“When it comes to the NASCAR world, when things are about to go down, there’s usually a lot of rumors about it. It usually gets told before it’s actually announced. But, this is something we’ve kept a secret, pretty well,” Deegan opened in her Vlog.
“I really just wanted to make my debut, for sure, on a mile-and-a-half because that’s where I feel most comfortable,” Deegan said. “I wanted to get my feet wet in the Xfinity Series.”
She’ll drive the number No. 07 Ford. SS GreenLight Racing will field the car.
“I don’t know yet what I’m going to be doing next year. I wish I knew and had it figured out already.
“At least for the time being, we’re going for our first Xfinity race at Las Vegas and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m so happy the day’s finally here.”
Deegan already has a line of merch at the ready. Vegas themed shirts have already landed in her online store.
Pristine Auction will serve as the primary sponsor on the Xfinity machine.
Deegan is currently in her second year of full-time NASCAR Truck Series racing. She’s claimed three top-10s along the way with two of them coming this season.
