Sides Heading to North Dakota Tracks After Tough Week in the Midwest
By: Inside Line Promotions
EAGLE, NE — June 15, 2017 — Jason Sides is North Dakota bound for a World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series doubleheader this weekend.
He enters this weekend having earned at least one top-10 finish during eight of the last nine seasons at River Cities Speedway, where he recorded a career-best runner-up result in 2011. He is also riding a four-race top-10 streak with the World of Outlaws at Red River Valley Speedway, where he last competed in 2012.
“I always enjoy the tracks in North Dakota,” he said. “We’ve had a good amount of success at both tracks. River Cities is a place that is high banked and small. We usually go there twice a year so we have a lot of laps there. Red River is a little bigger, but we’ve only been there a handful of times in the last decade.”
Sides is hopeful the top-10 trends at the two tracks will continue this weekend after a frustrating week in the Midwest. Sides placed 20 th and 21st, respectively, last Friday and Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, before he netted a 17th -place result on Tuesday at Eagle Raceway.
“We didn’t qualify well any of the three nights during the last week and that always makes it a struggle for the rest of the night,” he said. “We need to put down a good qualifying lap each time out this weekend to set ourselves up for success.”
