READING, Pa. – EnerSys, a leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications and the manufacturer of ODYSSEY batteries, has announced their renewal as an official sponsor of Hailie Deegan in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series.
EnerSys has sponsored Deegan, 16, since 2016. She was the first female to win a championship in the LOORRS, winning both the Modified Kart (2016) and the Junior 2 Kart (2013) titles.
Deegan is a member of the NASCAR Next Class; the youngest driver to be selected and the only female. Deegan is also running the full NASCAR K&N Pro Series West schedule this season for Bill McAnally Racing, as well as select East races.
She is the daughter of action sports legend Brian Deegan.
“ODYSSEY batteries powered me to both of my championships. They were one of my first sponsors and they have always believed in me,” said Deegan. “I am excited to continue this relationship with them as I continue my evolution as a racer.”
As an official sponsor, the ODYSSEY battery logo will appear on the quarter panels of Deegan’s No. 38 Toyota pickup in the Pro-Lite class, as well as on the Deegan Racing transporter.
In addition to the ODYSSEY battery logo prominently displayed on the race vehicles, the logo will also appear on Deegan’s driver’s suit, posters and social media.
“We are very proud to be continuing our relationship with Hailie. She is one of the most promising of the new generation of drivers and shows there is a bright future for the sport,” said Dave McMullen, senior director of reserve power marketing at EnerSys. “We look forward to having ODYSSEY batteries provide the start to another season for her.”
