Sides Motorsports in search of another Volusia Speedway Park victory

Each week we’ll be looking at the statistics of how a full-time World of Outlaws driver has performed at the DIRTcar Nationals for the past five years, leading up to the Feb. 7-9, 2020, event

Jason Sides is no stranger to Victory Lane at Volusia Speedway Park. He earned his first and only victory at the half-mile track in 2011.

Now, almost a decade later, he’ll be poised to return to victory in Barberville, FL, and end a three-year winless streak.

Sides showed growth at the end of 2019 by leading laps at Lake Ozark Speedway and earning a season best sixth-place finish. He’ll look to ride that momentum into the 2020 season. Here is how Sides has performed at Volusia Speedway Park for the last five years.
