AM Racing and Hailie Deegan part ways

AM Racing placed Joey Logano in their entry for the Xfinity Series race at the Chicago Street Course removing Hailie Deegan.

Deegan, 22, had been the driver of the No. 15 Ford for the first 17 events of the season but managed just a 26.8 place finish. Now that the Chicago race weekend has passed AM Racing has announced that Deegan will not be returning to the car.

In his lone start in the car, Logano finished eighth in Chicago.

“AM Racing and Hailie Deegan have decided to part ways, effective immediately. We are greatful for Hailie’s contributions and dedication as the driver of the No. 15 Ford Mustang during her time with the race team,” read a social media post from the team.

“We wish Hailie the best in her future endeavors and look forward to her continued success on and off the track.?

Deegan posted the following message on X about the parting of ways.

“Beginning this season, I had a lot of excitement and hope in taking my next step in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. It’s something I’ve been working towards for years and always dreamt about. I worked hard to prepare for this season after the team pursued me to drive their car. Unfortunately, it has not turned out the way that I expected. There are always several reasons within a race team as to why things do or do not work, but sadly our goals no longer align. With that being said, myself and AM Racing will be parting ways.

“The only thing I am focused on is getting back to being competitive. That is ALL that matters to me. I’m working as quick as possible to find the best opportunities to get back to the track. I’m thankful for the following that I have and everyone who supports me. It’s truly only me that knows the whole story and what I need to succeed. See you at the track, soon.”
