“I’m really excited for another opportunity to get back behind the wheel of one of these trucks,” Carpenter said in a team release. “I learned a lot about these trucks last season and definitely feel like we have something to prove this year.”

The No. 41 has been driven by Travis Pastrana and Ross Chastain so far in 2023. Pastrana finished 13th at Daytona International Speedway and Chastain was 24th at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Chad Chastain and Bayley Currey will also join Carpenter in the truck this year.

The Weather Guard Truck Race on Dirt will take place April 8 at 8 p.m. ET. FOX Sports 1 will broadcast.
