SQR Development, a part-time NASCAR Xfinity Series team for 2022, has signed Raphael Lessard to drive its No. 87 Toyota in select races this season.
Lessard’s previous experience includes NASCAR Camping World Truck Series starts for DGR Racing, GMS Racing and Kyle Busch Motorsports. In 2020, he won the Truck race at Talladega Superspeedway piloting the No. 4 Toyota for KBM.
“As a team just getting going this year, having someone like Raphael Lessard drive some races for us is a pretty big deal,” said, JC Stout, team owner. “We are looking forward to working with him and helping us out with his prior experience. He’s been to Victory Lane and has the drive and passion we are needing.
“We purchased all of our chassis from Joe Gibbs Racing and are working on them in our shop in Mooresville. Like any team, we are looking for partnerships on our No. 87 Toyota in the 10 or so races we’re going to run this season.”
