Lester grew up in Horseheads, a town under 10 miles north of Elmira, New York. Without many local races going on within his area, he ventured farther around the state at a young age in order to pursue his dream of becoming a racing driver. Accruing success through go-karts and late models throughout the early 2010's, he aimed for STARS (no pun intended) around 2020, in his words, "if [he] was lucky enough". He got an open wheel test at age 18 in early 2016 from Caluma Autosport, a single car open wheel team, and appeared to impress in it, cementing himself as one of the top American prospective drivers of the decade. Following a part-time schedule in the Cargill Can-Am Open Wheel Series with Caluma with a best finish of 6th in 9 starts, he was contacted by the prestigious ATK Motorsports to drive their #21 entry full-time for the 2017 STARS Lowe's International Series. Lester, incredibly humbled by the offer, accepted it. He finished second more times than any other driver on the circuit and was left out of ATK following the season, signing to drive the #20 Team Kwik Fit Ford for his sophomore campaign.
