  • This was Dylan Lupton’s second NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Texas Motor Speedway and best finish at the Fort Worth oval
  • Lupton’s best running position during the event was 10th (Lap 90)
  • Lupton’s biggest handling issue throughout the race was tightness in the center of the corner
  • The California native’s next race with JGL Racing is Talladega Superspeedway on April 28 (Tony Mrakovich will pilot the No. 28 at Bristol Motor Speedway and Richmond Raceway)


“After our struggles in the first five races of the season, I came into Texas Motor Speedway looking for a clean race and a solid finish. I would say we accomplished that today. Our Achilles heel throughout the race was that we were just too tight in the center of the corner and it hurt our speed on exit. We definitely made strides in the right direction throughout the weekend and I am looking forward to my next race with the JGL crew. I’d like to thank our partners for their continued support.”


Dylan Lupton Hoping to Wrangle Solid Finish in Lone Star State

  • Dylan Lupton has one previous NASCAR Xfinity Series start at Texas Motor Speedway (2017)
  • Running for JGL Racing, Lupton finished 21st in his sole start at the 1.5-mile oval
  • After five races in 2018, Lupton’s best finish came at Atlanta Motor Speedway, another mile-and-a-half track
  • JGL Racing has 15 previous starts at Texas Motor Speedway
  • During the two-week break, Lupton took a trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico


“After the first five races, a two-week break was much needed for us to rebuild and regroup. I raced Texas Motor Speedway with JGL Racing in November and we were able to build a solid foundation leading into this weekend. Texas is a fast track that I enjoy a lot; I just hope the groove widens out a little more this time so that we can run two wide. In the fall race, I found that if you were stuck on the outside through Turns 1 and 2, there was no grip. A big ‘thank you’ to thinQ Technology Partners and Fatal Clothing for their continued support.”

“The West Coast swing has been rough on our No. 28 thinQ Technology Partners team. After a qualifying crash, we were in a bind and had to hustle to prepare our backup car before the race. I’m really proud of our crew guys for getting the car finished in time. Our car was actually not bad, we were just a little loose. Unfortunately, we had a piece of a jack post shoot through our radiator, which drained the water and killed the motor. It’s unfortunate, but we won’t stop fighting and working hard. A big thanks to our partners, thinQ Technology Partners and Fatal Clothing for their support.”

“We’re looking to get our season back on track this weekend at ISM Raceway after a rough weekend that ended early in Vegas. This will be my ninth visit to ISM Raceway and third Xfinity race there, so I am excited to get to a track that I have experience at and where JGL Racing has shown strength in the last few years. ISM Raceway always produces fun racing, especially with the dogleg that you’re able to cut leading into Turn 3. I would like to thank thinQ Technology Partners and Fatal Clothing for their support this weekend.”

Crash Ends Lupton's Day Early in Las Vegas

  • Start: 22nd
  • Stage 1 End: Out
  • Stage 2 End: Out
  • Finish: 40th
  • Status: Accident
  • Laps Completed: 5/200
  • Driver Standings: 28th

This was Dylan Lupton’s first start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

“Today was a disappointing way to start off the West Coast swing. We were all right in practice and qualifying; we were struggling with handling over the bumps through Turn 1 and 2 and we were loose in Turns 3 and 4. We fired off pretty good in the beginning of the race and started making a few passes, but then our race was cut short. Coming off Turn 4, I came through the tri-oval and was turned while fighting for the same real estate as the No. 39 car. After that, we made hard contact with the inside wall and that sent us to the garage. I hate that our day ended the way it did, especially because we had a good racecar. We will work hard these next few days and get ready for Phoenix and California. I want to thank my guys for all their hard work and thinQ Technology Partners and Fatal Clothing for their support.”
