Sieg drives the No. 39 Chevrolet Camaro for the RSS Racing team in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. Uncle Bob’s recently announced it will sponsor Sieg for 16 races in the series. “Talladega is the place everyone wants to race, and to say I’m enthusiastic to come back in the Uncle Bob’s car would be an understatement,” Sieg said. “I also can’t wait to meet fans at Uncle Bob’s in Birmingham.”
During the event, fans can enter to win tickets to the Winn-Dixie 300, a NASCAR Xfinity race at Talladega Superspeedway on May 2, courtesy of Uncle Bob’s and WZZK FM 104.7, which will broadcast live from the event. Morning radio personality Greg Burgess from “The Rick & Bubba” show will host. Fans can also take photos of Sieg’s race car.
“Talladega is a special time around here, and the enthusiasm can be felt all over the community,” said William Tierney, area manager for Uncle Bob’s Alabama facilities. “With Ryan involved this year, it’s doubly exciting for us as a company. We’re thrilled to be a part of the experience on this level.”
The younger brother of NASCAR driver Shane Sieg, Ryan Sieg made his NASCAR debut in 2009. RSS Racing has competed in NASCAR events since 2009 from its headquarters in Tucker, Ga.
