LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. – Sides Motorsports welcomes the return of Tim Kaeding this weekend as he joins Jason Sides as part of a two-car effort 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.
The paved Nashville oval 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,” Sides said of Charlotte. “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,” added Sides. “I think that’s what helped us conserve.”
