Inside Line Promotions – PEVELY, Mo. (Aug. 9, 2016) – The biggest event of the season is on tap for Jason Sides, who is slated to tackle the 56th annual 5-Hour ENERGY Knoxville Nationals Wednesday through Saturday at Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa.

Sides has driven into the A Main at the $150,000-to-win event six times in his career with a top result of 12th in 2010.

“We’ve got everything as fresh as possible,” he said. “Hopefully we’ll get a good pill draw and have a good qualifying effort and go from there. That sets your whole week.”

Sides is coming off a challenging weekend with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series during the Ironman 55 at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55.

“It was kind of average,” he said. “It started out all right. The first night was going to be good.”

Sides kicked off the doubleheader by qualifying 12th quickest on Friday. He then finished fourth in a heat race to line up 12th in the main event.

“Two or three different guys spun in turns one and two,” he said. “Brent Marks spun around and we had nowhere to go and got into him. That knocked the nose wing down and we had to restart at the back.”

Sides rebounded from the crash to post a 14th-place result.

He returned to the high-banked track on Saturday and qualified 15th quickest before placing fifth in a heat race.

“I thought we had a shot at the top two in the heat race to get in the dash and the next thing I knew we were fifth,” he said.

That lined Sides up 19th for the 55-lap feature.

“I got lapped and we had a caution just as the leaders passed the start-finish line,” he said. “That kept us down a lap so every time we’d have a caution we had to go back to the back for the restart.”

Sides rallied to record a 15th-place finish.
