On the heels of his second top-15 finish of the season aboard the No. 24 Nut Up Industries Toyota for JGL Racing at Iowa Speedway this past weekend, NASCAR Next alumnus Dylan Lupton (@luptondylan) announced live on SiriusXM Speedway with host Dave Moody on SiriusXM NASCAR Radio this afternoon that Nut Up has added a minimum of five additional races to his current NASCAR XFINITY Series schedule.
Launching their first foray into NASCAR at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway in April, the Escalon, Calif. based company quickly reaped the benefits of exposure and interaction with their products making their decision to increase Lupton's schedule an easy one.
"I'm so grateful to Nut Up and JGL Racing for the opportunity to add more NASCAR XFINITY Series races for me this season," said Lupton, a native of Wilton, Calif. "This partnership has been a blast. We've had a lot of fun with fans at the track as well some good results on track.
"We have a lot planned between now and November and I look forward to getting back aboard the No. 24 Nut Up Toyota in a few weeks."
In addition to already confirmed races with JGL Racing at Watkins Glen (N.Y.) International, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Road America in August, Lupton will compete at New Hampshire Motor Speedway (July 15), Iowa Speedway (July 29), Richmond International Raceway (Sept. 8), Kansas Speedway (Oct. 21) and Texas Motor Speedway (Nov. 4).
"We have really enjoyed the addition of Dylan and the Nut Up Industries folks to our team," added James Whitener, owner of JGL Racing. "Dylan continues to improve the more he works with the team and our results will only continue to improve the more races we do together. It has been fun to work with Nut Up and see how they have become engaged in the sport. We look forward to some great success for all of us."
