Despite a last lap crash at World Wide Technology Raceway at Gateway during the Camping World Truck Series Toyota 200 and a trip to the hospital, 19 year old Carson Hocevar has announced that he intends to race this weekend when the Camping World Truck Series returns to Sonoma after a 20 year absence.

Just in case he is unable to complete the race, Hocevar has asked Daniel Suarez to be on standby and take over if needed.  A driver needs only to start a race to get credit for running that race and to earn any points earned.

Hocevar received an injury to his right ankle after being hit on his driver’s side by Tyler Hill on the last lap of the race at WWTR.

Hocevar had asked for help but exited the truck on his own before being placed on a stretcher and taken to the infield care center where he was later transported to a local hospital for further evaluation and treatment.

On Sunday afternoon, Hocevar took to social media to updated fans; saying only that he was awaiting word of the injury to his ankle.
