Is it OK to splice ridge boards. This one is in a carport like area.

As others have said, yes. I will add that this assumes the ridge board is not a ridge beam (a 2x is almost never big enough to be a ridge beam). This assumes that ceiling joists are present (i assume that the four 1x board are partially supporting ceiling joists. When ceiling joists are present and properly installed then the ridge if not structural. No ceiling joists-then ridge beam is needed unless other suitable ties are present.
