Hailie Deegan Makes History With K&N Pro Series #Win At Meridian

Deegan Makes History With K&N Pro Series Win At Meridian

First Female Driver To Score Series Victory

Hailie Deegan - First Female Driver To Score Series VictoryHailie Deegan made history on Saturday night by winning the NAPA AUTO PARTS Idaho 208 at Idaho’s Meridian Speedway and becoming the first female driver to win in the history of the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.

The 17-year-old NASCAR Next driver from Temecula, California was making just her 12th start in the West’s oldest stock car series – driving Bill McAnally Racing’s No. 19 Mobil 1 / NAPA Power Premium Plus Toyota Camry.

“I was in bed last night thinking, ‘If it comes down, last lap, I’m in second, I’m a car length off of him, what am I going to do?'”, Deegan said. “And I found that Turn 1 spot. I knew what exactly I had to do there. I was doing it to some other people just getting right under them to get them a little light to get them, not wrecking loose, nothing crazy, but enough to just get a little under them and make the pass happen. We did that. I knew exactly what I had to do the last lap. I did it, we executed, and we made it happen.” Deegan edged out BMR teammate Cole Rouse with a last-lap pass to win by .329 seconds and lead a 1-2-3 finish for BMR. Derek Kraus, who led 190 laps in dominating the event ended up third.

“I was behind Cole and I knew we were faster,” Deegan said of the closing laps. “Cole was over driving a little bit and I knew I was faster if I hit my marks. The last few laps I hit my marks. I knew I had to give Cole a little push up in (Turn) 1 to get past him. I gave him a little nudge and got him a little loose and I got under him and we won.”

Hailie Deegan's Winning Team


Deegan talked about being the first female driver to win in the series.

“It hasn’t even sunk in yet,” she said. “It’s going to be a crazy next couple of days.

“I’m so happy that Toyota and Bill took a chance on me this year,” she said. “They took a chance on me – Jack Irving and Toyota, NAPA, and Bill. They’re the ones who took the chance on me and it paid off.”



Deegan had become the first female to win a pole in the series, setting the fast mark in qualifying at the most recent event on the circuit – at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track earlier this month. Her previous best career finish was second, which she registered on two occasions this year – at Las Vegas (two weeks ago) and at Douglas County Speedway in Roseburg, Oregon in June. That tied the series’ record for highest finish by a woman in either the K&N Pro Series East or West.

With her win, Deegan regained the lead in rookie points for the series and moved to fifth in the overall championship standings. In 12 starts, she has one win, five top-five, and 10 top-10 series finishes.

Briscoe’s victory in the Drive for the Cure 200 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina also marked the 55th overall win for SHR.

Briscoe also won the July 18, 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Eldora Speedway in Rossburg, Ohio.


“I need to thank Ford Performance, Tony Stewart, Gene Haas, Fred Biagi, Bill DenBeste and everyone on the No. 98 and at SHR for the opportunity they gave me this year and this car today.“I need to thank Ford Performance, Tony Stewart, Gene Haas, Fred Biagi, Bill DenBeste and everyone on the No. 98 and at SHR for the opportunity they gave me this year and this car today.

I was holding back tears the last couple of laps. This year has not been by my standards anywhere near where it needs to be. We’ve wrecked a lot of race cars and I think my best finish was ninth, so I was really down on myself personally.

I was just waiting for the caution to come out. I knew it was gonna come at some point and the restarts were crazy getting down into one. Luckily, the good Lord upstairs didn’t bring a caution and we were able to hold on.” Chase Briscoe, driver of the No. 98 Ford Mustang for Stewart-Haas Racing with Biagi-DenBeste

Its apparent heading into this weekend the drivers will be facing several unknowns at the newly minted Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course. But that won’t slow down the intense action that has been bubbling up in this season’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoffs as the series readies for the wild card that is the Drive for the Cure 200 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, this Saturday, Sept. 29 at 3 p.m. ET on NBCSN, PRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio the second race of the Round of 12 in the 2018 Playoffs.

