Deegan Looking to Build on Career-Best Finish at Gateway

Deegan Looking to Build on Career-Best Finish at Gateway


Hailie Deegan started racing at the age of eight and has been the only female driver in the Lucas Oil Off Road Pro series, as well as regional series to win championships in 2013, 2015 and 2016, along with being the only youth to ever win the Lucas Oil Off Road Pro series Driver of the Year award (2016).


In Hailie’s first season driving in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West (now known as the ARCA West) in 2018, she scored her first win at Meridian Speedway in Idaho, and went on to capture two more checkered flags in the 2019 season making her the only female to have won races in the K&N Pro Series to date.


Deegan, who races for David Gilliland Racing, returns to World Wide Technology Raceway, the track where she posted her career-best NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finish (seventh-place) last season. It was the best finish by a female competitor in the series not on a superspeedway. Now, the California native returns to the 1.25-mile track looking to get her 2022 season heading in the right direction. 


This year, Deegan has made 10 starts this season posting five top-20 finishes and an average finish of 24.6.


Last year at World Wide Technology Raceway, Deegan started 19th and raced her way up to a seventh-place finish; becoming just the fourth female in series history to post a top-10 finish joining Jennifer Jo Cobb, Natalie Decker and Angela Ruch.
