Lupton to substitute for Townley at Phoenix

As John Wes Townley continues to recover from an injured left ankle, he has opted to sit out Friday night’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race at Phoenix International Raceway. Townley will turn to west coast driver Dylan Lupton to pilot his No. 05 Chevrolet in the desert this weekend.

“My ankle is still pretty sore but I’m hoping I’ll be ready to race next week at Homestead,” Townley said. “Dylan competed in some XFINITY Series races for Athenian Motorsports last year and did a solid job. He’s got tons of experience at Phoenix, so I’m very confident he’ll give our Chevrolet a good run there Friday night.”

Lupton, whose hometown is Sacramento, Calif., finished 12th in his NCWTS debut last month at Talladega.

Friday night’s NCWTS Lucas Oil 150 at Phoenix will air live on Fox Sports 1 and MRN Radio at 10 p.m. eastern.
