Notes of Interest:

Sophomore Journey: After a successful rookie campaign in the NASCAR Xfinity Series last season with driver Brett Moffitt, AM Racing will embark on its sophomore journey in 2024 with driver Hailie Deegan for the entire 33-race tour, continuing with Saturday night’s DUDE Wipes 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

The Statesville, N.C.-based team plans to expand its footprint in the NASCAR Xfinity Series to also run two cars throughout the season with its No. 25 AM Racing entry.

Future Focused: Last October, AM Racing announced that Hailie Deegan joined the family-owned operation to pilot the team’s No. 15 Ford Mustang in a multiyear agreement.

Deegan, a native of Temecula, Calif. has been a staple in the NASCAR CRAFTSMAN Truck Series for the past three seasons but will embrace her rookie season in the NASCAR Xfinity Series as part of the Ford Performance program.

Deegan grew up racing off-road and on dirt but transitioned to competing on asphalt in 2016 to pursue a career in stock car racing. She began that transition in 2018 in the ARCA Menards Series West (previously NASCAR K&N Pro Series West), She became the first female driver to have won races in the West Series, doing so in the 2018 and 2019 seasons, respectively.

Deegan, 21, arrives at AM Racing after a stint driving for ThorSport Racing in 2023.

Giving You Piece of Air: For the fifth time in 2024, AirBox will serve as the primary marketing partner of Deegan’s No. 15 Ford Mustang in Saturday night’s DUDE Wipes 250 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway.

Her track-best result occurred during the 2021 United Rentals 200 and the 2022 Blue Emu Maximum Pain Relief 200 when she steered to a 19th-place finish twice after starting 23rd and 31st, respectively, for David Gilliland Racing (now TRICON Garage).

AM Minute: It was a quiet Easter weekend for the Statesville, N.C.-based team.

Both the AM Racing Dirt and ARCA Menards Series divisions were off this past weekend and both will continue to sit idle this weekend before the dirt division returns to action at Farmer City Raceway next weekend.

The ARCA Menards Series is enjoying a short sabbatical before their season resumes action at Talladega (Ala.) Superspeedway on April 20.

Richmond (Va.) Raceway | ToyotaCare 250 Race Recap: The sixth race of the 2024 NASCAR Xfinity Series season kicked off in Richmond, Virginia on Saturday, March 30.

Back in AirBox colors, Deegan found speed from practice to qualifying to land her 24th on the starting grid. Throughout the 250-lap race, Deegan hovered inside the top 25, but during Stage 3, the handling of her No. 15 AM Racing Ford Mustang improved, allowing the former ARCA Menards Series winner to contend for a top-20 finish.

However, in the closing laps of the race, Deegan’s car abruptly shut off and coasted to pit road. The mechanical gremlin left the rookie driver and team with a frustrating 31st-place finish.

From the Pit Box: Industry veteran Joe Williams Jr. is Hailie Deegan’s crew chief.

He will be crew chief for his 138th NASCAR Xfinity Series race on Saturday night and his eighth in the Old Dominion.

In his previous 137 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts, he has collected one win (Auto Club Speedway | February 2022), eight top-five and 30 top-10 finishes.
