Carson Hocevar to Honor Johnny Benson with Bristol Paint Scheme

Carson Hocevar returns to Bristol Motor Speedway in the traditional configuration for the second time.  In his first start at ‘The World’s Fastest Half Mile’, Hocevar finished 17th.  Hocevar finished 21st earlier this season on the dirt at Bristol.

The No. 42 CircleBDiecast.com Chevrolet Silverado will carry a throwback scheme to fellow Michigan-native Johnny Benson.

“This scheme means a lot to me, because I remember watching races where Johnny ran this paint scheme,” said Hocevar.  “Being a kid, Johnny was one to root for in the Truck Series, and now to know him and have him mentor me, it’s an honor to pay tribute to a scheme that I’ve always loved and grew up cheering for.  I’m glad CircleBDiecast.com came on board to help us bring this to life.  Having them make a diecast of this truck is the cherry on top for me.”

Benson, a fourteen-time winner in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, took this scheme to victory lane at Bristol Motor Speedway in 2007, leading 84 of 200 laps.
