Inside Line Promotions – KANSAS CITY, Kan. (Oct. 17, 2022) – The penultimate event of the season for Sides Motorsports driver Robbie Price is this Saturday when Williams Grove Speedway hosts the Champion Racing Oil National Open.
The World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event at the half-mile oval in Mechanicsburg, Pa., was postponed from earlier this month because of inclement weather.
“Hopefully we can put it in the show,” Price said. “I don’t have many laps at that track and it’s certainly one that times time to figure out. I’m looking forward to getting more experience there this weekend and hopefully a solid result.”
The team is coming off a pair of 20th-place finishes with the World of Outlaws last weekend in the Midwest.
Price qualified 14th quickest in his group on Friday at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb. He gained a position to finish sixth in a heat race before securing the fourth-and-final lock-in position into the feature during the Last Chance Showdown. Price gained a handful of positions in the A Main to end 20th.
“On Friday we went out late in qualifying and I didn’t lay down as good of a lap as I needed to and then we were one spot out in the heat race,” he said. “We made it through the LCS, but didn’t have the balance in the A Main.”
The weekend concluded on Saturday at Lakeside Speedway with the Lakeside Speedway Showdown presented by Micro-Lite. Price timed in 24th overall after the team had to change an engine following hot laps. He locked directly into the feature by advancing from sixth to fifth place in a heat race. The night ended with a 20th-place finish in the feature.
“The second night we missed our qualifying deal because of the engine change so we had to go at the end and only got one lap,” he said. “We didn’t qualify where we needed to and we were buried. In the A Main we struggled with the fuel in the car and how I drove the race. It wasn’t a terrible night, but it was a struggle.”
