17-year-old Hailie Deegan used a bump-and-run on her teammate to become the first female victor of a NASCAR K&N West Series race.

One of the most popular up-and-coming drivers, Deegan had a long list of goals for the 2018 season, and now through 12 of the 14 races on the K&N Pro Series West schedule, she can check all of them off.

But Deegan hasn't just caught the attention of those who closely follow the developmental regional NASCAR series. "It doesn't get any better than this". Deegan had two previous runner-up finishes in the series and said after the race she had imagined the winning move the night before while lying in bed.

The daughter of motocross great Brian Deegan took the lead from Bill McAnally Racing teammate Cole Rouse on the white-flag lap. "And I found that Turn 1 spot".

"I was doing it to some other people just getting right under them to get them a little light to get them, not wrecking loose, nothing insane, but enough to just get a little under them and make the pass happen. I did it, we executed, and we made it happen".

"She doesn't lift and drives into me, gets me completely sideways", Rouse said. "We were going to win that race if it was run clean, but unfortunately it wasn't".
