Ryan Sieg

Biography of Ryan Sieg

Ryan Sieg is an American professional stock car racing driver and team owner. He competes full-time in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, driving the Nos. 39/93 Chevrolet Camaro for RSS Racing. Ryan Sieg is the younger brother of former driver Shane Sieg.

Racing career

Sieg made his NASCAR debut in 2009, competing in the Camping World Truck Series Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway. Driving the No. 21 Dodge for GunBroker Racing, Sieg started 16th but finished 34th due to an ignition problem. At The Milwaukee Mile, Ryan Sieg would start a partial schedule for his family-owned race team. In nine races, Ryan recorded six top-20 finishes including a finish of 9th at Gateway International Raceway.

For 2010, Sieg and his brother Shane both planned to run the full Truck Series schedule in the No. 39 and No. 93 trucks, respectively. Despite having no major sponsorship, Sieg was able to run the entire season, finishing 21 of the 25 races and earning two top-10 finishes, including an 8th at Kentucky Speedway and a 9th at Dover International Speedway.

Xfinity Series

In February 2014, RSS Racing announced that Sieg would run the full Truck Series season and at least the first five Nationwide Series races in 2014. Ryan Sieg finished in the 9th spot in the season-opening DRIVE4COPD 300 at Daytona International Speedway, his first top 10 in the Nationwide Series. After Fontana, it was announced that Sieg would focus his efforts on the Nationwide Series for the remainder of the season, running for Rookie of the Year.

Sieg then earned fame himself at the July race at Daytona when Ryan Sieg drafted Kasey Kahne past teammate Regan Smith to his first Nationwide victory since 2007. In doing so, he also scored his first career top 5 finish with a 3rd-place finish, enough to put him in the first of four races in the 2014 Nationwide Dash 4 Cash event the next week at New Hampshire. Sieg was rather impressive in 2014, having some other solid runs to go along with the two top 10s to finish the season 16th in points.

In 2015, Sieg returned to the Xfinity Series with new sponsor Uncle Bob’s Self Storage at the season opener at Daytona. He finished 38th after being involved in the first big one. Sieg had a consistent season with finishing many races under 20th, including an 8th-place finish at Kansas, finishing 11th in points.

Sieg lost the sponsorship from Uncle Bob’s for 2016 but a number of sponsors filled the void. Some highlights of the season included almost qualifying for the Dash 4 Cash at Dover International Speedway, running in the top five at Daytona International Speedway, and qualifying for the inaugural Xfinity Series Chase before being knocked out after the first round.

In June 2017, Sieg recorded his best career Xfinity finish of second at Iowa Speedway. Later in the season, Sieg’s Xfinity throwback car for Darlington Raceway honored Ryan’s brother Shane Sieg, who had died two weekends prior.

Cup Series

In May 2017, Sieg was signed by BK Racing to drive their No. 83 Toyota Camry in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series at Dover International Speedway for the AAA 400 Drive for Autism, his MENCS debut. A month later, he replaced Gray Gaulding in BK’s No. 23 Camry for the FireKeepers Casino 400 at Michigan. Two years later, he returned to the Cup Series at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, driving the No. 27 for Premium Motorsports.
