Lupton at Richmond:
Dylan will be making his third career NASCAR XFINITY Series start at Richmond Raceway to go along with one previous start in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series. He finished 12th in the event earlier this season at the Virginia track.
The start will mark Lupton’s 22nd career start in the NASCAR XFINITY Series.
Dylan’s Thoughts on Richmond:
“I am excited to head back to Richmond Raceway this weekend, where I recorded my best finish of the season. The Richmond night race is one of my favorite races of the year on the schedule. The different lane options you can run, the tire wear and the door to door battles there makes it a blast. ”
“The last few weeks have shown that we have speed, however the finishes haven’t been there due to one problem or another. Therefore, I am looking forward to heading back to Richmond to try and top our finish there in the spring and get us back on track. The crew guys have been working extremely hard everyday through this long stretch of race weekends and I can not thank them enough for that.”
