Last Time Out (Pinty’s Truck Race on Dirt – Start: 6th / Finish: 2nd): Hocevar kept his #42 Chevrolet Silverado in the top 10 throughout the first stage to start the night, earning him a ninth place finish finish in the first step. After a four-tire stoppage at the stage break, Hocevar battled traffic for a majority of stage two before eventually coming away with an eighth-place finish.
After choosing not to stop before the start of the final stage, Hocevar restarted fourth in the outside lane and made quick work of the trucks ahead to take the lead on lap 92 – the first of a career of 55 rounds. The 19-year-old led the night. Hocevar fended off a hard-charging John Hunter Nemechek despite four warnings between then and the end of the race that brought the peloton together.
Following an incident involving three trucks that prompted a lap 138 warning, Hocevar led the field to the green with six laps to go but was unable to hold off eventual race winner Ben Rhodes, who made the pass for the lead at turn four on the high side with five laps to go. Hocevar settled for a second place, matching his best career result (Charlotte, 2021).
