Ford Performance announced Saturday afternoon that Deegan will run full-time for DGR-Crosley in the NASCAR Truck Series for the 2021 season. This announcement came during Deegan’s first NASCAR Truck Series race at Kansas Speedway.

Deegan ran the full schedule for the ARCA Menards Series this season. During the season, Deegan posted four top-five finishes along with 17 top-10 finishes. She finished third in the standings, but the field was not as large as in previous years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

During the race it was announced that Deegan will run the full Truck schedule in 2021.

Hailie Deegan is in no rush when it comes to her fast-paced career. Turning 18 years old Thursday means Deegan will be able to compete on ovals longer than 1.25 miles and drive full time in any of NASCAR ’s three national series . But just because she can doesn’t mean she will.

Deegan was unable to win a race during the season. Taylor Gray, her 15-year-old teammate at DGR-Crosley, posted twice as many top-five finishes in eight fewer races. Many have been critical of Deegan and whether she is ready for such a massive jump. I think she should have waited another year and ran part-time trucks and ARCA, due to her lack of seat time.

However, Deegan will now run full-time next year in the NASCAR Truck Series. Whether this is the right move remains to be seen.

The first question many will wonder is whether Deegan can compete for wins in 2021. DGR-Crosley does not have a long history of winning in the NASCAR Truck Series, but on multiple occasions, they have consistently run top-five and top-10. They have one win, which came at Kentucky Speedway in 2019 when Tyler Ankrum took the No. 17 truck to victory lane.

  Paving the way: Award-winning women in NASCAR staking powerful claims From Hailie Deegan’s rise into the national series ranks to Richard Childress Racing’s focus on diversity, women are changing the game in NASCAR. While every day is a work in progress when it comes to diversity and inclusion, the sanctioning body has made great strides in ensuring this particular realm of motorsports provides a conducive […]A particular focus on the women who have served as driving forces in recent years reflects just how far the sport has come in creating a diverse space. The 2020 NASCAR Drive for Diversity Awards on Oct. 8 highlighted some of those women, receiving the much-deserved recognition for their work both on and off the race track.

Hailie Deegan : It’s definitely a work-in-progress, and their are pros and cons coming from a dirt background. Dirt has given me a really good car Deegan : Well, I didn’t have one driver that made me say ‘I wanna be like him’ but I think everyone in the Cup Series is so good, and the racing is so tight.

Hailie Deegan stopped by Studio 3 to chat with NASCAR .com's Jonathan Merryman about her first victory in the Truck Series Highlights. Up To Speed. Xfinity Fastest Recap. Chip Ganassi Racing has announced that Ross Chastain will drive the No. 42 full time in the NASCAR Cup Series in 2021 .

Deegan might not have a win in the ARCA Menards Series, but she has run near the front on multiple occasions. She runs near the top 10 on a good days, with consistent top-20 finishes. A top-five at some tracks wouldn’t be a surprise either.

The equipment itself is not up to par with the other organizations in the NASCAR Truck Series. However, letting Deegan run in the top 20 to learn more and gain experience is not a bad idea. However she runs, it should be well-known to not set very high expectations for her.

It might be a shocking move for Deegan to already compete full-time in the NASCAR Truck Series. She has not had much success in a watered-down ARCA field this year, while other drivers on the team had more success than her.

She could have a truck capable of making the playoffs, but expectations should not be too high for someone with limited experience in the series. Many drivers have been rushed series-to-series with high expectations. It almost always ends in disappointment, with very few outliers.

It could work out, with Deegan surpassing expectations. DGR-Crosley currently fields the No. 15 truck of Tanner Gray, who has run well and currently sits 13th in the standings. If Deegan can replicate Gray’s performance next season, it should be a success for her and the team.
