Carson Hocevar has been knocking on the door of victory lane as of late, and now he’ll have a brand-new sponsorship partner on his No. 42 Niece Motorsports Chevrolet Silverado in Worldwide Express.
Worldwide Express, which already sponsors Niece Motorsports’ No. 40 driver Dean Thompson and Ross Chastain, will now hop on as the primary partner on the No. 42 truck for eight races during the 2022 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series season.
The eight race primary sponsorship deal will kick off at Knoxville Raceway in June. Worldwide Express will also be Hocevar’s primary partner at Nashville, Pocono, IRP, Richmond, Bristol, Homestead and Phoenix.
Additionally, Hocevar will carry Worldwide Express as an associate sponsor this weekend at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
To say there is excitement from Hocevar due to the new partnership would be an understatement.
“I’m very excited to be a part of Worldwide Express’ driver lineup spanning both the NASCAR Cup Series and Truck Series,” Hocevar said in a team press release. “Worldwide Express’ continual and rapid growth in NASCAR, both in the Cup Series and Truck Series, proves its dedication and commitment to the sport, and I cannot wait to get behind the wheel of the No. 42 Worldwide Express Chevrolet Silverado.
“I’m looking forward to representing a nationally-recognized organization like Worldwide Express both on and off the track, and the extension of their support within Niece Motorsports is unparalleled in the Truck Series.”
For Worldwide Express, they like what they’ve seen from Niece Motorsports and are ready to expand their partnership to Hocevar’s truck.
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Niece Motorsports and add Carson to our growing WWEX Racing portfolio, which has amplified our brand visibility and delivered tangible benefits to our business,” said Rob Rose, President of Worldwide Express. “Carson is poised for victory as one of the hottest drivers in the Truck Series, and we look forward to supporting him and the Niece Motorsports team as they race for the championship.”
Team owner Al Niece feels a deal like this shows a lot about the belief in his team from Worldwide Express.
“It means a lot to us as an organization to have a company like Worldwide Express believe in us and to continue to grow their involvement with our team,” said team owner Al Niece. “It really is amazing to see how this organization has grown in the last five years. We have a lot of great people on board that are working hard to get Worldwide Express in victory lane.”
Hocevar, 19, sits eighth in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series point standings after nine races this season. Hocevar has finishes of second, second, 15th and fourth over his last four NCWTS starts.
