Shane Sieg Tests Successful at Daytona; Signs on with SS-Green Light Racing
Mooresville, NC Thursday January 17, 2008 - SS-Green Light Racing Announced it has signed Shane Sieg to drive 9-races in the no.07 Chevy Silverado NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series for the 2008 season. Sieg tested with the team recently at the Truck Series Pre-Season Thunder test sessions at Daytona International Speedway. In Daytona he posted a 9th place time at a speed of 183.053mph. Sieg debuted in the truck series in 2003 with 4-races that were all in the top-20. In 2004 he had 12-series starts with several finishes inside the top-15 including a top-10. He won 4 ("picking up the most places") awards in the Truck Series along with a Rookie of the Race Award.
Prior to the Truck Series Sieg was proving his skill in various late model series. He's won races in the NASCAR Elite Division including a win at Lanier Speedway in Late Models, where he started from the pole. Sieg is a World Karting Champion in multiple divisions with many wins on both dirt and pavement. He began his path towards a racing career at just 8-years old in his hometown of Tucker, Georgia. Still young at age 25 he'll continue his career at NASCAR's 3rd highest level.
"We're very pleased to have Shane on our team," said Butch Miller, the 3 time ASA Series Champion and winning Craftsman Truck Driver, who will be working with the teams competition and coaching. "We want to work with young drivers, develop them and help them move on to the next level. Shane has proven he will have what it takes to move up the ranks and we look forward to developing him further."
Sieg will be testing again with the team next week at Atlanta Motor Speedway. For more on Shane Sieg visit www.SSRacingOnline or www.shanesieg.com
