SWEDESBORO, N.J. – Robbie Price will compete for Sides Motorsports for the remainder of the 2022 World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series season.
Car owner Jason Sides will still travel with the team, serving as the crew chief and a driver coach throughout the remainder of the season.
The new pairing will be in action this Friday at Attica (Ohio) Raceway Park and Saturday at Sharon (Ohio) Speedway.
“We’re excited to have Robbie on board,” Sides said. “He’s a guy a lot like myself, willing and able to do whatever it takes to get from track to track. He’s worked on his racing equipment throughout his career and has had success while competing along the West Coast and in the Midwest.”
Price, who hails from Cobble Hill, British Columbia, Canada, is the youngest Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup feature winner in the history of the marquee event hosted by Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash. He conquered it in 2019 at the age of 21-years-old when it was an ASCS National Tour race.
The 2017 Skagit Speedway track champion has earned at least one feature victory during each of the last three seasons and in six of the last seven years.
While Price grew up racing in the Northwest, he’s no stranger to competing in the middle of the country. He tackled the ASCS National Tour as a full-time driver in 2019, placing eighth in the championship standings following a pair of triumphs.
“Everybody wants to go Outlaws racing,” he said. “I’m excited for the opportunity. I’m going into it with an open mind, but it’s hard to have too many expectations until I’m out there. I haven’t really raced this year. We’ve only done two races, which were both last weekend.
“I’m not afraid to work on stuff. Jason obviously knows what he’s doing and has been doing it a lot longer. I’ve been doing it the same way he does; just you and another guy and make it happen.”
Tim Shaffer piloted the car last Saturday at Williams Grove Speedway in Mechanicsburg, Pa., and Tuesday at Bridgeport Motorsports Park.
“I want to thank Tim for stepping in to drive the last couple of races,” Sides said. “Tim is a good friend and it was fun getting to race with him for a couple of nights before we transitioned full time with Robbie behind the wheel.”
