Barberville, Fla. – Feb. 13, 2011 – An emotional Sunday night at Volusia Speedway Park in the Sprint Car finale of the 40th Annual DIRTcar Nationals by University of Northwestern Ohio wrapped up with Jason Sides and his daughter celebrating in victory lane.
After splitting the first four nights, all eyes were on Steve Kinser and Sammy Swindell to see if one of the legendary drivers could win for the third time in five nights. For Craig Dollansky, Sunday night was about redemption after going out three laps short of victory on Saturday. In the end, it was Sides who capped off a strong season-opening weekend with the ninth victory of his career in the Wetherington Tractor Services Weld Racing wheel equipped Maxim.
“This is a very special win for me,” said Sides, of Bartlett, Tenn. “It means the world to me that my family could be here. It’s the first time that my wife, daughter and parents were here to see me win a race.”
