Lawless Alan Not Happy With Hailie Deegan Following Contact in NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series Race in Nashville

What’s Happening?

In the opening laps of Friday night’s NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series race at Nashville Superspeedway, Hailie Deegan performed a move, diving low on Lawless Allan. In doing so, she clipped the apron which sent her already loose truck up into Allan’s No. 45. Unable to save it, Allan would run up into Jack Wood’s No. 51 which was already tagged by the rear end of Deegan’s No. 13.

You Need To Know:

  • Lawless Allan was very upset with Deegan after the wreck. In a post-race interview, Allan stated that Deegan “Does it to f***ing everybody.” Whether or not that statement is true, there is no love lost between Allan and Deegan, and it will be interesting to see how the two race each other going forward.
  • While it may be a stretch to say that Deegan is making these moves intentionally, she does have a pattern in crashing her race trucks. As recently as Gateway, she got lightly tagged by Nick Sanchez’s No. 2 and backed it into the wall. At Charlotte, she was involved in an incident with Zane Smith’s No. 38. While that particular incident doesn’t appear to be her fault, it does to beg the question as to why she’s always put in those circumstances. If it’s because she’s in a rats nest battling in the low top-20-25, then she needs to find a way to get out of those situations. Whatever the case, the does have a habit of wrecking trucks, leading to Lawless Allan to say in a separate interview that she is “talentless.”
  • Many fans draw comparisons between her and former Cup Series driver, Danica Patrick. Right or wrong, these comparisons tend to split fans into two camps: those who think she’s better than Patrick and just hasn’t gotten the right opportunity; and those who say they’re the same and, to borrow from Allan, “talentless.” Who’s right and who’s wrong? Who knows? But NASCAR fans certainly won’t be sheepish with which side of that line they fall on.

The Main Characters

Frontstretch reporter, Jared Haas caught up with Lawless Allan after being released from the infield care center. This is where the soundbite: “She does it to f***ing everybody” comes from. Check it out.

Frontstretch media also caught up with Allan after the incident. This is when he calls Deegan “talentless.”

Hailie Deegan is also a big part of this picture. She hasn’t posted anything as of yet on the incident but when she does, we at the Daily Downforce will be sure to let you know.

Around The Garage

Below is her incident at Gateway where she crashes after light contact with Nick Sanchez’s No. 2 Chevy.

And again, she was involved in another racing accident as Zane Smith spun at Charlotte a couple of weeks ago. This one was not her fault, clearly, but it does draw into question why she constantly in these types of situations.

In The Stands

Grady1957 proposes that ThorSport (or Ford) go the Ricky Stenhouse route, where they sit her out a few races for crashing equipment. Maybe that is what she needs to get her head right so she’ll stop crashing trucks…?

Tea_Cup_7 comes to her defense. Yes, she did hit the apron…but she also didn’t have to drive it all the way down there. But I get the point. It was, somewhat, of a chain reaction.

ZIGAG says that once the truck hit the apron, there was no saving it.

FoeGun pokes fun, stating that she’ll be getting more content for her YouTube channel…

Michael Palladorous compares her to Danica Patrick but in an unfavorable way, saying that she’s actually worse.

Brian Curry points out that a lot of the criticism is coming from people who have never driven a truck in their lives. This brings back the age old argument of: “do you have to actually do something in order to be a critic of it?” Hmm…

Rich Mahoney states that she is exactly what Tony Stewart was talking about earlier in the week. Hmm…wouldn’t it be a hoot if she was tapped to drive one of his Xfinity cars…?

What do you think, Daily Downforce readers? Is Deegan to blame? Is she starting to run out of excuses in your eyes? Is she just going through a tough learning curve? Let us know what you think and keep it right here for all your latest breaking NASCAR news and stories!
