JASON SIDES WINS HIS FIRST 410 SPRINT CAR RACE IN EAST BAY OPENER

 

TAMPA, FL….1/30/07…..Jason Sides had the biggest smile on his face when Todd Hutto, one of the East Bay Raceway Park owners, congratulated  him in victory lane.  Sides couldn’t wait to tell him, “I love taking your money!”

            Tuesday was opening night of the three-day 410 Sprint Car 31st Annual Winternationals here and a block-buster field of 52 of the best drivers were on hand.  But, it was the Bartlett, Tennessee, pony-tailed, Sides that impressed everyone with his mastery of lapped traffic in the first 19 non-stop green flag laps of the 25-lap feature while being hounded by Danny Lasoski.

            Although eight other drivers timed ahead of Sides, luck was on his side, because three drivers who timed ahead of him failed to qualify through their heats.   With six inverted to start the A-Main, ‘lucky’ Jason  started on the pole.

            “The track was really good tonight…..Al (Varnadore) did a great job.  I made zero changes on my car, except for a tire change for time trials,” explained Sides.  “Credit goes to my Mom and Dad, my wife Farrah and daughter Skylar for their support.  I couldn’t do this without my sponsor WTS Tractor Service and my crew Wade Oliver and Sumo.”

            When asked about the heavy lapped traffic, he admitted,  “There were two lapped cars running side by side around lap 14, and that scared me, because I could see someone trying to challenge.   I didn’t think I could get through, but I did.”

 His Maxim chassis was not new, it was his “old faithful” and he did get laps on the new Don Ott engine the night before in the Sprint Bandit race.  The No. 7S was equipped with Hoosier tires, Weld Wheels, VRP shocks and a FSR radiator.

Sides and Lasoski shared the front row at the start, followed by Lance Dewease and Tim Shaffer in row two with Craig Dollansky and Greg Hodnett in row three.  It was Sides who took command and set a fast pace, lapping his first car on lap five.  Most of the time, Sides was low and Lasoski tried several times to set him up, pulling equal at times, but never was recorded  as leading a lap. 

As the two diced their way through traffic, they finally had a bit of clear sailing from lap 16 through lap 19.  They were exiting turn four with Lasoski a car length back, when Lasoski lost the handle and spun to the inside to bring out the only yellow flag of the event.

Tim Shaffer was running third at the time and advanced to second with Lasoski’s error with Dewease moving to third.   They stayed in that order to the finish with Dollansky crossing fourth and Hodnett staying with a top five finish.   Rounding out the top 10 it was Chad Kemenah, Zach Chappell. Jason Solwold, Lucas Wolfe (up from 24th) and Terry McCarl finishing tenth after starting 22nd.

Heats went to Randy Hannagan, Tom Busch, Mark Smith and Danny Smith.  The last chance race went to Michael Dehner.  The C-Main sent Jeff Busby, Brady Short, Robbie Vaugh and Jeff Vandusen to the B-Main.  Dustin Lindquist, Jesse Hockett , Kemenah and Wolf found their way to the A-Main by advancing from the B-Main.

Hodnett topped the qualifying efforts with a lap of 12.346, far off the track record of 11.638 set by Kemenah in 2003.

                                                Thanks, Jean Lynch for East Bay Raceway Park
