Pro Racer Hailie Deegan Coming to Carlisle Ford Nationals June 5

Ford lovers flock to the Carlisle PA Fairgrounds to enjoy the past, present and future of the brand.  That timeline not only includes cars and car parts, but guests too.  This year’s event, presented by Meguiar’s, runs June 4-6 and welcomes for the first time, pro racer Hailie Deegan.

Deegan is coming to Carlisle on Saturday, June 5 only.  Her appearance times and on-grounds meet and greet location is TBD at this time, but details will be posted to the Carlisle Ford Nationals page in the days/weeks leading up to the event.

Once at Carlisle, she’ll bring with her an impressive resume for someone who will be just a few weeks shy of turning 20.  A Ford Racing Development driver, the Deegan name might sound familiar.  Her dad Brian is a famous professional racer himself, as he’s active in freestyle motocross, car and truck racing and was a founding member of the Metal Mulisha.

While the younger Deegan might share her dad’s last name, she’s successfully carved out a name of her own since 2012.  Deegan started racing at the age of eight and to date, she is the ONLY female ever to compete in the Lucas Oil Off Road Series and in 2016 she was named the circuit’s Driver of the Year.  With Ford Performance, she’s full-time in the ARCA Menards Series and also select events in the Mustang GT4 with Multimatic Motorsports in the IMSA Michelin Pilot Challenge!  In the pandemic riddled 2020 season, she started with a bang, finishing second in the Daytona ARCA race in February.

During her one-day appearance at Carlisle, she’ll host a meet & greet with fans, sign autographs and even take pictures.  Meeting Deegan at Carlisle is FREE with admission to the event itself either as a vendor, spectator or National Parts Depot Showfield participant.  Discounted single day admission tickets are available online now through event weekend and those looking to show can save 10% by registering now through May 3.  After that date, registration shifts to full price and is still available online through event week, but relevant materials must be picked up versus being mailed with an early registration and savings.

Regardless of how or when you make a commitment to attend, doing so yields access to thousands of cars and trucks spanning the history of the brand, thousands of vendors and midway partners selling millions of automotive pieces and parts, special displays and so much more.

As an added bonus, if you attend the show on Friday or Saturday, you can return on Sunday for FREE with your previous day’s event ticket.  This is a great way to enjoy the final hours of the event without larger crowds, watch the awards parade, shop for last minute deals within the automotive flea market or snap some great unobstructed pics of the special indoor displays.  Save your ticket stub from your initial visit and enjoy the final day FREE with Carlisle Events and the 2021 Carlisle Ford Nationals.
