NASCAR fans applaud truck series driver for incredible gesture for girlfriend battling stage 4 lymphoma


Earlier, the NASCAR Truck race ended with victory for Stewart Friesen. However, the real story came from fourth-placed Carson Hocevar. Turns out he swapped his name sticker on his truck for a sticker with his girlfriend’s name on it. He did this as a tribute to her, as she was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin lymphoma.

Suffice to say that several fans were really delighted to see the beautiful gesture. They all agreed that it was a wonderful gesture on Hocevar’s part and offered to pray for her. On top of that, they hoped she would eventually pull through and recover. There were also plenty of fans sharing stories of beating Hodgkins Lymphoma or people they knew who were battling it.

How did Carson Hocevar fare in the NASCAR Truck race?

Admittedly, 4th place was a bit of a miracle, because his truck was loose all day. All in all, he had had an excellent 2022 Truck Series season with three Top 5 finishes, including this weekend’s result; he scored consecutive second places at Bristol and Darlington.
