2020 Fantasy Outlook
The Canadian is transitioning from part-time to full-time racing in the truck series this season. Lessard takes over the No. 4 Toyota Tundra that Todd Gilliland piloted last season. The 18-year-old prospect made five starts last season between a couple different teams, but mainly for Kyle Busch Motorsports. Lessard earned a pair of Top 10's in those five events and registered a pedestrian 11.2 average finish. He also impressed with three Top-10 finishes in three starts in the ARCA Series last year. Lessard is a young, raw talent, and he lacks a lot of seat time that other young drivers bring to this division of NASCAR. He'll have top flight equipment and support, and that's half the battle to a successful rookie campaign.
