Hocevar To Finish Out Cup Season With Legacy M.C.

Though Mike Rockenfeller will be at the wheel of the No. 42 Legacy Motor Club Chevrolet this weekend at the Charlotte (N.C.) Motor Speedway ROVAL, Carson Hocevar will take over driving duties for the remaining season.

The NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series regular has made five Cup Series starts with Legacy Motor Club this year, earning four top-20 results in his limited time with the team. Hocevar’s best finish in the No. 42 was 11th at Bristol (Tenn.) Motor Speedway.

“Happy to have the rest of the Cup season after the ROVAL,” Hocevar wrote in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter. “Earlier this year, I had thought I may never get a shot in a Cup car, and by end of this year, I will have 10+ starts. Truly blessed and thankful.”

The 20-year-old will resume his position in the driver’s seat of the Sunseeker Resort Chevrolet at Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the South Point 400 on Oct. 15. To finish out the season, Hocevar will also make starts at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway, Martinsville (Va.) Speedway and Phoenix (Ariz.) Raceway.

In addition, Hocevar will be contending for the Truck Series championship in the meantime, as he is ranked second in the standings with two races to go — 10 points behind leader Corey Heim. 

Hocevar has won three Truck Series races in his No. 42 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet this season.
