READING, Pa. (July 1, 2016) — EnerSys, maker of Odyssey-brand batteries, has become a sponsor of 14-year-old race driver Hailie Deegan in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS).
Ms. Deegan — daughter of action sports legend Brian Deegan — is competing this year in the LOORRS Modified Kart class, where she is the points leader after the first six of this season's races.
She also runs in LOORRS' regional series in the Mod Kart class and is part of the NASCAR Drive for Diversity program, which is racing in the Bojangles Summer Shootout at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Ms. Deegan scored her first Mod Kart Championship victory last year, and won the LOORRS Junior Kart 2 class championship in 2013 at age 11, becoming the first girl ever to capture the championship.
“I am really looking forward to this season of racing multiple series both on dirt and pavement,” Ms. Deegan said. “I want to race every week and continue to develop my driving skills. I just love racing. Having the power of Odyssey batteries and their support gives me the best chance to compete for a win every time I am on the track,”
Ms. Deegan's #538 Mod Kart will sport the Odyssey battery logo on the quarter panel in LOORRS events and on the B post of her Legends car and she will sport the logo on her driver's suit, posters and social media.
