Sides Scores Best Finish of the Season With World of Outlaws During Spring Classic
Inside Line Promotions - PEVELY, Mo. (April 23, 2018) - Jason Sides recorded his best result of the season on Saturday at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 during the Spring Classic.
The night began with Sides setting quick time during World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series qualifying for the first time this season. He then won a heat race from the pole position to earn a spot into the dash.
"It started off like it's supposed to," he said. "We had a good run to get qualified. That puts you in a position to win the heat and get in the dash. Then we drew the wrong position in the dash."
Sides pulled the second-highest number - seven - during the dash redraw, which lined him up on the inside of the fourth row for the dash. He advanced two positions to place fifth.
Sides ran fifth for the first part of the main event before he passed Donny Schatz for fourth place exiting turn two. Unfortunately, a caution came out before the lap was completed. Soon after restarting the race the track took rubber and passing was at a premium.
"One time I ran in on the guy in front of me and he checked up more than I anticipated, which got me tight," he said. "I pushed out of the rubber and someone got by me for fifth. We ran sixth the rest of the race.
"I wanted a top five, which would be like a win for us right now. We just missed it by one spot. But sixth for the track and everything that happened was good. It was new dirt and they weren't sure what it was going to do. With that many cars it put a toll on it."
The sixth-place result was Sides's best finish of the season and was a step forward after how the weekend began the previous night at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. Sides qualified 21 st quickest before he ended fifth in a heat race to lock into the 17th starting position for the A Main.
"That place got so slick and was up against the wall in qualifying," he said. "I was trying to be a little conservative and we didn't get as good of a qualifying lap as we needed. Qualifying is what sets your night up and is so important. We made it through the heat. Then the feature was pretty good. There was a lot of racing going on."
Sides rallied from 17th to a 12th-place result.
Sunday's race at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., rained out.
This week features action on Wednesday at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige, Texas, and on Friday and Saturday at Devil's Bowl Speedway in Mesquite, Texas, for the Texas Outlaw Nationals.
QUICK RESULTS -
April 20 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Qualifying: 21; Heat race: 5 (6); Feature: 12 (17).

Sides Facing World of Outlaws Tripleheader if Weather Cooperates
Inside Line Promotions - BARTLETT, Tenn. (April 16, 2018) - Half of the 18 scheduled World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series races have been rained out this season, which is the second worst start to a season Jason Sides has witnessed.
"I forget what year it was, but rain cancelled all of the California swing," he said. "We drove out there and went to Phoenix and sat for two weeks. Fortunately my dad was with me and we stopped at some casinos and we hit for a bit so that paid for my two weeks of sitting out there."
The weather this weekend is shaping up nicely as the World of Outlaws has a tripleheader on tap. Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., will host a show on Friday before Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., showcases the Spring Classic on Saturday. Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., wraps up the weekend with a race on Sunday.
"I'm hoping that we have some good runs," he said. "It's tough not racing because you can't get into a rhythm."
Sides placed sixth in April 2009 during his most recent World of Outlaws race at Riverside International Speedway, which is a short drive from where he lives.
"It'll give a lot of our family and friends an opportunity to watch us race," he said. "Being only 15 to 20 minutes from the track will allow the people who have been around us growing up and racing to come out."
Sides recorded a victory at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in 2012 and he posted a runner-up result there in 2015 to highlight the last few appearances. He also placed 10th at the bullring last year.
"It's a fun race track," he said. "Whether you're good or bad it's a fun track to get around."
Sides has scored a top-10 finish during three of his last six races at Tri-State Speedway, which had its originally scheduled date last weekend rained out.
"I'm glad they're making it up because we need to get these races in," he said. "Running at Tri-State Speedway is no different than most tracks. If you qualify decent and start up front you can be successful. "

