    IMO she should be running a full ARCA 20 race & 7-8 races West slate if possible. Maybe make her debut at Eldora and 1-2 other Truck starts. She doesn't need to be catapulted into Trucks much yet.

    AGREED AG. so much agree.
    TBH, I think she and her dad and likely harvick (he has said he likes deegan in the past) have talked about things and the lessons of others in NASCAR. I hope she chooses wisely.

    I'd like to see Brian run and/or get approval to run an Eldora race.

    Toyota must have passed on her.

    They passed on DGR Crosley too. There is a big hole that is open with Roush shrinking. Good opportunity for DGR Crosley and Deegan

    Dont think so.

    Ford just outbid for her prob. Toyota has always been high on her.

    If they were high on her she'd still be there.

    They are throwing her into the deep end..so ya want to road race? Good opportunities for DGR and Deegan though.

    Deegan, 18, will be competing in multiple series during the 2020 season as part of the DGR-Crosley race team, which announced it was moving to Ford Performance last week. She will run all 20 races in the ARCA Menards Series with that organization and also select events in the Mustang GT4 with Multimatic Motorsports in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge.

    Not sure having deegan and decker on same team is a good idea. Deegan will wreck decker if its for a win
    The decker fans will lose their ever loving mind.

    does this mean when she races her stadium truck it will need to be a ford too?

    I doubt she's (Decker) is back next year with DGR.

    Deegan has a lot to prove and I hope she does well for herself. She has potential to grow into a pretty good driver, this is only the beginning for her and I'm hoping she's not rushed through the ranks.

    A bit concerned she is biting off too much. We will have to see.

    Eh, I'm not sure.

    More seat time is always good. See can has been racing a stock car for only two or three years? She has a lot to learn and Ford is willing to front the bill. Getting opportunities in multiple series is great for her and seat time is everything at this point and time.

    Not to mention, it helps when her Dad is a big name for Ford as well with off-roading and Rally racing. Deegan is going to be a project, but she seems like the type to be a hard worker and have a desire to be better, so that in itself is a big part of the battle. Her first couple of ARCA starts were not that great, but we'll see how she gets on after some time in the series. Not to mention, it will keep her in the eyes of media and more opportunities for more sponsors in the future.

    Truex_rox 19 looks better than ever.

    A full-time run at ARCA with a great shot at the championship is a good foundation to build on.

    As soon as I saw "if it's for a win" I stopped reading. The only thing Decker is gonna even contend win is the race to the garage.

    I think it's a good move for her right now but Ford hasn't got a lot of rides in Xfinity. Hopefully Roush doesn't try to grab her to get back into the series. Best bet is getting in with Haas.

    Toyota camp is pretty full and she wasn't their best prospect. Plus they keep a revolving door of development drivers and push them along and she seems to want to progress slower.

    Decker will be in position to win when the recorded temperature in Hell is below freezing.

    I like that they're putting her in IMSA more than anything. I think she should be running a few West/East races as well.

    Pretty awesome news for her.

    With what I have read, Deegan has very little if any road racing experience so she is getting a pretty good shot to learn how. Cendric and Briscoe are pretty salty on road courses and they ran IMSA

    Deegan ran pretty well in the "ARCA" race at Sonoma last year.
