Inside Line Promotions – LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (May 29, 2019) – Sides Motorsports welcomes the return of Tim Kaeding this weekend when he will join Jason Sides as drivers in a two-car team during the Music City Outlaw Nationals.
For the first time in history the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series will invade Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway in Nashville, Tenn., on Friday and Saturday for the spectacle. The paved track will have dirt covering it.
“It will be something neat and something to do,” Sides said. “At the same time it will be different because it’s dirt on asphalt. Anything can happen when you have that scenario.”
The track is the closest to Sides’ shop – only a two and a half hour journey. That’s a welcome travel schedule following a recent busy week with four races in three states during a one-week span.
Sides highlighted the action by scoring a top-10 result on Saturday at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C., where he maneuvered from 15th to eighth during the Patriot Nationals finale.
“The biggest thing is you could see the track going black after the late models,” he said. “We tried staying out of the black for the first eight or 10 laps knowing it’s been pretty abrasive. The goal is to keep the tires under you and not get too sideways. We were in tire conservation mode more than anything. The bottom was pretty decent the first little bit. The other guys went directly to the top in the black. I think that’s what helped us conserve.”
Sides also placed 22nd at Bridgeport Speedway in Swedesboro, N.J., on May 21; he finished 20th at The Dirt Track at Charlotte on Friday; and he ended seventh in the Last Chance Showdown to miss a spot into the Memorial Day Spectacle presented by KOI Auto Parts main event on Monday at Lawrenceburg Speedway.
