Hailie Deegan
David Gilliland Racing
2021 Fantasy Outlook
One of the most anticipated debuts in the Camping World Truck Series this season is prospect Deegan. She dipped her toes into the truck series pool last year with just one start, but Deegan will get a full schedule of action in 2021 and race for Rookie of the Year. Deegan has been tearing up the ARCA Menards Series and K&N Pro Series West for the past three seasons. Now 19-years-old, she's ready to take the next steps in her NASCAR racing development. Deegan is tabbed to drive the No. 1 Ford for DGR this season. She will partner with crew chief Mike Hillman Jr. and his 300+ starts and 23-career truck series victories of experience. Deegan has obvious talent, gives great feedback on the car and is a quick study behind the wheel. We're being somewhat reserved with a ranking of 17th-place in the pre-season, but the sky truly is the limit for this driver and team. Read Past Outlooks
