Entering Saturday’s United Rentals 176 at Watkins Glen International, Deegan sits 17th-place in NASCAR Camping World Truck Series points, after a season that has resulted in three top-15 and six top-20 finishes throughout the first 14 races, including a pair of 13th-place results at Kansas and Charlotte.
While the 20-year-old wasn’t specific on the organization(s) in which she’ll be piloting entries for in the NASCAR Xfinity Series and NASCAR Camping World Truck Series in 2022, Deegan does have a driver development contract with Ford Performance, which would lead many to believe that she’ll once again be part of the Ford camp in 2022.
