Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (April 12, 2022) - Jason Sides is heading to one of his favorite bullrings this weekend when Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 in Pevely, Mo., welcomes the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series on Friday and Saturday.
"I've always enjoyed racing in Pevely," he said. "It can be a track where you pound the outside wall or hug the inside wall. When it's racy like that with multiple lanes it produces great racing. We've had some success there and we're looking for a solid weekend."
Sides won a World of Outlaws feature at the high-banked oval in October 2012 on a night when he ran two features. He was victorious during the make-up program from the spring before running third in the rain-delayed Ironman 55, which had been postponed since August.
"That was a fun night as we were a contender every time we were on the track," he said. "When you've had nights like that at a track it gives you extra confidence whenever you return even if it's been a while since you know you can be successful."
Sides hustled from 24th to 16th on the opening night before placing 10th the ensuing night at the track during this event last year.
Sides competed in the Jason Johnson Classic last Saturday at Lake Ozark Speedway. He timed in 11th quickest in his group before finishing where he started - sixth - in a heat race, which was only one position out of locking into the main event. Sides also battled for a transfer spot in the Last Chance Showdown before ending with a DNF.
Last Friday's race at U.S. 36 Raceway near Osborn, Mo., rained out.
"Hopefully this weekend goes a little better with the weather and on the track," Sides said. "The nice thing about racing in Missouri last week and this week is we're close to home."
