Hailie Deegan is one of the top driver prospects in stock car racing, but she recently experienced a big-time fuel problem off the track.
The 17-year-old Deegan relayed a story Wednesday on Twitter about a “big mistake” she made during a trip to a gas station in her home state, California. Here’s the lowdown:

People responding to the post wrote that the $14,000 quote she mentioned was likely for a full engine replacement. Diesel engines and gasoline really don’t mix.
Fortunately for Deegan, her driving skills are superior to her refueling skills. She has a win and two top-fives in three starts in the K&N Pro Series this year. The win came on a last-lap pass at Las Vegas in February. She also earned a win last September as a 16-year-old.
Deegan was voted K&N Pro Series West Rookie of the Year for 2018.
