Hailie Deegan will move up to the NASCAR Xfinity Series and race full-time for AM Racing, beginning in 2024.
“AM Racing is proud to announce the addition of Hailie to the family. We are excited to provide her with a home where she can grow as a cornerstone of our young program. It is an exciting time as we continue to strengthen our relationships within the Ford camp, AIRBOX, Viva, and our other partners respectively,” said Wade Moore, the president of AM Racing.
Deegan will race the organization’s No. 15 Ford, beginning Feb. 17 at Daytona. She will move up after three years in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series.
“Through the support of Ford and the AM Racing team, I feel that we will achieve great things together in the NASCAR Xfinity Series, and I can’t wait to see what the next few years have in store for all of us,” Deegan said.
The two-time NCTS Most Popular driver finished 13th, on the lead lap, in her lone Xfinity Series start – a year ago at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“We are excited to see Hailie continuing to advance her career by running full-time with AM Racing in the NASCAR Xfinity Series in 2024,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director Ford Performance Motorsports.
Deegan has boasted a strong presence in the Superstar Racing Experience. The 22-year-old also has three ARCA West wins.
AM Racing will soon announce more details on Deegan’s NASCAR Xfinity Series program.
