MOORESVILLE, N.C. (July 8, 2021) – Hailie Deegan will compete in the Rackley Roofing Presents Camping World SRX Series season finale July

“SRX has been a blast and I’m super pumped to run the finale at Nashville,” Deegan said. “Knoxville was a great
experience and finishing second to Tony Stewart was a huge accomplishment. That was on dirt, so I’m definitely
interested to see what these SRX cars feel like on pavement this Saturday night at Slinger, and one of the best things about
racing Nashville is that I can take what I learn at Slinger and apply it there.”
Deegan is a fulltime driver in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. The 19-year-old racer from Temecula,
California, is a three-time winner in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West and was the first female to win a race in that
“We all saw at Knoxville how quickly Hailie adapted to these SRX cars and it was pretty obvious that she has no
reservations about mixing it up with these guys,” Evernham said. “She gained positions in each heat and in the feature and
then finished second to one of the best racecar drivers in the world. Hailie has definitely earned her spot in the Camping
World SRX Series.”
Saturday’s race from Slinger and next Saturday’s race at Nashville will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET on the CBS
Television Network with streaming live on Paramount+ Premium.
The Camping World SRX Series features world-class drivers from an array of motorsports backgrounds competing in

Castroneves, Bobby Labonte, Marco Andretti, Michael Waltrip, Paul Tracy, Bill Elliott and Willy T. Ribbs are the 10
regular Camping World SRX Series drivers. At Nashville, they’ll be joined by Deegan and reigning NASCAR Cup Series
champion Chase Elliott, who will race against his father, Bill, the 1988 NASCAR Cup Series champion.
The Camping World SRX Series’ inaugural season kicked off June 12 at Stafford (Conn.) Motor Speedway where local
