MOORESVILLE, N.C. – Canac, a Quebec-based group specializing in the distribution and retail sale of building products and hardware, will sponsor Raphael Lessard and Kyle Busch Motorsports in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series.
Canac will make its debut on the No. 4 Toyota Tundra driven by Lessard at Homestead-Miami Speedway on March 20.
The family business has been in existence for 145 years and is growing in strength with 30 branches in the province of Quebec.
“Raphael is a young man from our region, and it is important for Canac to encourage the next generation of major sports in Quebec,” said Jean Laberge, president of Canac. “We have always been racing fans and when we saw Raphael’s performance, it confirmed that he has an incredible talent and that it is worth supporting him in his development as a race car driver.
“My father was a great fan of motor racing. Over the years, the Laberge family has partnered with legendary Quebec drivers such as Marcel Corriveau, Denis Giroux who both raced in Quebec and in the United States, as did the ever-popular Beauceron Langis Caron over his 50-year career,” Laberge continued. “For the past few years, we have also been supporting Mikael Grenier. Raphael Lessard is making his mark at a racing level that very few Quebec racers reach. As part of the partnership supporting his development, we are proud at Canac to contribute to making his dream come true.”
