What’s Happening?

Carson Kvapil is one of NASCAR’s most exciting up-and-coming drivers, but his plans for 2025 remain a mystery. Will the multi-time CARS Tour Champion end up full-time in NASCAR, or could he race part-time once again?

  • The son of Travis Kvapil, Carson Kvapil, is 21 years old. He is the two-time defending CARS Late Model Stock Tour Champion and won the CARS Super Model Tour Championship in 2021. This season, he has been impressive in limited Xfinity Series action, with three top-fives in five starts.
  • However, the right opportunity needs to open up, and Kvapil needs to bring performance and funding to a race team. Does he have enough?
  • Fans hope to see Kvapil get a genuine, full-time Xfinity Series opportunity. They feel he’s earned it, and it’s time to see what he can do at higher levels.

JR Motorsports (Xfinity Series)

Carson Kvapil drives for JRM in the CARS Tour, meaning the connection is strong. Ideally, he would jump up to the Xfinity Series with the team, but is that opportunity open? Connor Zilisch is reportedly slated to come in thanks to an alliance with Trackhouse, so is there room for Kvapil?

Kvapil could slot in if Sam Mayer moves up to Cup or Brandon Jones does not renew his contract after 2024. It’s not impossible for JRM to field a fifth full-time entry for Zilisch, so there might be an opening for Kvapil. If enough funding is provided, there could be a full-time ride.

Spire Motorsports (Truck Series)

If Kvapil wants to stay in the Chevy camp, he could join the Craftsman Truck Series and Spire Motorsports. Again, Kvapil needs funding, but he has a small connection to Spire thanks to starting his first Truck Series race at Bristol with the team in 2023. Spire can win races, and Kvapil would be in good equipment.

This could be a great landing spot for Kvapil if the funding is available. In recent years, we’ve seen the likes of Zane Smith, Carson Hocevar, and Todd Gilliland jump straight from Trucks to Cup, and Kvapil could be the next if he performs well.

Kaulig Racing (Xfinity Series)

In June, Bob Pockrass reported that Kaulig Racing is still figuring out who will drive for them in 2025. If a spot opens up for Kvapil, maybe if Josh Williams leaves or SVG and/or A.J. Allmendinger moves up to Cup, could Kvapil slot in? According to Pockrass, funding will decide at least the Cup Series rides for Kaulig, so the Xfinity Series might be the same story.

Kvapil has been sponsored by Chevy Truck Season for two of the five Xfinity Series races this season, with Clarience Technologies taking the other three races. Again, if he does not bring the money, he may be a tough sell to Kaulig in the Xfinity Series.

McAnally-Hilgemann Racing (Truck Series)

McAnally-Hilgemann Racing is enjoying a stellar season with Christian Eckes, who has won three races and is leading the points over Corey Heim. However, Bob Pockrass reports that Eckes is attracting some attention from a Cup Series team, Front Row Motorsports. If Eckes leaves, could Kvapil slot in?

With NAPA Auto Parts support, Kvapil may not need to worry as much about funding with this team. It would also be top-notch equipment that could definitely win races.

Rackley W.A.R. (Truck Series)

Rackley W.A.R. is a similar story to McAnally-Hilgemann Racing, with Rackley Roofing sponsoring the team, potentially making it a good landing spot for Kvpil. However, is there going to be a seat open for Kvapil?

Ty Dillon currently races full-time, and Dawson Sutton just made his series debut for the team at Nashville. If Sutton is coming up the pipeline, is there a place for Kvapil, regardless of whether or not Rackley W.A.R. fields two full-time trucks?
