There's a lot of that going around.
here are some facts and knowledge. Get used to seeing Natalie Decker in a truck this year, upped her seat time to 17 races
I wish her the best, but she has to do better in a top 10 truck like the 54. Decker's career might be on the line with this.
rather see her in Trucks than KyBu
she's looking to prove herself and move up -- that's what Trucks should be about
it will be something that draws eyes to he sport if she does decent, she needs to up her game, and get a top 5
I think that Hailie Deegan will be better in the long run but we'll see. I hope that she advances slow enough to develop her skills and be competitive.
I don't have a lot of hope for Decker, but after 17 races in trucks that should tell the tale. She is in top 5 equipment. I don't think something like the boost Danica had that propelled her into a cup ride will happen anytime soon for any of them unless they hover around the top five or ten a lot. Deegan has had a couple of back to back lower finishes, but her style of driving and car control is faster and better than Decker's. Decker needs to get a whole lot faster.
Top 5? Has she run a Truck race without an incident yet? I'm not cracking on her, I'm forgetful.
You can find out this info yourself, it's easy peasy. Type in your search engine Natalie Decker stats, click on the racing reference https://www.racing-reference.info/driver/Natalie_Decker
link and it is full of information.
A "respectable" 13th at Vegas in a top 10 worthy truck. Hopefully gets better with more experience. Kyle Benjamin damn near won a couple in that 54 last year so it is capable.
She's better than Bo Lemastus at least. I don't think Benjamin has funding.
