Hailie Deegan is a professional stock car racing driver for David Gilliland Racing in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series. She was born in Temecula, California. She is a former Toyota Racing Development driver and presently drives the No. 1 Ford F-150 for Ford Racing Development.
After converting from off-road and on-dirt to asphalt, she began her stock car racing career in 2016. After that, she began her NASCAR career in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West in 2018.
Hailie, who is 20 years old, is also the first female driver to win races in the West Series, which she did in both the 2018 and 2019 seasons.
She is the eldest daughter of Brian Deegan and his wife, Marissa Deegan, a well-known professional freestyle motocross rider and racing driver. And, if you’re wondering where she learned her skills, that’s the place to look.
Hailie Deegan’s father encouraged her to pursue her dreams.
Hailie was reared by her parents with her two younger siblings, Haiden and Hudson Deegan, who are both motocross racers.
In a May 2020 interview with NBC’s Rebecca Lowe, she discussed her career and how her parents’ support helped her achieve her goals.
Hailie said, “I grew up in a terrible world.” “My father did an excellent job of not being harsh with me, but he always set a high bar for me. As a result, I’ve always felt like I meet that criteria.”
She went on to say that it was due of these factors that she was able to develop the work ethic she does now and that she always sought to push herself a little more each day.
The pro racer, who presently shares her time between California and Mooresville, North Carolina, also indicated that she does not train hard only to beat her father’s records or to be compared to others. But she does it in order to achieve the new objectives she has set for herself.
The Father of Hailie Deegan Survived a Near-Death Experience
Brian, Hailie’s father, is known as a freestyle motocross racing superstar. In 2005, while filming for a television show, he had a near-fatal crash while attempting a backflip. He lost a kidney and four pints of blood in the accident, and doctors predicted he wouldn’t live.
But he survived the accident, which he attributes to the fact that he found Christianity afterward. He began following Christianity while still struggling for his life, and after his recovery, he dedicated his life to religion.
Chase Cabre, Hailie Deegan’s boyfriend
Not only does her family have a history in motorsports, but her boyfriend, Chase Cabre, is also a member of the same fraternity. After meeting in motorsport circles, the two allegedly began dating in July 2017.
Cabre is a Rev Racing development driver who debuted in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East in 2017.
He’s also a talented filmmaker and editor, and a short look at his Instagram account reveals that he films races and events associated with them.
His profile also demonstrates his love and support for his girlfriend, Hailie, since he frequently attends her races and commends her efforts. He also assists her in the production of her vlogs, which she publishes on her YouTube page.
Hailie is undoubtedly fortunate to have a loving family and a partner who is constantly there to encourage and admire her.
