Lawless Alan has had enough of Hailie Deegan, who he has had multiple run-ins with on track over the course of his NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series career. Following another run-in on Lap 5, and then an eventual exit from the race on Lap 7 in Friday’s Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville Superspeedway, the driver of the No. 45 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado did not hold back on Deegan.
After being evaluated and released from the infield care center, Alan spoke to Jared Haas of Frontstretch.com, and he was in absolute disbelief at the accident between himself and Deegan, which ruined what was a race with plenty of potential.
A seething Alan questioned Deegan’s driving abilities and claims that Deegan wrecks everyone.
“She does it to f***ing everybody.”

“I mean, I don’t think there’s much to say. She’s talentless, and just sailed it off in there and wrecked me,” Alan explained. “It’s lap, what, three? And she’s sailing it in there. I just don’t understand what the move was about. It’s not the first time she’s wrecked me. She does it to fucking everyone, so it is what it is.”
While Alan suffered massive damage in the crash with Deegan, his team did all they could to get his No. 45 truck repaired in time to clear the Damaged Vehicle Policy clock. When the race went back green, it was apparent that the No. 45 team rushed the repairs as Alan cut a tire, which ultimately ended his race on Lap 7.
“The rules are the same for everybody,” Alan said of the DVP. “We were rushing because we knew we had so much to do. And we ended up not being able to — not against the clock, but just when we were going back green, we were trying to get out there probably too soon. And then it just blew the right front as soon as it got landed. Nothing we can do about it now.”
If you missed the incident in Friday’s race, which angered Alan, Deegan got loose while battling with Alan in Turns 3 and 4. Deegan couldn’t wrangle her No. 13 truck, and slipped into Alan, which sent both drivers spinning. Alan would get tagged by Jack Wood, who had nowhere to go in the crash.
In that altercation, it seemed like Deegan was the one displeased with Alan. This time around, it was Alan that was left seething about Deegan’s on-track abilities.
