Have you ever tried an ice bath? Apparently, most high-performance athletes do it and it is said to be great for recovery. However, NASCAR Truck Series driver Hailie Deegan might not think of doing it ever again.

In the video we see Hailie trying to sit in a deep freezer filled with water and ice. She keeps resisting, then finally sits in it, only to scream. One of her friends tells her that she completed a good 25 seconds and urges her to soak in further, also asking her to take deep breaths.

But Deegan refuses and jumps out, claiming that her legs hurt due to the extreme cold.

In the captions Deegan wrote, First and last time I’ll ever be trying a ice bath😂. Anyone who knows me, knows that I hate being cold so this was miserable.

One user in the comments section asked, “Where’s the ice??” To which Deegan replied, “it’s a deep freezer so the water can stay super cold at all times and not having to put the ice in every time you use it. There is massive 2 foot long icicles in it from freezing over”

While we understand her personal life has been full of fun moments, let us take a look at how her NASCAR Truck career has been going so far.

Hailie Deegan has had a fairly disappointing season in the Truck Series

Deegan would have wished that her 2022 season in the Truck Series would propel her into the Xfinity Series soon, but that does not seem to be the case.

Her highest finish this season was in 10th place at Mid-Ohio. Moreover, she’s also been involved in multiple crashes that have even ended her races, although not all of those crashes were her fault.

Deegan is currently seated in 21st on the points table and with just a handful of races remaining this year, she would have to be at the top of her game if she wishes to get a better or at least the same rank as the previous season standing i.e. 17th.
