RICHMOND, Va. — Ryan Sieg netted his fifth career top-5 finish and second in 2019 Friday evening in the Toyota Care 250 at Richmond Raceway. Sieg finished fourth in the season-opening race at Daytona International Speedway nearly two months ago. It his Sieg’s fifth top-10 this season, which is a career best.
Sieg, who has drove in under-funded equipment for his entire career, his starting to gain some attention after his fifth-place effort at the .75-mile Virginia short track.
“It (the race) was great. The car was great all night, leaned a lot on experience. We don’t have all of the resources and all of the tools, so we leaned on Shane Wilson (crew chief) and Cowyboy, and myself to get a good car here and get it dialed in.
“This is like a win for us, at a short track, a top-5 is huge. We’ve only done that at superspeedways and it’s pretty exciting. It’s like a win for us. We just keep getting better and better each week.”
2019 is Ryan Sieg’s seventh year driving for team owner Rod Sieg. The driver of the No. 32 Chevrolet has completed all but one lap in Xfinity Series competition so far this season.
