DGR-Crosley Racing has announced the addition of six races for 25-year-old-driver Dylan Lupton this morning. The former NASCAR Xfinity Series driver will compete in a No. 5 entry in a handful of events in 2019.
“I am excited to finally announce my 2019 plans and join DGR-Crosley in the NASCAR Gander Outdoor Truck Series,” said Lupton in a press release. “DGR-Crosley has proven to be a very competitive team in the series in a short amount of time, and I believe we will be contending for wins throughout my schedule.
“Even though I have experience in all of NASCAR’s top three series, I don’t have that many Gander Outdoor Truck Series starts. I’m eager to learn from people like David [Gilliland] to strengthen my racing resume and becoming an asset to the DGR-Crosley organization.”
Lupton will get his first shot with DGR-Crosley at Chicago on June 28th. He will finish his season running at Kentucky, Bristol, Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami.
“We were super excited when we got the call that Dylan wanted to do some races with us,” said DGR-Crosley team co-owner David Gilliland. “His experience across multiple levels of racing is going to be a huge asset as we go to some of these tracks through the summer and fall months. I know that Dylan has the talent to run up front and I’m looking forward to working with him. I feel confident that we will put together some strong finishes with him this season.”
Dylan Lupton has one top ten in 35 career NASCAR Xfinity Series races. He has just two career starts in the Truck Series. Lupton got started as a prospect in the K&N West Series, adding a win in both 2013 and 2014.
