1 Comment

Xfinity Series driver Ryan Sieg will have CMR Construction & Roofing as the full-time primary sponsor on his No. 39 Chevrolet next year, Ryan Sieg Racing announced Friday.

It will be the first time Sieg has had a yearlong primary sponsor in the Xfinity Series, which he has competed in full time since 2014.

The news comes with Sieg in the midst of his best season yet. He already has a career-best two top fives and six top 10s ahead of tonight’s race at Daytona International Speedway.

“I am really excited for the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season,” Sieg said in a release. “We are a small family owned and operated team, and we’ve worked really hard to put together a great program. I can’t thank CMR, and everyone at the organization for believing in me, and RSS Racing.”

CMR Construction & Roofing first sponsored Sieg at Texas Motor Speedway in March and is on his car tonight in Daytona.

“We are excited to sponsor Ryan Sieg for the 2020 NASCAR Xfinity Series season. I raced alongside Ryan in the past, and the Sieg family are great people, both on and off the track,” said Jason White, president of motorsports for the company. “CMR is looking forward to a great partnership and racing program.”

White made 51 starts in the Xfinity Series from 1999-2014.

Former Whelen Series Rookie of Year to split time between Trucks, ARCA

Leave a comment

After four seasons on the NASCAR Whelen All-American Series circuit, Shane Lee will split his time this season between the Camping World Truck Series and ARCA series.

Lee will compete on both series for Win-Tron Racing.

“Shane and (veteran chief Jamie Jones) will be able to work together throughout the season and having a veteran around him like Jason White and being able to lean on (teammate) Gray Gaulding will help Shane progress quickly,” Win-Tron owner Kevin Cywinski said in a media release.

Lee earned 18 Whelen Series wins while racing at Hickory Motor Speedway (including two limited Late Model championships), Myrtle Beach Speedway and Greenville Pickens Speedway. He also earned Rookie of the Year honors on the Whelen All-American Tour in 2013.

“This is the kind of opportunity I’ve been dreaming of,” Lee said. “I felt like we finished off the 2015 season on a high note and really looking forward to 2016. It’s exciting to know we’re headed to Daytona (International Speedway) this weekend for the first test session of the year.”

Lee will take part in the ARCA open test at Daytona Friday and Saturday in preparation for the season-opening Lucas Oil 200 there on Feb. 13.

His Truck Series debut will be April 2 at Martinsville Speedway.
