Hailie Deegan Competing in SRX

In addition to reigning ARCA Menards Series Rookie of the Year and current NASCAR Camping World Truck Series rookie, Hailie Deegan will add Superstar Racing Experience driver to her racing resume.

Deegan will compete in the new series, she announced on Instagram April 22.

Ray Evernham, co-owner of the series, confirmed Deegan will indeed compete in the series, though it is unknown which event she will compete. It’s expected she will be one of the part-time ringer drivers the series plans to field once a race alongside the 10-driver main field.

UPDATE: Knoxville Raceway shared to its Instagram story that she would race there on June 19.

SRX will kick off its inaugural season on June 12 at Stafford Motor Speedway. The series, co-owned by NASCAR Hall of Famer Tony Stewart, will feature six races this year; Deegan has experience at Lucas Oil Raceway, one of the schedule’s tracks.

They’ve managed to shoot this series to hell in a hand basket. I have nothing against this gal but is she a true superstar? Ribs, Waltrio and Andretti don’t belong either. Why not add Bozo and Ronald McDonald.Al Torney
