“I met the team and I’m pretty excited to contest my first race with Kyle Busch Motorsports,” said Lessard. “I’m looking forward to a great season. I can’t wait! It’s going to be a new experience for me, and I’ll work with some new people. It’s going to be great.”

The inaugural race of the season will be held at Watermelon Capital Speedway of Crisp Motorsports Park in Cordele, Georgia. It’s a a 3/8 mile, medium banked, high speed D, asphalt track that boasts the fastest speeds in South Georgia.
