Look Who's Legal: Berlin Pole Winner Hocevar Gets Drivers License

Despite being a stock car driver from the time he was 14, and despite winning the General Tire Pole Award for the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards race at Berlin in 2018, and despite a pair of top-five finishes in the ARCA Racing Series, you still have to wait until you are of age to be licensed to drive in a street car. In Michigan that means you need to be at least 17 years of age and have two different learner's permits for a year.

Berlin pole winner Carson Hocevar is still just 15 years of age, not quite old enough to be out on open road by himself despite routinely driving inches away from a couple dozen other drivers at speeds approaching 150 miles per hour on some of the nations toughest race tracks. But he is now legal to drive on the road, as long as he has a licensed driver with him, in this case his mother Amy. So he may not be fully licensed just yet, but he's now legal to be out on the open road.

Carson will return to the ARCA Racing Series presented by Menards in an expanded role in 2019, as he will drive for team owner Mike Bursely in the No. 35 KBR Development Chevrolet. They have announced their intentions to compete for the Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge championship, the eleven-race championship within the overall series championship on tracks, both paved and dirt, one mile in length and less.

The first Sioux Chief Short Track Challenge event will be at Five Flags Speedway in Pensacola, Florida on March 9, 2019. The complete event schedule, including broadcast network and times, will be released shortly.
