DGR-Crosley announced on Monday Afternoon that Dylan Lupton would return to the team for a multi-race stint in the NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series this season, beginning at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The Wilton, California-native will contest at least three events for the team, piloting the No. 17 Ford F-150 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway and Phoenix Raceway.

Marcus Richmond – a 10-time NASCAR Truck Series winning crew chief — will lead Lupton’s three-race effort, in the same truck that David Ragan drove at Darlington Raceway and Richmond Raceway.

Additionally, Lupton will make his return to the ARCA Menards Series competing in the series’ finale at Kansas Speedway on October 16th.

“I am excited to return to DGR-Crosley for a few races this season,” said Lupton. “We had success together last season and I’m confident that we can build on that starting at Las Vegas and hopefully contend for wins throughout my schedule.”

DGR-Crosley co-owner, David Gilliland, is looking forward to Lupton’s return.

“We are happy to have Dylan back with us at DGR-Crosley for a few NASCAR Gander RV & Outdoors Truck Series races this year,” offered Gilliland. “We had some good races with him last year, especially at the mile-and-a-half tracks, so we’re looking forward to seeing what he can do with Marcus (Richmond, crew chief). I think they will be a solid combination and have great potential.”

As a NASCAR Next alumnus, Lupton has experience in all three of NASCAR’s National Series, making four NASCAR Cup Series starts, 35 NASCAR Xfinity Series starts and eight prior starts in the NASCAR Truck Series.

A two-time winner in the ARCA Menards Series West division, Lupton had a six-race Truck Series opportunity with DGR-Crosley last year and earned one top-five and three top-10 finishes, including a career-best fifth at Kentucky Speedway and additional top-10 efforts at Chicagoland (Ill.) Speedway and Las Vegas.
His sixth race of the season at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway last November was cut short after inclement weather canceled qualifying and left Lupton on the sidelines despite practicing inside the top five.
“I feel like we still have some unfinished business from Homestead last year,” added Lupton. “DGR-Crosley brought me a fast truck, but unfortunately rain kept us from making the race. Hopefully, we can go to Las Vegas and finish what we started and have a successful race.”
While juggling an aggressive racing schedule, Lupton, 26, also graduated in 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in Business Finance from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.
A partnership announcement for Lupton at Las Vegas is forthcoming.
