“I am glad to be in third place,” he said to the media as he sat down to answer questions.
The finish is the second third-place finish at Daytona for the 29-year-old driver from Tucker, Georgia.
As the drivers motored down the track on the final lap of a greem-white-checker finish, Sieg was running fifth. He survived the wreck involving eight cars plowing down the backstretch.
Sieg moved up to third prior to NASCAR ultimately throwing the caution flag which handed the victory to Aric Almirola over Justin Allgaier.
