Hailie Deegan impressed everyone yesterday at Daytona when she finished 2nd
Though she did cause an accident, but all Rookies deserve one mulligan. She unfortunately used hers already.
Not lost in translation was Michael Self’s performance. He led the most laps from the Pole position and captured his first win of 2020. He has 8 wins in 40 starts, but his career spans over 6 years.
Yes, he won last night, but do not lie to yourself. His statistics are lackluster at best. He might be consistent, but in ARCA today, wins matter the most. Take last year’s championship race at Kansas for example. He and his teammate Christian Eckes had an equal shot to win it, but he was outmatched by Eckes convincingly.
He might be in the best situation to win it all this year, but he will probably give it away again to Hailie Deegan.
