After a hiatus of six weeks since his first race of the season, Raphaël Lessard will once again get behind the wheel of his #99 Toyota Camry on Sunday, March 19, for the 41st edition of the Rattler 250, a Southern Super Series (SSS) race taking place in Alabama.

This race will be the first of five races to take place in the next 6 weeks for the St-Joseph-de-Beauce native. During this busy period he will challenge the best Super Late Model drivers of three different series: SSS (2), CARS, and PASS, to which he will add his first ever ARCA race.

The South Alabama Speedway is 4/10th (0.63 km) of a half-mile oval track with 13-degree banking in the corners and five degrees in the straightaways.

The 250-lap race and the qualifications will be broadcast live on Speed51.com . You can also keep an eye on Raphaël's on-track performance — in real time — on Race-Monitor.com.
