Daytona International Speedway, Daytona Beach, FL — February 8, 2020
In one of the preliminary races leading up to the Daytona 500, Hailie Deegan took 2nd place behind Michael Self in the Lucas Oil 200 ARCA event. Deegan became the 2nd woman to post a runner-up finish at the famed tri-oval. Shawna Robinson was the first to accomplish the feat in the 1999 ARCA race at Daytona.
With a possible chance to win on the final lap, Deegan chose to follow Self across the finish line and guard her record-tying position instead of gambling, pulling out of line, and possibly ending up in the middle of the pack
