Inside Line Promotions – HAUBSTADT, Ind. (May 16, 2016) – Jason Sides has a busy week on tap with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series.

Sides heads east to face the vaunted Pennsylvania Posse starting on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., for the Gettysburg Clash. Sides hasn’t made the feature during the event in the past three years.

“Qualifying is probably as important during that race than any,” he said. “We haven’t qualified well there and when you get behind the eight ball with so many talented drivers it’s very hard to overcome that. We need a good draw and a great qualifying lap to set ourselves up.”

Sides will then head to Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., for the Morgan Cup, which is contested on Friday and Saturday. He finished 14th twice at the half-mile oval last year and is looking for his first podium finish at Williams Grove Speedway since placing second in 2012.

“Williams Grove is a technical track where qualifying is also important,” he said. “It can be tough to pass people in dirty air so it’s important to set yourself up toward the front of the field.”

This weekend wraps up on Sunday at Weedsport Speedway in Weedsport, N.Y., for the Empire State Challenge, an event in which Sides maneuvered from 24th to 15th last year during his debut at the track.

“We learned a couple of things last year that will hopefully help us leading into this weekend’s race,” he said.

Sides is coming off a weekend in Indiana where qualifying got him behind the eight ball from the start of each night.

Sides timed in 20th quickest on Friday at Plymouth Speedway in Plymouth before he finished sixth in a heat race. He then advanced from 17th to a 13th-place result in the main event.

On Saturday, Sides qualified 24th quickest, placed sixth in a heat race and ended 19th in the main event at Tri-State Speedway.

“Qualifying was our struggle last weekend,” he said. “It’s not like NASCAR where you get two hours of practice. You have to get your car near perfect after a couple of warm-up laps so some nights you just don’t hit it right away. We had to come from the back in the heat race and the feature each night. It’s really tough to get good results when you start so far back because everyone is so even.”
