I hope so too. I'm enthused they tried it, and equally frustrated with what looks more like lack of track prep than proper dry slick prep. I know it's been hot and dry in Las Vegas...as it is every year at this time. Not sure why they were quite so ill-prepared to provide a raceable surface. It looks like a bomber class race. Bell is apparently flying through the field with a severely damaged car.Hopefully it doesn't discourage them from more dirt in the future, but this track seems to have no idea what its doing.
She did a nice job getting back to the front! If she had taken it a little easier early in the race I think she could have won. She was very aggressive and made a few rough moves. Sheldon. Derek thorn did a nice job as well. He was running second and Sheldon knocked him out of the way,fell out of the top ten. The Chris bell thing kinda sucked... shame to see him black flagged with 2 to go . His car was pretty bashed apart as well (front and back, missing hood, etc.. all cosmetic though) from the lap one mess.
OMG SOI thanks sooo much for posting this. I missed the race nice recap.Hailie Deegan not satisfied with historic run in Las Vegas K&N race
“Coming back in here everyone was like, ‘Good job, a top-five.’ And I'm like, 'Top-five, what are you talking about?'’’ Deegan said Friday at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
“Everyone is saying, ‘You finished second, highest finishing place for a girl.’ And I’m like, 'No, I qualified on pole, this is actually back a position.' It’s those things. First girl to qualify on pole but I don’t want to be the best girl, I want to be the best driver.
The runner-up finish was Deegan’s second of the season, equaling her showing at Douglas County (Ore.) Speedway earlier this season. She has four top-fives and nine top-10s in 11 races this season.