Sides Eager for Midwest Races at Jacksonville and Tri-State This Weekend
Inside Line Promotions - QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. (April 11, 2018) - Jason Sides is back in the Midwest and he's hopeful Mother Nature will cooperate.
Sides is scheduled to compete this Friday at Jacksonville Speedway in Jacksonville, Ill., and Saturday at Tri-State Speedway in Haubstadt, Ind., with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series. However, seven of the 16 scheduled shows this season have been rained out for 'The Greatest Show on Dirt.'
"Hopefully we can have some good weather and can get some racing in," he said. "We've only got to race four times in the last six weeks."
Sides has been consistent at both tracks on this weekend's radar. He posted an eighth-place result at Jacksonville Speedway in 2014 during the series debut before placing 11th in 2016. Sides has earned a top-10 finish during three of the last six races at Tri-State Speedway.
"Just like at most tracks our night will be dictated by qualifying," he said. "If we qualify well we'll set ourselves up for success."
Sides wrapped up the World of Outlaws spring western swing last Saturday at Arizona Speedway during the Arizona Desert Shootout. He qualified 15th quickest and placed fifth in a heat race to lock into the 15 th starting position for the A Main.
"It wasn't bad, but the bottom of the track went away pretty quick," he said. "There was some meat down there early, especially off the front straightaway. Then it got really slick around the bottom. I passed a few cars. We had a couple of restarts and it was one of those nights when I was in the wrong spot on each restart. About the last six or eight laps it rubbered up through the middle to top and maybe I should have been up there earlier."
Sides recorded a 14th-place finish.

Sides Aiming for Top Five During Arizona Desert Shootout at Arizona Speedway
Inside Line Promotions - BARTLETT, Tenn. (April 2, 2018) - Jason Sides is refreshed following a week off to celebrate the holiday weekend with his family.
"We had a great time together," he said. "I enjoy spending time with my family whenever we get the chance."
Sides will return to action this Saturday at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz., during the Arizona Desert Shootout with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series. It will mark his third visit to the track in the last three years.
"Last year when we were there it started out really good," he said. "There was a top and a bottom groove and later in the night the top was way around the top, but you could diamond off turns three and four. It made for a really good track."
Sides placed 11th at the oval during his debut in 2016 before he qualified third quickest, won a heat race, placed fifth in the dash and ended fifth in the A Main last year.
His goal for this weekend is to continue to progress at the bullring.
"A top five would be great," he said. "Getting qualified well is the biggest thing because that sets you up for the whole night."
Sides produced his best qualifying effort of the season during his most recent race, when he timed in third quickest.

Sides Motorsports Nets Two World of Outlaws Heat Race Wins in Bakersfield
Inside Line Promotions - BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (March 26, 2018) - Sides Motorsports picked up a pair of heat race victories last Saturday at Bakersfield Speedway during a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series show.
Both Jason Sides and Tim Kaeding had strong starts to the night as Kaeding timed in second quickest with Sides posting a season-best third-place effort in time trials. Sides and Kaeding followed that up by each winning a heat race to lock into the dash.
"Qualifying sets everything up and then to win a heat race and make the dash is the first goal of every night," Sides said. "This was the best night Tim and I had going during this West Coast swing."
Kaeding placed fourth in the dash while Sides ended eighth.
"Tim was starting toward the front in the A Main so we mostly left his car alone, but we tightened mine up," Sides said. "I think Tim had a top-five car, but someone drove through him and broke his left rear shock."
Kaeding spent most of the race battling between third and 10th place with wild restarts jumbling up the field. He closed the race with a 10th-place finish, which marked his third straight top 10.
Sides struggled with a tight race car and he faded to an 18th -place result.
"I want to thank Tim for driving for us the last few weeks," he said. "It was a lot of fun working with him and he did a great job of running well."
Sides will be off this weekend before resuming competition on April 7 at Arizona Speedway in Queen Creek, Ariz., during the Arizona Desert Shootout with the World of Outlaws.

