Hailie Deegan and AM Racing have parted ways after 17 races together in the Xfinity Series. Joey Logano drove the No. 15 Ford to a top-10 finish over the weekend at the Chicago Street Course.

“Beginning this season, I had a lot of excitement and hope in taking my next step in the NASCAR Xfinity Series,” Deegan said in a statement posted on Twitter. “It’s something I’ve been working towards for years and always dreamt about. I worked hard to prepare for this season after the ream pursued me to drive their car. Unfortunately, it has not turned out the way that I 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.

“The only thing I am focused on is getting back to being competitive. That is all that matters to me. I’m working as quick as possible to find the best opportunities to get back to the track.”

AM Racing confirmed the separation.

“AM Racing and Hailie Deegan have decided to part ways, effective immediately,” the team said. “We are grateful for Hailie’s contributions and dedication as the driver of the No. 15 Ford Mustang during her time with the race team.”

No driver has been announced for the No. 15 car for this weekend’s Xfinity race at Pocono Raceway.
