Sides Returns to the Road as 2016 Season Begins This Week in Florida
Inside Line Promotions – BARTLETT, Tenn. (Feb. 9, 2016) – It’s back to the gypsy life for Jason Sides as his 2016 season in the United States gets underway this week.
Sides, who is fresh off his trip to compete for several weeks in Australia, will invade Volusia Speedway Park in Barberville, Fla., for the 45th annual DIRTcar Nationals with the Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions and the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series this Wednesday through Sunday.
“When everything is new it looks good and shiny and you just want to race,” he said. “It will be fun to see how it all works out, especially with the new tires.”
This week will be the first chance for Sides to test out the new tire rule featuring an 18-inch right rear as well as the change to the wicker bill on the top wing.
“We’ll see how the car feels compared to last year to see if it will help me,” he said. “I think the wicker bill change won’t have as much of an effect this week because it will create so much drag. On a track this size I’m not sure you’d need it unless it gets gut slick.”
Regardless of the rule changes Sides said he is excited to compete on the world’s fastest half-mile track, where he has recorded at least one top-10 finish each year since 2007.
“I’ve been racing here a long time,” he said. “It’s one of those places I like. I always seem to go well here.”
Sides earned two top 10s, including a fourth-place result, last year during the World of Outlaws portion of the DIRTcar Nationals.
