BARTLETT, Tenn. – Sides Motorsports is bound for Central Pennsylvania this week for a trio of races with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.
Jason Sides will be behind the wheel of the No. 7s on Wednesday at Lincoln Speedway in Abbottstown, Pa., during the Duramax Drydene Gettysburg Clash before Tim Shaffer takes over on Friday and Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., during the Morgan Cup.
Shaffer will also drive the car next Tuesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park in Swedesboro, N.J.
“I’m excited to have Tim driving for us this weekend,” Sides said. “I won the King of 360s at East Bay in 2002 and he won the 410 race there the next weekend. I met him a couple of weeks later. Shortly after that we started hanging out and it’s been 20 years.”
Shaffer has earned a pair of World of Outlaws wins at Williams Grove Speedway – in 2001 and most recently in 2019.
“Tim has driven for us a couple of times and is someone you know will be competitive, but not make bad decisions to tear up the car for no reason,” Sides said. “He’ll race smart, but if there’s a hole he’ll go for it.”
Sides placed 15th during his most recent visit to Lincoln Speedway in July 2020.