Sides Motorsports Garners First Top Five of Season as Kaeding Places Fifth at Stockton
Inside Line Promotions - STOCKTON, Calif. (March 19, 2018) - Sides Motorsports captured its first top-five finish of the season last Saturday during the FVP Platinum Battery Western Spring Shootout at Stockton Dirt Track.
Tim Kaeding rallied from 13th to earn a fifth-place result on a rough track that had been hammered with rain, which forced Friday's World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series opener to be rained out.
"With all the rain they've had it was wet on Saturday," Jason Sides said. "We didn't qualify as well as I wanted to. Then Tim and I were in the same heat. He got going pretty good. Giovanni (Scelzi) and Paul (McMahan) were duking it out in front of me and I thought maybe I could get by them both. The track was a little narrow so there wasn't a whole lot of passing and we never had an opportunity."
Kaeding timed in 11th quickest and Sides was 13th quickest in their group before Kaeding placed fourth in a heat race and Sides seventh. That locked Kaeding into the 13th starting position for the A Main, while Sides was relegated to the Last Chance Showdown.
"I thought we had a good shot at transferring," Sides said. "It was one of those things where the track was slick coming off and on the start someone got sideways and came across. It slowed our momentum and I don't think we had a caution. We were getting to traffic and I felt like I could have raced for that final transfer position, but we ran out of laps."
Sides ended fifth in the consolation race to miss a transfer by only one position.
Meanwhile, Kaeding was on a mission in the main event. He hustled into the top five by maneuvering around the holes on the tricky track.
"He was good on the bottom," Sides said. "He could run in there and get underneath guys. There was a big hole in turn one where you had to go above it or below it. Some guys would go in high and get to the middle of the corner and get really tight. He worked by them that way. He actually made some passes around the top of guys in turns one and two on restarts, too."
Both Sides and Kaeding will be in action for Sides Motorsports this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., for the Ocean Outlaw Showdown and Saturday at Bakersfield Speedway in Bakersfield, Calif., with the World of Outlaws.
QUICK RESULTS -
March 17 - Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif. (Jason Sides) - Qualifying: 13; Heat race: 7 (7); B Main: 5 (5).

Sides Motorsports Garners Top 10 in Tulare With Tim Kaeding Behind the Wheel
Inside Line Promotions - TULARE, Calif. (March 12, 2018) - Jason Sides enjoyed a different perspective last Friday during a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series event.
Sides focused on his role as car owner after his own qualifying result was near the back of the pack during the opening night of a doubleheader at Thunderbowl Raceway, where veteran Tim Kaeding also piloted a Sides Motorsports entry.
"I wanted to qualify better, but it didn't go as well as we hoped in the backup car," Sides said. "Our stuff wasn't running as well as it should and we decided it was going to be too risky to try to come from the back in a heat race and the Last Chance Showdown to make the A Main so we parked it for the remainder of the night."
Kaeding timed in eighth quickest in his group and he finished where he started - fourth - in a heat race to lock into the 16th starting position for the 35-lap A Main.
"We made changes all night freeing it up and getting him comfortable in it," Sides said. "Late in the race he was a lot better. I think it was a pretty good run."
Kaeding maneuvered to an eighth-place finish, which earned him the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.
Saturday's race rained out.
Both Sides and Kaeding will compete for Sides Motorsports this Friday and Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., during the FVP Platinum Battery Western Spring Shootout with the World of Outlaws.
"I like racing there," Sides said. "Last year we started off real well and led the first lap of the race. We had a power steering line rub a bolt and cut it so hopefully we're just as fast with a little more luck this year."

March 9 - Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif. (Tim Kaeding) - Qualifying: 8; Heat race: 4 (4); Feature: 8 (16).

