Update (Oct. 7): DGR-Crosley announced Oct. 7 that Deegan will indeed make her Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut at Kansas Speedway on Oct. 16.


Hailie Deegan looks to be making her NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series debut at Kansas Speedway, according to NASCAR’s rosters page for the Oct. 16 event.

According to the roster, Deegan is slated to drive the No. 17 Ford F-150 for DGR-Crosley in her first start. Drew Blickensderfer will crew chief and Tim Fedewa will be the spotter.

Deegan has three career wins in the K&N Pro Series but has yet to visit victory lane this year in the ARCA Menards Series. She has, however, scored four top-five and 16 top-10 finishes.

An official announcement has not yet been made by the team.

Formerly a part-time truck, DGR’s No. 17 has shown up more often in recent weeks, coming into possession of the points accrued by All Out Motorsports’ No. 7 for Korbin Forrister earlier this year. David Ragan, Dylan Lupton and Forrister precede Deegan in the truck.

Lupton is scheduled to race the truck at Texas Motor Speedway as well, and no driver has been revealed for Martinsville Speedway or Phoenix Raceway just yet. Could Deegan show up later in the season as well? Stay tuned.

Earlier this year, Hailie’s father Brian mentioned on the family’s podcast that Kansas could be a possibility for his daughter’s Truck debut this year.

The Clean Harbors 200 at Kansas is set for 4 p.m. ET on Oct. 16.
