Hailie Deegan is gaining more and more popularity. Her qualities are unquestionable. Deegan is a frequent guest on the podcasts, and she doesn't shy away from giving her opinion in public. Speaking to Monster Energy's Unleashed podcast, Deegan revealed where today's NASCAR drivers go wrong the most.
Namely, most of them don't show their character, they don't often go out in public, and it's hard for fans to connect with them. “I feel like generationally, but I feel like what doesn’t help it is the lack of personality is shown.
People like to relate to other people, and it’s hard to relate to someone and care about someone’s career if there’s not much there, not much being shown of them, and them saying nothing. So I think that there’s a big lack in that,”-Hailie Deegan said in Monster Energy’s Unleashed podcast.
Hailie Deegan talks about NASCAR fans
Deegan thinks NASCAR fans are some of the best fans out there. The connection they make with the driver lasts a long time and never ends. However, in order to achieve such a connection with fans, you also need to show your personality and your true self.
“I think there are two different points. I feel like drivers, as a driver, you have to want to. In all honesty, NASCAR fans are the most devoted fans, some of the most devoted fans. When they like someone, they are going to stick with that person their whole life,” Deegan continued.
Deegan emphasized that the love of NASCAR is generational. “And I feel like what drivers lack though for new fans and, say a dad that was committed to being a Jimmie Johnson fan, well his son now is going to be watching racing a little bit, he could be devoted to being an Alex Bowman fan,” Deegan added.
