Hailie Deegan has parted ways with AM Racing. She announced the departure on her social media following the Chicago Street Race.

This comes two days after she was not in the car for the Street Race. Instead, NASCAR Cup Series regular Joey Logano was in the ride.

“Beginning this season, | had a lot of excitement and hope in taking my next step in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” Deegan said in a statement. “It’s something I’ve been working towards for years and always dreamt about. | worked hard to prepare for this season after the team pursued me to drive their car. Unfortunately, it has not turned out the way that | expected. There are always several reasons within a race team as to why things do or do not work, but sadly our goals no longer align. With that being said, myself and AM Racing will be parting ways.
