Lessard quickly moved up to the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series in 2020, winning at Talladega that year with Kyle Busch Motorsports.

Lessard returned to the series in 2021, briefly subbing in for an injured Donald Theetge during the season opener at Sunset Speedway. The then 20-year-old, swept the double-header event.

For 2024, Lessard will join Kevin Lacroix and Mathieu Kingsbury's newly formed team (Innovation Auto Sport), for three events.
