Rajah Caruth is one of the lower-tier series’ most intriguing free agents. With GMS Racing shutting down, Caruth’s options are wide open for 2024, and he has had an interesting career to this point. Here are the best moments of Caruth’s career to this point.

2021 Shore Lunch 150 at Iowa: First ARCA Menards Series Start

In 2021, while Rajah Caruth was in the midst of his first career season in the ARCA Menards East Series, he participated in the Shore Lunch 150 at Iowa, an ARCA Menards Series race. At the age of 19, Caruth qualified 12th in a 23-car field, and he kept his nose clean all day, finishing in ninth on the lead lap. He would go on to race four more times that season, and he would finish in the top 10 three more times.

2022 Dutch Boy 150 at Kansas: Best ARCA Finish

In 2022, Caruth ran the full ARCA Menards Series schedule, and he went on to finish a solid third in the points. His best race came at Kansas Speedway in the Dutch Boy 150, as he went toe to toe with teammate Nick Sanchez.

Sanchez would get the better of Caruth on this day, but second place was Caruth’s best finish in his ARCA Menards Series career.

2022 Toyota 200 at Gateway: Craftsman Truck Series Debut

Later in 2022, Spire Motorsports tabbed Caruth to run in the Truck Series at World Wide Technology Raceway. It was not quite the same debut as he had in ARCA, but he still impressed. Caruth qualified 19th, and he would finish a solid 11th on the lead lap.

His performance on this day, along with his ARCA performance, netted him a full-time Truck Series ride in 2023.

2023 Buckle Up South Carolina 200 at Darlington: Best Truck Series Finish

The beginning of the 2023 season was difficult for Caruth, but a solid day awaited him at Darlington Raceway. A 13th-place qualifying effort tied for his best of the season at that time, and the 24 truck overcame a rash of cautions late in the race to finish a solid sixth. It is his best finish in the Craftsman Truck Series in his career.

2023 Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville: Best Qualifying Effort and First Truck Series Lap Led

The night may not have ended like he wanted to, but the Rackley Roofing 200 at Nashville was a night of firsts. He got his first top-3 qualifying effort by qualifying in third, and he went on to lead his first lap in the Truck Series later that night as well.

His day was done in by mechanical failures, but it was a taste of the front of the pack for Caruth.

Rajah Caruth has quite the future ahead of him, and who knows where he will be in the future. What other great moments will Caruth add to this list?
