ARCA Menards Series driver Carson Hocevar is set for nine Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series starts in 2020 with Niece Motorsports, the team announced Friday.
Hocevar, 16, joins a driver lineup that includes full-time driver Ty Majeski.
Hocevar made two Truck Series starts in 2019, finishing 25th at Eldora and 23rd at Phoenix.
He has 15 ARCA starts over the last two years, earning six top fives and 12 top-10 finishes.
A native of Portage, Michigan, Hocevar has won 15 United States Auto Club championships and 79 Quarter Midget National races.
“I’m really looking forward to this opportunity,” Hocevar said in a press release. “Niece Motorsports has invested a lot in their program in the last few years, and the results are really showing. I’m excited to be able to work with and learn from drivers like Ty Majeski and Ross Chastain. I’m thrilled to get in race-winning equipment and hopefully learn a lot and compete at a high level.”
“Carson has proven to be a very talented young racer, and we are looking forward to him continuing that with our team,” said team owner Al Niece in the press release. “We are excited to prove that last season wasn’t a fluke and are looking to run strong again in 2020.”
