Recent RotoWire Articles Featuring Ryan Sieg
Austin Cindric will start on the outside of the front row and tops C.J. Radune’s Higher-Risk Lineup.
C.J. Radune writes that Harrison Burton is bargain priced this week, as he'll start fifth this week and has two top-fives from two series starts at the track.
Austin Cindric, who has four wins already, finished second at Elkhart Lake in 2019 and won this race last season.
Josh Berry starts in 28th position at Texas Motor Speedway, but with a win, three top-fives and six top-10s so far this season, he should move forward swiftly.
Fresh off of his second win of the season, Justin Allgaier will try to go back-to-back and defend his Dover win from 2020.
Past Fantasy Outlooks
The Xfinity Series veteran returns for his seventh full season campaign in this division of NASCAR. Sieg has only gotten better with each passing season, and it culminated in last year's career-best effort. Sieg nabbed two Top-5 and 12 Top-10 finishes en route to an 11th-place finish in the final driver standings. He saw his average finish improve dramatically from 19.5 the previous year to 14.6 last season. It signified better qualifying, better racing and much better finishes for this small race team. Just how much more can the No. 39 team grow in 2020? That's the key question. While they lack the speed to challenge for wins, we could see Sieg push the Top 5 and Top 10 totals a bit higher in the upcoming season.
Sieg is returning to his RSS Racing No. 39 team once again this season. He's coming off another campaign of two Top-10 and nine Top-15 finishes. It all added up to a fairly typical 16th-place finish in the final driver standings for Sieg. The 31-year-old Georgia native is now across 150 starts plateau and is finding himself a veteran among many younger faces in the Xfinity Series. That experience, albeit with a small race team, is very valuable. Sieg and his veteran crew chief, Kevin Starland, should once again be up to the task of competitive racing in this division of NASCAR. We expect similar numbers and consistency from this driver and team in 2019.
RSS Racing has been doing the most with the least for the last four seasons now. Sieg did have a bit of a step back in performance last year, but not so much as to cause concern. He still collected one Top-10 and seven Top-15 finishes en route to finishing the year 15th in the standings. This small race team is expected to deploy again in the upcoming season. Sieg now has over 130 starts of experience in this division of NASCAR, and has proven he can race with the best in this series despite his team's handicaps. At 30-years-old he's in the prime of his racing career, and we look for his good work with the family's No. 39 team to continue.
No official plans have been announced as of this writing, but it is expected that Sieg will return with his No .39 RSS Racing team in the upcoming season. It's hard to believe but he finally crossed the 100-start plateau last season. Sieg had his best campaign to-date with three Top-10 finishes, 24 Top-20 finishes and a career-best ninth-place finish in the final driver standings. The 29-year-old Georgian is find himself suddenly among the elder statesmen of the Xfinity Series as it continues to shift younger from year-to-year. For what his team lacks in equipment, Sieg more than makes up for with talent and intelligence. It makes him a very predictable and consistent performer among the lower tier of drivers in this division of NASCAR.
This small race team showed steady improvement in 2015. Sieg only nabbed one Top-10 finish, but he improved his average starting position by 2.5 spots and his average finish improved by one spot to 19.1 over what he recorded in 2014. The result was 10 Top-15 and 23 Top-20 finishes. That’s a lot of racing and finishing on the lead lap for a small, single-car team. Sieg rolled home to a career-best 11th-place finish in last year’s driver’s standings. We expect the 28-year-old driver to continue his upward trajectory, but slowing due to the neighborhood he’s entering. A few of those borderline Top 10’s should become Top-10 finishes in 2016.
Sieg completed his third full season of truck series racing in 2012. He earned one Top-10 finish en route to a career-best 15th-place finish in the driver standings. For much of the first half of the schedule, Sieg was just logging laps but it seemed he and this team really began to up their performance in the final third of the season. The 25-year-old Georgia native will be reunited with crew chief Tony Wilson and hope to build on the momentum they finished last season with. We look for Sieg to post many Top 15’s in the coming year and hopefully reduce some of those undesirable DNF’s.
