Late last month, NASCAR driver Hailie Deegan was involved in a scary accident at Atlanta Motor Speedway.

Just a few weeks later, Deegan was forced to miss a race for other reasons. In a video she posted to YouTube, Deegan said she was skipping the latest race in fear for her life.

She claimed she saw a post from a fan who lives near her race shop that threatened to kill her boyfriend, Chase Cabre.

"His official words were, not that he's going to kill Chase, but that he's going to come ... and be the last thing Chase ever sees," Deegan said via the Daytona Beach News-Journal.

Here's more of the terrifying account:

A few minutes into the video, Deegan — who was voted the Truck Series' Most Popular Driver last year — then says that everything started with an "eight-page, handwritten letter" written to her truck team, David Gilliland Racing, stating that "he" was dating Deegan for multiple months and was in love with her.

"It kind of scared me a little bit, because I'd dealt with stalker situations before," said Deegan. "I went home that day, looked up the guy's name on the note, and figured out that he was getting catfished by a fake Hailie Deegan account."

The couple said they contacted FBI agents, NASCAR security and filed multiple police reports.

Hopefully the situation gets resolved soon.
