This got me curious and I tried it in SpartaDOS using CIO command #40 (load and run)  It works.  Here's the code, a little messy and the IOCB is hardcoded, but that probably doesn't matter:

; void loadrun (char *filename);

        .export         _loadrun
        .import         popax
        .include        "atari.inc"
        .importzp      ptr1

_loadrun:
        jsr popax           ; pop filename pointer
        sta ptr1            ; lo
        stx ptr1+1          ; hi

        ldx #$20

        lda ptr1
        sta ICBAL,x
        lda ptr1+1
        sta ICBAH,x

        lda #40
        sta ICCOM,x

        lda #4
        sta ICAX1,x

        lda #0
        sta ICAX2,x

        jsr CIOV
        rts
