Inside Line Promotions – KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 26, 2021) – Jason Sides is down to the penultimate weekend of the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season.
“Going into the end of the year you want to have some good runs,” he said. “It’d be nice to have a couple of top 10s to help you get through the offseason.”
Sides and the Outlaws venture to Lawton Speedway in Lawton, Okla., on Friday before heading to Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, on Saturday for the Texas Outlaw Nationals. He placed 13th at Lawton Speedway and ninth at Devil’s Bowl Speedway last year.
“I did like Lawton when we went there last year,” he said. “We had a good run there besides giving up a little at the end of the feature. I feel like we can have a good run this weekend. And at Devil’s Bowl, we’ve qualified well and raced well there. I’m looking forward to both tracks.”
Sides ran into misfortune last Friday at Lakeside Speedway, which hosted the FVP Platinum Battery Showdown. He qualified 22nd quickest and placed sixth in a heat race to miss locking into the A Main by only one spot. However, Sides was well on his way to transferring into the main event as he was running second in the Last Chance Showdown when a flat tire ended his night early.
“It wasn’t a good night for us,” he said. “I really don’t know what happened there to the tire. We kept looking and couldn’t find anything on the tire. It had good tread, but the thing blew up so we probably cut it on something.”
