Sides Looking Forward to This Weekend's World of Outlaws Races at Fremont and I-96
Inside Line Promotions - LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (May 31, 2016) - Jason Sides has one of his most successful tracks on tap for this weekend.
Sides will head to Fremont Speedway in Fremont, Ohio, on Friday for the Kistler Engines Smackdown before tackling I-96 Speedway in Lake Odessa, Mich., on Saturday for the Rumble in Michigan with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.
Sides, who captured a fourth-place finish in 2014 during his most recent race at Fremont Speedway, has earned a top-six result at I-96 Speedway during five of the past six years. He was victorious in 2011 with podiums in 2010 and 2012, a fifth-place finish in 2013 and a sixth-place result last season.
"Some tracks you just get around better than others," he said. "We seem to have a good package figured out for I-96 Speedway so hopefully that continues this weekend. It certainly gives you more confidence going to a track where you've consistently ran well."
Sides is coming off an up-and-down week with the World of Outlaws. Last Tuesday (May 24) he qualified 22nd quickest, placed sixth in a heat race and third in the Last Chance Showdown to transfer into the back of the main event at New Egypt Speedway in New Egypt, N.J. Sides then advanced from 23 rd to 18th in the Jersey Outlaw Classic main event.
Last Friday Sides timed in ninth quickest overall at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C., for the Circle K/NOS Energy Drink Outlaw Showdown. He ended fourth in a heat race and 17th in the feature.
The rough week came to a close on Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway, where Sides hit his head during his qualifying attempt and sat out the remainder of the night for precautionary reasons.
"We haven't had the best week so it's nice to have a couple of tracks coming up in Fremont and I-96 where we have been successful," he said. "The goal is to go into each night and put a good qualifying lap down to set ourselves up to be in contention at the end of the night."
