As winner of the Racecar Series 2010 - the 'made in France' NASCAR - Lucas Lasserre received an exceptional reward: an invitation to fly to California for a week, not only to visit Hollywood, but above all to participate in one of the races of this so popular American discipline!
Motul, partner of the French series, was also alongside the Frenchy for the NASCAR Allstar Showdown 2011 that took place on Saturday at the Toyota Speedway at Irwindale, before a crowd of short track specialists.
For a first race on an oval, Chevrolet rider no. 81 was quite simply amazing!
After a fine qualification for the final at which he left 39th, Lucas showed consummate skill: helped by a very good radio spotter, his strategy was brilliant. With impressive regularity and unique trajectories, he made many aggressive but always acceptable passes.
In the top 10 five laps from the chequered flag, the Frenchy finally finished 15th after a collision.
US riders now know what this Racecar Series rider has under his foot!
