While Hailee Deegan fans were probably hoping for more during her rookie season in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, she is steadily improving race by race. After a 21st-place finish at Atlanta Motor Speedway, where she managed to stay out of trouble for the entire race, things are starting to look up for the young driver.

The next race on the schedule is the Bristol dirt event, which could act as an equalizer for Hailee Deegan. If Deegan can stay out of trouble next week at Bristol, she could come away with her best finish of the year. While her fans want her to win, a top-10 finish would feel like a victory for the young driver and her team.

Hailee Deegan moved up to the Camping World Truck Series in 2021, where she started things off with a 24th-place finish at Daytona. She followed that up with a 28th-place finish at the Daytona Road Course, which moved her from 25th to 23rd in points. Unfortunatley, that wouldn't last as she would drop to 29th in the standings after a 28th-place finish at Las Vegas.
