The Down and Dirty Show

Ep. 73: Erik Jones (RWP)

Erik Jones welcomes us to his "toy shop" where he has some cool things to talk about, including his very first race car and the story behind its paint scheme. Jones also talks about the race cars he has hung onto from his career, including the famous Snowball Derby car and his first Cup Series win car from Daytona that is still covered in confetti. All of this leads to some great stories of Jones climbing the racing ranks. Jones also discusses what he's learned as he has moved through the NASCAR national series ladder and how he has grown professionally and personally. Also in the space are some Craftsman tools he has that were once his dad's and Jones admits whether he considers himself a handy man; the story of Jones being able to reclaim one of his father's cars and how it is tied to his racing career; the love Jones has for classic cars; digging into his active lifestyle away from the racetrack and explaining ice fishing; if he's getting more comfortable sharing on social media; an update on how Oscar is doing; what Jones would love to put in his storage space one day.

Ryan Sieg and his RSS Racing team are having a fantastic run in the Xfinity Series and Sieg is here to talk about how it's happened. Sieg begins by admitting whether he expected the type of performances he's had or if it's been surprising; the benefit of buying old RCR cars and having veteran Shane Wilson as his crew chief; if Sieg's attitude has changed any with the uptick in performance; if finishing in the top 10 is now the weekly goal; reflecting on his top five run at Richmond and what that meant to everyone on the team; how it feels to challenge cars from big teams like Joe Gibbs and Team Penske; Sieg explains how much older his equipment was to the competition before buying the RCR cars; how many employees there are at RSS and working on his car at the track; how much Sieg feels he's grown in his six years in the series and if he's content there; how gratifying it feels to perform well on all kinds of tracks; whether Sieg has his eyes on a realistic shot at making the playoffs.
