NASCAR Pinty’s Series alumni Raphael Lessard scored his first NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series victory today at Talladega.
The 19-year-old from St.-Joseph de Beauce, Quebec survived a chaotic Chevy Silverado 250 to claim his first win racing for Kyle Busch Motorsports.

During the final lap, a wreck on the backstretch caused a caution ending the race. The No. 4 Canac Toyota was out front at the time of caution, giving Lessard the win.
