Inside Line Promotions - PORT ROYAL, Pa. (Oct. 13, 2020) - Jason Sides is looking forward to returning to a pair of race tracks in the Midwest this weekend.
World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series events on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., and Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway in Eldon, Mo., during the Jason Johnson Classic mark the final visit to the middle of the country this season.
"We've enjoyed good results at both tracks and this is the final trip to the Midwest so we're aiming for a successful weekend," he said. "Just like always, it starts with laying down a good qualifying lap each night."
Sides finished a career-best second at Lakeside Speedway in 2013. He established a new track record and placed sixth in the A Main at Lake Ozark Speedway last year.
Sides is coming off a frustrating weekend at Port Royal Speedway during the Nittany Showdown. He qualified outside the top 15 in his group each night, which buried him in the racing program.
"Friday didn't go very well and I tried like hell the second night," he said. "We even changed cars and made a lot of steps to try to be better. I couldn't run the top in turns three and four, which really hurt us."