Sides Welcomes Tim Kaeding to Sides Motorsports Entry This Weekend in Tulare
Inside Line Promotions - LAS VEGAS (March 5, 2018) - Jason Sides is putting one of the Kings of the Thunderbowl into a Sides Motorsports entry this weekend.
Tim Kaeding will pilot a No. 7s sprint car on Friday and Saturday at Thunderbowl Raceway in Tulare, Calif., during a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series doubleheader. Kaeding has four career Outlaws wins at the bullring.
"I'm excited about it," Sides said. "I want to see him run well, especially for our sponsors out there. Tim is one of the top drivers at any race in Tulare so this should be a fun weekend."
Sides competed last Wednesday and Thursday at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas. Qualifying put him behind the figurative eight ball on both nights of the FVP Outlaw Showdown.
"The first night it was a bit rough and I thought we got through there good and we ended at the back," he said. "On the second night the top got so far around there I slowed down to the hit the bottom. I thought I hit it good, but I was still several tenths off."
Sides qualified 17th and 19th, respectively, and he placed ninth in a heat race both nights. He won the C Main before placing 10th in the Last Chance Showdown on Wednesday. Sides scratched from feature competition on Thursday.
The SoCal Showdown last Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, Calif., rained out. It was the third World of Outlaws event in the first eight scheduled races to be cancelled because of inclement weather.

Sides Invading Las Vegas and Perris This Week With World of Outlaws
Inside Line Promotions - BARTLETT, Tenn. (Feb. 26, 2018) - Jason Sides is heading to one of his most successful tracks this week with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.
Sides will compete on Wednesday and Thursday at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas in Las Vegas for the FVP Outlaw Showdown before the weekend concludes on Saturday at Perris Auto Speedway in Perris, Calif., for the SoCal Showdown.
"We've been strong in Las Vegas quite a few times," he said. "It's a big track where momentum is important. We've been close to winning there and have picked up some podium finishes so hopefully we can get back to that level of success this week."
Sides has recorded seven top-five finishes and nine top 10s in 15 races at the half-mile oval since 2009, including three straight runner-up results in 2012 and 2013. He also secured at least one top-10 finish at the track each season for eight straight years before a weekend of bad luck stopped the streak last season.
Sides will venture to Perris Auto Speedway on Saturday for the first of four straight weeks in California. He has improved his result at the track each of the last five years, including netting a top-10 finish the last three seasons.
"Perris is a big track with tight corners," he said. "Momentum can be critical there as well. The biggest thing is to get qualified well and stay up front all night. That's important every night, but at some tracks like Perris it's key for having a great result."
Last weekend's World of Outlaws races in Texas were rained out.

Sides Aiming for Smooth Weekend in Texas With World of Outlaws
Inside Line Promotions - GIBSONTON, Fla. (Feb. 19, 2018) - Jason Sides is seeking a smooth weekend as he returns to World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series competition this Friday and Saturday in Texas.
Sides will compete on Friday at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige and on Saturday at LoneStar Speedway in Kilgore for the East Texas LoneStar Shootout.
"Our debut at Cotton Bowl Speedway in 2016 was follow the leader without much passing and when we ran at LoneStar Speedway last year we were caught up in a crash," he said. "Hopefully we can have a couple of good nights this weekend and get back on the right track."
Sides was hampered by mechanical issues last weekend during the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s at East Bay Raceway Park.
The tripleheader began on Thursday when Sides placed fifth in a heat race before he won a B Main to transfer into the 17th starting position for the 25-lap A Main.
"We were really good early in the feature," he said. "We picked up a few spots in the first couple of laps and were battling for a top 10 most of the race."
Unfortunately, a mechanical problem sent the team pitside with only four laps remaining while running 10th. Sides was credited with a 23 rd-place result.
The team changed engines prior to Friday's show to a 23-year-old engine Sides has relied on sparingly. Sides placed sixth in a heat race, second in a B main and 17th in the main event.
The weekend wrapped up on Saturday with Sides finishing fifth in a heat race to miss locking into the A Main by only one position. However, late in the race the engine developed a problem that was unable to be fixed and Sides was forced to scratch from the remainder of the event.
"We certainly didn't get the results out of the weekend like we wanted, but it's always a great weekend to spend down there with Kimball Wetherington and some of the people from Wetherington Tractor Service, Inc., as well as all of our fans and friends in that part of the country," he said. "Now we'll shift gears back to World of Outlaws competition in Texas before we head to the West Coast for a few weeks."

