As the first ever Screen to Speed by Pennzoil live event is set to take place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway this weekend, one of the top competitors in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series will be helping to promote the sim racing competition on her real-world Ford F-150.
NASCAR driver Hailie Deegan is slated to run the No. 13 Screen to Speed Ford for Thorsport Racing on Friday night in the Victoria’s Voice Foundation 200 presented by Westgate Resorts at Las Vegas. The race starts at 9:00 pm ET on 3rd March.
The Ford F-150 truck of the 2021 and 2022 NASCAR Truck Series Most Popular Driver will feature the Screen to Speed logo on the hood, as well as Pennzoil logos on the rear quarter panels. It’ll be bright yellow and hard to miss under the lights at the 1.5-mile oval.
Screen to Speed has tremendous support behind it, including from the likes of Ford Performance, Pennzoil, Next Level Racing and most recently, Fanatec, which has signed on to provide racing wheels and pedals for the competitors in the in-person competition on Saturday.
Not only will Deegan be promoting the truck on the real-world race track on Friday night, but she will also join the commentary team for the Screen to Speed finale. The top women sim racers from around the globe have been invited to participate in the first Screen to Speed finale live at the track following weeks of time attack competition on the iRacing platform.
The “for women, by women” event will be awarding $15,000, a Next Level Racing simulator and a test drive in a Kelly-Moss Porsche race car alongside Kelly-Moss driver and former W Series competitor Sabré Cook. Deegan will now be the one presenting the winner the $15,000 check on Saturday.
Be sure to check out the event, which will be streamed live on 4th March at 5:00 p.m. PST (Las Vegas local time) on the Init Esports’ Twitch and YouTube channels, as well as on the ESTV streaming service. In the case of Twitch in particular, the broadcast will be pinned on the front page of the Twitch website.
