Hailie Deegan, No. 4 CRAFTSMAN Ford Fusion
Hailie Deegan kept her top-10 streak alive last weekend at Pocono Raceway with another seventh-place finish. She has not finished outside of the top 10 in her four starts in the ARCA Menards Series this season and hopes to improve on that this Friday at Lucas Oil Raceway (LOR) in Brownsburg, Ind.
Deegan has one prior start at LOR. Last year she started seventh and finished fifth at the short track. This race will be the first short-track race of the ARCA season. To date, the smallest track they have competed on is the one-mile oval of Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway.
Deegan will be racing a rebuilt Ford Fusion from last season, which she has not raced yet this year. CRAFTSMAN will sponsor Deegan’ s No. 4 Ford Fusion at LOR.

Deegan on LOR: “Lucas Oil Raceway is fun. I feel like we haven’t raced at a short track in a really long time. It will be nice to mix it up from holding it wide open a lot, having these long straightaways at Pocono, Talladega and even Daytona at the first race. I think this will get everybody back into the groove for short-track racing. That’s what I’ve been used to coming up through stock car racing, so I think we’ll have a good run there.”
TIL NEXT TIME, I AM STILL WORKING ON MY REDNECK!
