A short track somewhere
idk but that was a very Danica level chewing out of Lawless, even there expressions, it's pretty amazing how similar they are at this point.

She needs to get it going on the track and block all this other stuff out.

It was funny that she went off on Lawless Alan after what Johnny Sauter did to her.

Like the kid in school who has their lunch money taken from them by a bully and chooses to fight a sixth grader after school instead.

In her defense I think the Lawless one was the more recent incident, that's why she was most upset about it post race. Drivers have good memories, but the most recent one stings the most

From what I read they were racing and a couple of times she passed him clean and then he kept running over her to pass back. Just stupid stuff.

Are you having some flashbacks from school again?

I would like to know what her expectations were....She yells, he listens.....She yells, he yells....She punches, he takes it.....Certainly not a fight? Right? I mean at the end of the day, the ultimate threat of getting punched in the face isn't there....

Are you trying to say she needs to hit the guy to get her point across?

She's Jennifer Jo Cobb 2.0
That certainly is the level of respect she receives. With all the hype and money behind her, it's getting to be crunch time that she finally shows something. I get that midpacker idiots drive over her, but the solution to that is avoid the midpack. With the equipment she has, she is running out of excuses imho.

DBC said they had listened to a radio transmission from another team (wouldn't say who) that the spotter told their drive to just basically drive thru her til she was out of the way on a restart. People are just using her up. But like I've said before in a lot of cases she's just like Danica, with that level of equipment she shouldn't be back there with those drivers to start with

You get in a guy's face, he had better listen or that threat needs to exist. It doesn't with her for all of the obvious reasons. Same thing with Danica. It is an issue with a sport that promotes and celebrates the brawls. Just is.

I think so much of that is rooted in how she is promoted. She needs to quiet down a bit, and just do her job. She will be heard when she starts winning--probably not before then.

That's nonsense. The vast majority of drivers in the series drive their whole career without a fist fight.

I agree. However, this is about bark without bite. I know you get this. Her only solution is to STFU, handle it on the track, and stop these attention getting stunts of getting into another driver's face....Made for a good YouTube video though--she is certainly winning there.

That's nuts, drivers argue all the time, maybe you are having a problem because she is a female. Sure seems so.

Arguing after the race never accomplishes anything. If somebody repeatedly puts you in the wall you gotta put them in the wall or they will keep doing it. Like everything else in life, if you let people punk you your gonna keep getting punked.

Not too sure about that. I don't think there is any cut and dried solution. I have watched successful drivers for years that didn't do that. I don't think anybody would say Johnson was a rough and tumble driver, Jr. or Bill Elliott, plenty of them that don't drive that way.

A few top tier drivers that raced clean got the respect and nobody tried to punk them so they didn't need to retaliate. Though they did when needed like when Jr took out Kyle Busch and Jimmie took out bifle. It just didn't happen often.

Keep in mind, prior to getting into trucks, Deegan had a reputation of just driving through people. All three of her west series wins were her driving through the car in front of her - and in some cases, we’re not talking a bump and run, we’re talking sending it.

One of my favorite sayings: Ain’t no fun when the rabbit’s got the gun.

People love her aggression, love when she drive through people, love when she “doesn’t take any ****,” but they don’t like it when she’s shown the same respect she’s shown to her competitors on and off the track.

She’s still a kid and she still has a lot of maturing to do as a driver and a person. Otherwise she risks being the next Danica Patrick or JJC.

Has this girl ever run up to the back of the top ten and stayed there for 5 laps?

Yeah, I heard her say that too, but isn't the definition of taking ****, getting wrecked, and not doing anything about it? What. Has. She. Done? **** taken.

Honestly I think she needs a couple starts in Xfinity to see how she does. Trucks have become such a wreck show that it's getting pretty hard to judge talent

This is embarrassing. Its from a fan group lbut still. I like Deegan but this is too far. Let’s get a win before you compare yourself to iron head.
