Well, it wasn’t over, but it’s probably going to be over now…
Ryan Sieg tried his hardest to get revenge for an early-race accident between himself and Ty Gibbs, one that caused significant damage to his No. 39 CMR Roofing Ford Mustang, sending him to pit road for repairs.
Sieg was reasonably upset at Gibbs for the early-race accident, which the Tucker, Georgia-native made sure to let him know of during the race’s rain/snow delay at Lap 19. A heated conversation between the two drivers ended in smiles, but those smiles weren’t genuine.
Both drivers would speak to FOX Sports 1 about the incident under the red flag, as well as the possibility of it continuing – which obviously, by the headline of this story, was a legitimate concern.
In his interview, Sieg would say: “He’s definitely probably going to learn his lesson if you know what I mean.”

After the event got back underway, NASCAR posted Ryan Sieg for failing to meet minimum speed. However, just as Adam Alexander, Ryan Blaney, and Joey Logano were able to articulate that to the viewers, the No. 39 entered frame, washing up the track to try and wreck Gibbs.
He was successful, kind of. Although he made contact with Gibbs, he did more damage to his own entry than he did the No. 54 Toyota Supra. He also did more damage to Sheldon Creed and Brett Moffitt’s entries, who made contact with the outside wall.

After the accident, Sieg would be forced to enter the garage, and would be called to the NASCAR hauler after the event, although according to the team’s radio communications, the team didn’t know why.
