Inside Line Promotions – PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 10, 2022) – Sides Motorsports driver Robbie Price took a step forward last weekend during the Nittany Showdown at Port Royal Speedway.
Price struggled during his debut at the half-mile track earlier this season, but improved his results and level of comfort during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series starts on Friday and Saturday.
“It wasn’t too bad and was better than I expected,” he said. “We learned the last time we were there plus we’ve run a lot more half-mile stuff since then.”
Price qualified 12th quickest in his group on Friday before he advanced from sixth to fifth in a heat race, locking him into the main event. He placed 24th in the feature.
Saturday started out similar as Price timed in 11th quickest in his group. He ended sixth in a heat race to miss a spot in the A Main by only one position. That relegated him to the Last Chance Showdown, in which a fourth-place run earned a transfer into the back of the main event.
“We qualified decent both nights in our flight,” he said. “The first night in the heat race went a little better. The second night me and Kasey (Kahne) were racing hard and he got the upper hand. But in the LCS I felt pretty good.
“It took me a while to get comfortable in the A Main both nights. I just have to learn how to race in the dirty air better. I think that comes with experience so it was valuable to get feature laps both nights at Port Royal.”
Price gained a pair of positions to finish a career-best 21st on Saturday.
Up next for the team are races Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., and Saturday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., for the Lakeside Speedway Showdown presented by Micro-Lite.
“I think I’ve been to both tracks for 360 races,” Price said. “I’ve ran well at Lakeside. It’ll be a different challenge this weekend with it being Outlaws races though so hopefully we can start off strong each night.”
