VOLUSIA DRIVER PREVIEW: How Jacob Allen stacks up at DIRTcar Nationals
Chris Owens
Allen to start quest for first win at three-day Volusia Speedway Park event

Each week we’ll be looking at the statistics of how a full-time World of Outlaws driver has performed at the DIRTcar Nationals for the past five years, leading up to the Feb. 7-9, 2020, event

Jacob Allen got the scent of victory last year but not the taste. He was a lap away from winning his first career World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series race at the Stockton Dirt Track before an ignition box failure on the last lap took him out of the race.

With his passion to win and competitive nature still burning inside him, he’ll be on the hunt in 2020 to end his winless streak. A good run during the World of Outlaws Feb. 7-9 DIRTcar Nationals event at Volusia Speedway Park could be the added boost he needs to make it happen.

He’ll be riding the momentum of a top-10 finish at the 2019 season ending World Finals into the new year. Here is how Allen has stacked up at the half-mile track for the past five years.
