Carson Hocevar will be back in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series when the series heads to ISM Raceway in November.

He will be piloting the No. 56, which is normally run by Hill Motorsports, in a partnership with Jordan Anderson Racing, according to a release by the latter team.

“I’m confident that he’s going to make us proud in Phoenix,” team owner Jordan Anderson said in a team statement. “His maturity and passion for the sport is a great combination that’s going to serve him well moving forward.”

A 16-year-old from Portage, Mich., Hocevar made his NGOTS in the Eldora Dirt Derby, piloting the JAR No. 3 to a 25th-place finish after getting caught in a late wreck.

“This sport is so crazy at times, and the fact that I’m able to get back to the track before the season is over is a dream come true and something I’ve worked so hard for,” Hocevar said.

Hocevar has 15 starts in the ARCA Menards Series since 2018, with two poles, six top fives and a dozen top 10s. In 12 starts this season, he has a best finish of third at Salem Speedway.

The No. 56 is currently 30th in the NGOTS owner standings out of 56 total teams, with 139 points through eight events.

The Lucas Oil 150 will be Friday, Nov. 8 at 8:30 p.m. ET, with TV coverage on Fox Sports 1.
