iK9 to Sponsor Newcomer Hailie Deegan in ARCA Menards Series Starts with Venturini Motorsports

Hailie Deegan will carry sponsorship from iK9, a leader in canine security services, in her six-race ARCA Menards Series schedule with Venturini Motorsports.

The company will serve as her primary sponsor at Pocono on May 31 and will be an associate sponsor in the other five races, starting May 19 at Toledo. Other events include Madison on June 14, Elko on July 13, Lucas Oil Raceway on October 5, and Kansas Speedway on October 18. iK9 will also be Deegan’s primary sponsor in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East event at Bristol on April 6.

Deegan earned her second career victory in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series West season opener at the Dirt Track at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on February 28. She became the first female winner in series history with her win at Meridian last September. She ended 2018 as the K&N Pro Series West rookie of the year, and she’s the current series championship points leader based on her win at Las Vegas.

“We think Hailie is an exceptional talent who has proven to be an up-and-coming leader in the racing world,” said Landon Ash, founder of Xtreme Concepts, the parent company of iK9. “Motorsports is a powerful marketing platform and this partnership with Hailie is great for the sport, but also for iK9 and Xtreme Concepts as we reinforce our commitment to NASCAR and the development of its future stars. Hailie is a strong personality who strengthens our existing lineup of Jeffrey Earnhardt, Kyle Busch, and Brandon Jones. They’re all specialized athletes who align very well with iK9 as we provide the skills and support necessary for our clients to care for their highly specialized dogs.”

I am grateful for this opportunity to build my NASCAR career and I am extremely proud to represent iK9 along with Toyota, TRD, Monster Energy and Craftsman,” she said. “Partnerships are key to earning these kind of opportunities, and iK9’s mission appeals to who I want to be as a racecar driver and also as a person.”

The Sioux Chief PowerPEX200 at Toledo Speedway is slated for 2 pm ET on Sunday, May 19. It will be televised live on MAVTV.

I'm expecting her to take time to get use to the cars and the Illmor engines and tracks she'll be going to for the first time and then after she gets her feet wet with everything...I'm expecting great things in this series for her. Best of luck hailie and have a great rest of the season.
