Dylan Lupton's Frustrating Day Nets 25th Place Finish in Iowa

NEWTON, IOWA (July 31, 2017) – Dylan Lupton has made his career debut at various tracks this season and for obvious reasons he looked forward to returning to Iowa Speedway for the second time of the 2017 campaign. Unfortunately, the Wilton, California native had a frustrating day behind the wheel of his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota on his way to a disappointing 25th place finish in the running of the US Cellular 250.

“This was a very frustrating weekend,” said Lupton. “We just didn’t have speed in our No. 24 Nut Up Toyota but it wasn’t from lack of effort as the guys on this JGL Racing team worked their tails off. I just battled being a little too loose on entry as we just went into a four-wheel slide into the corner. We got it a little better there late in the race but we had lost so much that we couldn’t recover from it.”

Dylan would start the 250-lap event from the 32nd position as a result of his qualifying effort earlier in the day. With his work cut out for him, Lupton would battle the loose on entry condition for the 60 laps of the first stage. He would find himself losing a lap to the leaders and in the 27th position at the completion of the stage.

The second stage would find Dylan continue to battle the handling on his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota and fight for valuable track position. As he would lose another lap to the leaders, Lupton would remain in the 27th position as the second stage came to a completion.

The second half of the race would find the JGL Racing crew make some adjustments to the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota which would improve the handling. Lupton would be forced to pit under green flag conditions as a result of taking the wave around at the end of the second stage – thus losing additional laps to the field. Dylan would fight for a few valuable spots in the late stages of the event and would take the checkered flag in the 25th spot.

“Just not the result we were looking for this weekend,” added Dylan. “I really appreciate all of the hard work from the guys on this JGL Racing team and the great support from Nut Up Industries. It is now time to turn our attention to some road course racing.”

Lupton and the JGL Racing team will next head to Watkins Glen International for the running of the Zippo 200. The 20th race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season will be Saturday August 5th and can be seen LIVE on NBC Sports Network at 2:00 pm ET. It can also be heard on Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Channel 90.

Lupton at New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
Dylan will be making his second career XFINITY Series start at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. His previous start at the one-mile track netted a 24th place finish during the 2015 season.

The start will mark Lupton’s 16th career start in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.

Dylan’s Thoughts on New Hampshire Motor Speedway:
“I had a great two weekends off with my family and we were able to spend time in Huntington Beach for the 4th of July. However, I am really chomping at the bit to get back in the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota – so I’m excited to race New Hampshire Motor Speedway this weekend. The flat track makes it unique and a change of pace on the NASCAR circuit. Being able to rotate the centers with speed and applying the throttle is key.”

“I’m looking forward to working with the JGL crew this weekend again and sporting the Nut Up Industries colors on the car once again. I am also excited to visit the Boys and Girls Club of Central New Hampshire on Thursday to speak to the kids about racing, STEM education, and pursuing higher education.”
