Allen Looks Back On Signature Moment

Sprint car fans don’t normally believe in fairy tales, but 30 years ago, on Saturday night, Aug. 18, 1990, at Iowa’s Knoxville Raceway some 18,000 saw a Cinderella story come to life right before their eyes. Allen, now 76 years old, recently looked back at the five most important laps of his sprint car racing career. “It was toward the end of the race, with just a few laps to go, and they had a restart. “I said, ‘I’m still going to win this race.’ I went back to the bottom, passed him back and won the race.”. I’d start every year way in the hole and then I’d pay them back. Every race was the same to me, you just wanted to try and win it,” Allen explained. That’s when I started realizing that was a pretty big race to win.”.
