The unique connection that connects Nascar driver Hailie Deegan & f1 rookie Mick Schumacher

In all honesty, NASCAR and Formula 1 couldn’t be more different. However, there are a couple of things that connect the sport. One of them is the sponsors as some of them can be a bit ordinary. For example, Monster Energy is a joint sponsor of Lewis Hamilton and Kurt Busch. However, it appears that the Under Armor sportswear brand is sponsoring Haas F1 driver and NASCAR truck driver Hailie Deegan.

About his Under Armor association in 2019, Schumacher said: “Under Armor has a lot of experience working with professional athletes and a great deal of expertise in the manufacture of high-tech clothing and shoes. This helps me to increase my performance faster and more effectively, especially when it comes to optimizing my fitness and recovery times.

“In Portland they can test and analyze the cognitive abilities, physical fitness and regeneration abilities of an athlete, as well as optimize their diet. The Center for Performance Innovation offers many interesting opportunities for my future that I would like to fully exploit. “

What about Hailie Deegan and her Under Armor connection?

As it turns out, Deegan has been with the brand a lot longer than Schumacher. To be precise, she joined the brand’s youth offensive in 2017. Since then, she has never looked back and made her career leap forward. Hailie Deegan was quite successful in her racing craft, taking three wins in the K&N Pro Series. Additionally, she finished third on the ARCA series last year. That year she had the best 7th place in the Truck Series.

The 20-year-old is looking forward to the 2022 truck season and a chance to improve her position. The 7th place at Gateway will be a massive confidence boost that she could use as a stepping stone to greater success.
