“I’m so enthused to bolster my NASCAR schedule this year by returning to Alpha Prime Racing for some Xfinity races,” Caruth said in a team release. “Tommy [Joe Martins, co-owner] and his family took a chance on me before I had even ran an ARCA [Menards Series] race, and to represent them as well as Caesar [Bacarella, co-owner], his family and every man and woman in the APR fold is a blessing. I can’t wait to build on the finishes we put together late last year and continue to show what both myself and this team is capable of.”

Caruth was previously announced for a full-time NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series ride with GMS Racing in 2023.

In 2022, Caruth made seven starts with the team, with a best finish of 12th at Martinsville Speedway.

He also scored eight top fives and 14 top 10s in a full ARCA Menards Series season last year.
