Sieg ended the year 11th in points and the highest-ranked driver who did not have any kind of affiliation with a Cup operation. The team he raced for was his own. The family owned and operated race team did a lot with a little and Sieg impressed on a weekly basis. He consistently ran inside the top 15 and top 20 and finished as high as eighth in a race at Kansas. The numbers may not be stunning, but the results that he was able to consistently attain with the equipment he had is what earned him a place on this list.
