ailie Deegan appeared on the May 8 episode of “NASCAR Race Hub” to promote her upcoming throwback scheme at Darlington, which is honoring Dale Earnhardt and his No. 15 Wrangler Ford.

During the appearance, the Xfinity Series rookie examined the first 10 races of the season, including her career-best finish of 12th in the April 20 Talladega race. 

Despite that result, the 22-year-old driver was not pleased moments after taking the checkered flag because she and her team believed she could have done better but didn’t receive the necessary help from fellow Ford driver Riley Herbst on the final lap in double overtime. 

“There was a caution with two laps to go,” Deegan said on the show. “And then with everyone running out of fuel, we were to the good on fuel and so we ended up staying out. And it just was all working out as planned, was right there. 

“And I just kind of got left out a little bit. Didn’t get much help, which is understandable when it’s the last two laps at Talladega. So, it was definitely a hurtful one just cause you know, like, yeah, it’s my best finish is 12th this year. We’ve had some rough points in the season, but I think that was the most mad I’ve ever been after a race.”

Hailie Deegan Was Cursing Mad at Talladega

Hailie Deegan admitting on “Race Hub” that she was mad doesn’t come as a surprise to her fans that were listening to the No. 15 team radio at Talladega. The driver made it perfectly clear what she thought about the result and what had happened in those final laps.
