Dylan Lupton Relegated to 20th Place Finish in Watkins Glen

WATKINS GLEN, NEW YORK (August 7, 2017) – Dylan Lupton is a fan of turning right and left and he entered the first road course event of the season at Watkins Glen International with much optimism. The Wilton, California native would show good speed in his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota before pit strategy relegated him to a 20th place finish in the running of the Zippo 200.

“We were competitive from the drop of the green flag and were able to pick up spots on the track,” said Lupton. “Unfortunately, our pit strategy didn’t fall in our favor and we lost a lap to the leaders. We were easily a top 15 car. I am looking forward to the next two road courses, where we can capitalize on a good day and get us a good finish.”

Dylan would start the 82-lap event from the 23rd position as a result of his qualifying effort earlier in the day. At the drop of the green flag, Lupton would show good speed in his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota and work his way forward in the field. With varying pit strategies being implemented at the end of the first stage, Dylan would be sitting in the 14th spot at the end of the stage.

A trip down pit road before the second stage would see Dylan lose some track position and restart in the 23rd position. Once again, the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota would show its speed and move up through the field and sit just outside the top-10 at the end of the second stage.

With some aggressive pit strategy being implement, Dylan would stay out on the track after the second stage with sights set on making just one more stop. The strategy ultimately didn’t play out in Lupton’s favor as he was forced to pit under green on lap 52. The later stages of the Zippo 200 would see Dylan fight for every spot in the track and come home with the top-20 finish when the checkered flag flew.

“We had a fast No. 24 Nut Up Toyota today and that felt good,” 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. We will set our sights next on Mid-Ohio.”

Lupton and the JGL Racing team will next head to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the running of the Mid-Ohio 200. The 21st race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season will be Saturday August 12th and can be seen LIVE on NBC Sports Network at 3:30 pm ET. It can also be heard on Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Channel 90.

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.

Dylan Lupton Guts Out 15th Place Finish in Iowa

NEWTON, IOWA (June 26, 2017) – After three straight weeks of going to race tracks for the first time, Dylan Lupton finally returned to a track that he had previously raced on. A wild race featuring varying strategies would see the Wilton, California native steer his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota to a solid 15th-place finish in the running of the American Ethanol E15 250 at Iowa Speedway on Saturday night.

“We fought through another weekend filled with adversity,” said Lupton. “We blew a motor early in the second practice which put us behind the 8 ball. We struggled with the handling of our No. 24 Nut Up Toyota as we were really loose in and tight off the corner. Clinton (Cram, crew chief) and the rest of the No. 24 JGL crew never gave up and with great pit strategy, we were in contention for a good finish. Shoot, if it we didn’t have that caution with about 30 laps to go, we would have had a chance to win the race. I wish we could have gotten a few more laps there at the end so that we could get a top-10 finish.

Dylan would start the 250-lap event from the 28th position as a result of his qualifying effort. In the early stages of the race Dylan would report that his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota was just too loose as it was during his qualifying runs earlier in the day. An early trip down pit road in the middle portion of the first stage allowed for the JGL Racing crew to make some adjustments. Back to racing, the early adjustments did not seem to help Dylan and he would ultimately go down a lap to the leaders just as the first stage concluded.

An early caution in the second stage allowed for Lupton to receive the Lucky Dog award and return back to the lead lap. With Dylan reporting that his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota was getting a little better he would manage through the final laps of the second stage and sit in the 23rd spot at its conclusion.

The second half of the race would see some additional adjustments bring the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota to life. Along with some great pit strategy by Clinton Cram (crew chief), Lupton would be in a position to go the distance on fuel with the majority of the field still requiring one more stop. A long green flag run played right into this strategy before a late caution came out with 30 laps remaining. The No. 24 Nut Up Toyota would restart as the leader but would fall back behind cars who had pitted for tires. With another late caution, Lupton would give up track position to come down pit road to put on scuff tires but with less laps that what he currently had on his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota. The closing laps saw Dylan pick up valuable positions and come home with an exciting 15th place finish when the checkered flag flew.

“I am happy with our result considering the struggles we had to fight through,” added Dylan. “A big thanks to Nut Up Industries for all the support, and the JGL crew for all their hard work.”

JGL Racing team will next head to Daytona International Speedway for the running of the Coca-Cola Firecracker 250. The 15th race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season will be Friday June 30th and can be seen LIVE on NBCSN at 7:30 pm ET. It can also be heard on Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Channel 90.

Dylan Lupton Gains Valuable Experience Despite Disappointing Result in Michigan

BROOKLYN, MI. (June 19, 2017) – For the third consecutive week, Dylan Lupton ventured to a race track that he had never seen before. While the Wilton, California native gained valuable experience in his first visit to Michigan International Speedway, he was none too happy as he brought home his No. 24 Nut Up Toyota to a disappointing 24th place finish in the running of the Irish Hills 250.

“Today was a frustrating finish to the race that doesn’t paint the whole picture,” said Lupton. “We fought through some adversity all day but the guys on this JGL Racing team never gave up. On that last restart I just got wrecking loose for some reason and for the second week in a row freight trained coming to the white flag. I hate it for everyone on this JGL Racing team and the Nut Up folks. The good news is we get to come back next week in Iowa – a track that I have raced on a few times already in my career.”

Dylan would start the 250-mile event from the 30th position as a result of his qualifying effort earlier Saturday morning. Lupton would adapt to the new track and slowly move forward in the field. The No. 24 Nut Up Toyota would be in the 25th
position at the end of the first stage.

The second stage would begin with the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota receiving rear end damage after being hit from behind as everyone tried to avoid an accident on the back stretch. While the damage was repaired by the JGL Racing crew, Dylan would report he was loose when he was racing inside of another car. The second stage would end under caution with Lupton breaking into the top-20.

The second half of the 125-lap event would see the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota remain around the top-20 as Dylan continued with the learning process. Despite dealing with a tight condition in the center of the corner and through exit, Lupton would sit inside the top-20 leading into a green-white-checkered finish. A wild restart and two lap shootout would result in the loss of valuable spots to the field and the disappointing 24th place finish.

“For the second week in a row I have had a disappointing finish to a race,” added Dylan. “We definitely had speed in the car and it is just a matter of time that we get the finishes we deserve.”

Lupton and his JGL Racing team will next head to Iowa Speedway for the running of the American Ethanol E15 250. The 14th race of the NASCAR XFINITY Series season will be Saturday June 24th and can be seen LIVE on FOX Sports1 at 8:30 pm ET. It can also be heard on Motor Racing Network (MRN) and SiriusXM Channel 90.
