“Rajah has had a tremendous start to 2024,” Gary Davis, executive vice president of the Hendrick Automotive Group, said in a press release. “When you combine his on-track potential, how he represents himself and, his impressive social media presence, and the incredible fan support he receives, we couldn’t pass on supporting him for the entire season.”

Caruth is an alumnus of NASCAR’s Drive for Diversity Driver Development Program and is currently fifth in the Truck Series standings. With the backing of and a solid start to the season, Caruth aims to build off the early momentum and become a budding contender as the season progresses.

“It’s pretty special to have on my chest,” Caruth said in the release. “I think about Phoenix last year when I drove the Xfinity car for Hendrick Motorsports. That, within itself, was an incredible moment. Knowing that has extended their relationship with Spire Motorsports and my No. 71 team kind of leaves me speechless. I’m super grateful because they don’t do that for just anyone. For me, to be affiliated with that group and have their support is an honor. I’m excited to get on with the rest of the season. We’ve gotten off to a good start and I think the race in Las Vegas on Friday night is going to show our potential for the rest of the season.”

Caruth’s next race will be Friday’s Victoria’s Voice Foundation 200 from Las Vegas Motor Speedway (9 p.m. ET, FS1, MRN Radio, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).
