traveling throughout the racing season gaining experience on many of the famous race tracks around the country. Allen Racing is also pleased to announce that Ron Wolf, a five time late model champion, has agreed to support as a backup driver.
“Ron taught me a lot the past few year, so we are really excited he has agreed to stand in as a backup driver in the case that I am traveling for Richard Petty Driving Experience. Ron brings a lot of talent and knowledge to the team that will ultimately help us in our quest for the championship, and it’s a real confidence builder knowing we have that kind of support.”
