United We Win is Under Armour's year-round initiative celebrating culture, heritage and diversity of athletes around the world. In honor of Women's History Month, and rooted in our belief that sports have the power to inspire, change and unite the world, we are proud to share the stories from the women of Under Armour. 

Hailie Deegan can’t recall a life without racing. And though she might be one of the only women to ever compete NASCAR, the 17-year-old from California also doesn’t see herself as an anomaly. She just remembers loving the feel of the wind whipping through her hair as she sped through turns on her dirt bike as a young girl. Now, she loves the idea of pushing herself to her limit and finding ways to win.


Hailie grew up off-road racing, and her father, Brian Deegan, built a dirt oval in their backyard for her to practice driving her truck. She made the transition to asphalt racing in 2016. A year later, she participated in two CARS Super Late Model races in North Carolina, moving up to Pro Series racing in 2018.


Hailie’s victory in the 2019 NASCAR K&N Pro Series West season opener at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway Dirt Track made her the first female leader of the championship standings in NASCAR history.Now, Hailie is taking her role as a role model a bit more seriously. She doesn’t want to be "good." 


She wants to be the best driver – not just the best female driver – on the course.


“Being one of the girls that can go out there and win it shows other girls coming into the racing world that we can do it.”
