Raphael Lëssard has added sponsorship from Canac for the 2020 NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series season, Kyle Busch Motorsports announced Tuesday, March 10.

Lëssard’s No. 4 KBM truck will carry the sponsor for the first time at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Friday, March 20.

“It’s awesome for our team and for motorsports in Canada,” Lëssard said in a team release. “A Quebec company of this importance that adds its support to our racing program helps us reach our goals. For my part, I will certainly do everything I can to get the best results on the track and represent my partners in the most effective ways possible.”

The company has not announced any other events as Lëssard’s primary sponsor at this time.

Lëssard finished 20th and 30th at Daytona International Speedway and Las Vegas Motor Speedway, respectively, to open the 2020 season. Racing part time in 2019, the driver scored two top-10 finishes in five starts.
