Carson Hocevar announced on Tuesday that he will be joining Spire Motorsports/Kaulig Racing for 2024. It will be his first full-time Cup Series season.

What’s Happening?

After months of speculation, Carson Hocevar officially announced he will be driving the 77 car for Spire Motorsports in 2024. Hocevar joins the team after a career year in the Truck Series with three wins and his first Cup Series starts in 2023 with Spire Motorsports and Legacy Motor Club. Spire Motorsports’ signing of Hocevar completes a three-driver lineup for 2024 including Corey LaJoie, Zane Smith, and Hocevar.

You Need to Know:

  • Hocevar came onto people’s radar this Silly Season following both an impressive Craftsman Truck Series season and some impressive part-time Cup Series starts with Spire Motorsports and Legacy Motor Club. This came despite not winning a National Touring Series race before this season, and he also went winless in 16 ARCA Menards Series starts. Spire Motorsports was long seen as a favorite to land Hocevar given how he performed at Gateway for the team before a brake rotor failure. According to his Twitch Stream following the race, the sponsors include a combination of Legacy Motor Club Sponsors (such as Sunseeker and Wendy’s) and Spire sponsors (such as Ferris and Gainbridge)
  • Spire Motorsports continues its crazy 2024 Silly Season. Not only have they signed Hocevar, but they also signed Corey LaJoie and Zane Smith for 2024, which expands the operation to three cars. They also will move into a new shop in 2024 as a part of the acquisition of Kyle Busch Motorsports.
  • Fans are excited to see Carson Hocevar joining Spire in 2024. Some are unsure whether or not this is the best place for Hocevar. Others tried to show sarcastic shock at the announcement that certainly no one saw coming.

Around the Garage

Legacy Motor Club with a proud teacher moment.

Carson Hocevar has immediately put out his own merch, a Dirt to Daytona cover art-inspired t-shirt.

Spire put out their own announcement Tweet regarding Hocevar.

In the Stands

I can sense the sarcasm in FallboiXX’s keyboard clicks.

byron.hq is excited to see Hocevar in the 77 next year.

chaseelliottfan924 approves.

Nick believes that Spire should have gotten a better ride than the 77 car for Spire Motorsports.

Deserved, certainly so Phantom.

GWIZ is a fan of Hocevar.

Who knew we would see Dein Sanders collab with NASCAR in this way.

On Your Screen

Brock Beard is excited to see what Hocevar could do, and he is particularly excited to see Chevy hanging on to Hocevar.

From the Pressbox

So were we Kevin Nix. Not really, but you get the point.

Jordan Bianchi specifies that it is a multi-year deal with Spire, meaning that Hocevar will stay beyond 2024 as well.

One can only wonder what Hocevar can do in 2024. He may be a raw prospect, but he has a lot of raw speed. It all depends on whether or not he can consistently perform in the Cup Series throughout a 36-race season.