Sides Venturing to East Bay for Laid Back Event Supporting Long-Time Sponsor
Inside Line Promotions - BARBERVILLE, Fla. (Feb. 12, 2018) - Jason Sides is looking forward to a relaxing weekend at the Ronald Laney Memorial King of the 360s, which is hosted by East Bay Raceway Park this Thursday through Saturday.
"One of our biggest sponsors, Kimball Wetherington of Wetherington Tractor Service, Inc., is based down there and supports the track and event so we always look forward to spending time with him," he said. "It's a laid back weekend where we go to have fun. Of course we want to win, too."
Sides, who was the event champion in 2002, won a preliminary night at the bullring near Tampa, Fla., in 2015 and 2016. He placed fourth and 18 th in preliminary competition last year before ending eight during the finale.
The event will be one of the rare 360ci winged sprint car races of the season for Sides, whose 2018 campaign with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series began last weekend at Volusia Speedway Park during the DIRTcar Nationals.
Sides entered the week with at least one top-10 finish during the event for the last 11 years.
"We didn't qualify well and that put us behind to start each night," he said. "We raced our way into the show each night, but didn't put ourselves in a good enough position to capture a top 10. The track was heavy and fast the first two nights so it was tough to move forward."
Sides qualified 20th quickest and placed sixth in a heat race on Friday during the World of Outlaws season opener. That missed a lock-in position by only one spot and relegated Sides to the Last Chance Showdown. He placed third in the race to transfer into the 23rd starting position for the A Main.
"When you qualify back there you have to make up a lot of ground in the heat race," he said. "Otherwise you're buried in the Last Chance Showdown and then the main event if you make it in. We did what we could on a heavy, fast track."
Sides advanced a handful of positions to place 18th.
Similar circumstances played out on Saturday as Sides timed in 30 th quickest in qualifying, advanced from eighth to sixth in a heat race to again narrowly miss a lock-in position to the A Main. He charged from 10th to third place in the Last Chance Showdown and maneuvered from 23rd to 20th in the main event.
The weekend wrapped up on Sunday with Sides qualifying 11th quickest. A sixth-place heat race finish locked him into the A Main since there were only three heats.
"All three nights was the same thing," he said. "When you're starting at the back like that it doesn't give you many options because you're constantly surrounded by a lot of cars. Dirty air makes it tough to maneuver and just when you get rolling someone can chop you on the bottom lane or slide up in front of you on the top. Once you lose a little momentum it really slows you for a couple of laps."
QUICK RESULTS -
Feb. 9 - Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla. - Qualifying: 20; Heat race: 6 (5); B Main: 3 (3); Feature: 18 (23).
Feb. 10 - Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla. - Qualifying: 30; Heat race: 6 (8); B Main: 3 (10); Feature: 20 (23).

Sides Seeking to Extend Top-10 Streak at DIRTcar Nationals to 12 Straight Years

Inside Line Promotions - BARTLETT, Tenn. (Feb. 5, 2018) - Jason Sides will once again start his season in sunny Florida.
Sides is slated to compete this Wednesday through Sunday at Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville for the DIRTcar Nationals. The first two nights are sanctioned by the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions and the final three nights open the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series season.
"You're always itching to go racing by this time of the year," he said. "We'll use Wednesday night as a test session and depending on that night we'll see if we race Thursday. The ultimate focus is to be prepared for the World of Outlaws opener on Friday."
Sides has earned a lot of success at the half-mile oval, where he has produced at least one top-10 finish each year during the DIRTcar Nationals since 2007.
"Volusia is a big, fast track where momentum is important," he said. "If you can set yourself up to start on the front row of a heat race, dash and/or the A Main you're in the best position because of clean air."
Sides qualified third quickest, fourth quickest and 12th quickest during the three World of Outlaws races at Volusia Speedway Park last season. He won his heat race during two of the three nights. Unfortunately, a broken nose wing on the opening night and a violent crash during the finale hampered his results.
"We set ourselves up well last year, but luck wasn't on our side," he said. "We had a top-five car both of those nights when circumstances happened that changed our fate. But we know how to get around that track and if we have that same level of speed this year I'm excited to see how well we can do."
Sides was victorious at the track in 2011.
