“It’s kind of bittersweet,” Smith said. “I’m disappointed for the team, I’m disappointed for my guys, and selfishly I’m disappointed. But, for JR Motorsports, I’m happy. A 1-2 finish is great. It’s kind of a weird mix of emotions right now.
“I’m happy for the company and frustrated for the 7 team.”
Earnhardt was thrilled with the 1-2 finish and the sixth win for his company.
“I’m proud of the company and what they’ve been able to accomplish this year.
Sieg was a career-best third.
“It was a win for us,” Sieg said. “Hopefully it will bring some more sponsors. It would be nice to have a full-time sponsor, hopefully we turned some eyes.”
The performance earned huge praise from Earnhardt, who said he spent time watching Sieg race during last month’s race at Dover.
“He impressed the hell out of me. I had not really paid a ton of attention to him prior to that, and I know those guys run on a shoestring (budget), but he had a couple of runs during the race at Dover that were better than anyone outside the top-five,” Earnhardt said. “It’s great to see him run well because I think he does a lot with very little.”
Ryan Reed finished a career-best fourth and was followed by Larson, Joey Logano and Darrell Wallace Jr. The top 10 was rounded out by Jeremy Clements, Trevor Bayne and Mike Wallace.
