Hailie Deegan who competes full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series driving the No.1 Ford F-150 for David Gilliland Racing and is also a Ford Performance driver appears to be dissatisfied with the new NASCAR All-Star format and calls out NASCAR for its decision making.
She is a very young racer and has not had luck at the track as her season-best finish was 17th thrice this season at Daytona International Speedway during the NextEra Energy 250 and then at Kansas Speedway last week during the Heart of America 200 and this week’s SpeedyCash.com 220 at Texas Motor Speedway.
She joined the Hendrick Motorsports Star Duo Chase Elliott who drives the No.9 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and Kyle Larson who drives the No.5 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 in calling out NASCAR for its new updated All-Star format which takes place this week.
“Who’s making these decisions?” asks Hailie Deegan infuriated with the latest All-Star Race format
Hailie Deegan was seemingly upset with the revamped NASCAR All-Star format and all she said was that she genuinely questions the thought process during the decision-making of situations like these.
“I wanna know, at NASCAR, because there’s a lot of situations like this that come up, who’s making these decisions?” asked Hailie Deegan.
She concluded by demanding to know the person behind this whole process and also raised concern from the fans as to how well they understand such a complicated format.
“I feel like they need to put a name on the spot of it, like who is the face of these decisions? How are you gonna get the fans to understand it?” questioned Hailie Deegan.
What are the thoughts of the famous HMS Power Duo regarding this fact?
The two Star drivers of Hendrick Motorsports, Kyle Larson and Chase Elliott also seemed to be on the same grounds as Hailie Deegan as Larson went on to say that he’s aware of the time and other factors affecting these decisions and he would appreciate if the Cup Series and All-Star Race formats stay indigenous to some tracks.
“I know there’s a lot of logistics and a lot of stuff that goes into it, but I feel like the championship race and the All-Star race would be fun to see move around,” said Kyle Larson.
The table-topper of this season Chase Elliott thinks similar to his fellow teammate and agrees that the formats should move around, especially that of the All-Star Race, and also added that he would be delighted to emerge victorious at the Texas All-Star Race this week.
To get away from Texas would be a major win for me,” said Chase Elliott.
With three of NASCAR’s top racers disagreeing with the All-Star Race format, will the organization take into account their driver’s concerns and work on solving them?