In stylish fashion last weekend, Christopher Bell nabbed the first win of the Xfinity Playoffs at Richmond Raceway, and in doing so locked himself into the Round of 8, leaving 11 other drivers vying for the remaining seven spots.

This weekend, the 12-driver Playoff field will compete on the Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course for the first time in series history. The Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course is a 2.28-mile, multi-elevational track that has 17 turns. This weekend’s race will consist of 55 laps for 200 kilometers, or 125.4 miles, and is broken up into three stages. The first two stages will be 15 laps each and the final stage will be 25 laps.


The Charlotte Motor Speedway Road Course will be the fourth different road course the NASCAR Xfinity Series drivers have competed on in 2018; joining Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Road America and Watkins Glen International.

The 2018 season is the first time Charlotte has hosted the second race of the Xfinity Series Playoffs. Prior to Charlotte being named the host of race No. 2 in the Playoffs, it was held at Dover International Speedway in 2016 and 2017. NASCAR Xfinity Series Playoff contender Daniel Suarez took home the win of the second race in the 2016 Playoffs at Dover, and later went on to win the title that season. In the 2017 Playoffs, non-Playoff contender Ryan Blaney won the event.

Road courses have been known to provide some great unpredictable action and even first-time winners. Over the last decade road courses have produced nine Xfinity Series first-time winners. This season, Playoff contender Justin Allgaier has dominated the road courses winning two of the previous three (Mid-Ohio and Road America); Joey Logano won the third at Watkins Glen International.

Monster Energy #NASCAR Cup Series Road Course Aces

Monster Energy #NASCAR Cup Series Road Course Aces

As strong as the 2018 Playoff drivers are, the strength and versatility of that field narrows a bit when it comes to road course racing. 

Monster Energy #NASCAR Cup Series Road Course Aces


Among the current Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series drivers, only three have won at both the series’ regular road course stops at Sonoma, Calif. and Watkins Glen, N.Y. And, interestingly enough, those three have led the 2018 championship all season.

The "Big 3" Kyle Busch, Martin Truex Jr. and Kevin Harvick are the only drivers in this weekend’s field to have won at both longtime Cup road course tracks. And in Busch’s case, he’s won twice at each.


Busch won at Sonoma in 2015 and at Watkins Glen in 2013 and earned a rare season sweep of the two road courses in 2008. 

Truex has a pair of wins at Sonoma (2018 and 2013) and won at The Glen in 2017.

Harvick won at Sonoma in 2017 and at The Glen in 2006.

Rivera, a two-time NFL Coach of the Year, has the highest win percentage of any head coach in Carolina Panthers history. On Sunday, the eighth-year Carolina coach will wear a special #CAREolinas shirt to support Hurricane Florence relief efforts in the Carolinas. Visit North Carolina, in partnership with Discover South Carolina, created #CAREolinas as an information hub for hurricane recovery, bringing neighbors together across — and beyond — state lines to share, connect and support relief efforts.

"It's an honor to be named the Grand Marshal for the inaugural Bank of America ROVAL 400, and I'm grateful that Bank of America and Charlotte Motor Speedway are willing to use this opportunity to support victims of Hurricane Florence. I'll be wearing a special #CAREolinas t-shirt that fans can buy with proceeds going to support relief efforts," Rivera said.

"Like the Panthers, the speedway and NASCAR receive so much support from fans throughout the Carolinas. No doubt this unique, new playoff race will be a great diversion for a few hours to take their minds off the effects of the storm. I'm looking forward to being part of a historic day for NASCAR, Bank of America and Charlotte Motor Speedway."


Additionally, the speedway will display a 225-foot-long #CAREolinas banner on the backstretch chicane.


Additionally, the speedway will display a 225-foot-long #CAREolinas banner on the backstretch chicane. Each Monster Energy Cup Series and NASCAR Xfinity Series team will also receive #CAREolinas decals to go on their race cars for ROVAL™ week, further raising awareness for the #CAREolinas Hurricane Florence relief efforts.
