Raphael Lessard will compete for GMS Racing in 12 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series races in 2021, with the possibility of more, the team announced Nov. 25.
The news comes after Kyle Busch Motorsports signed John Hunter Nemechek to pilot the No. 4 truck.
Lessard took that truck to victory lane at Talladega Superspeedway last season. In total, he earned four top fives and seven top 10s in 2020.
“Finding myself with the best team of the 2020 season is unbelievable,” Lessard said in a release. “They won the championship! I can’t wait to show what we can do aboard such great machines. The team knows how to bring potential winners at every race, a key to a great season. Our team will be great, and I can’t wait to be back on track.”
Lessard is working to obtain funding needed to run all 22 races next year.
“We are very excited to have Raphael join GMS Racing for part of the 2021 season,” Mike Beam, president of GMS Racing, said. “I believe Raphael will be a great addition to our GMS stable and I look forward to seeing him wheel one of our Chevrolets.”
