• This was Dylan Lupton’s second NASCAR Xfinity Series start at the Monster Mile and best finish at the one-mile oval
• This was Lupton’s best qualifying effort in 34 Xfinity Series races
• The No. 28’s best position of the event was 11th (end of Stage 2)
• Lupton was running 18th when the No. 60 spun in front of him and collected him, damaging his Ford Mustang and forcing him to go a lap down while making repairs on pit road
“Today was really frustrating; I’m taking suggestions on how to change my luck. The guys worked really hard this weekend and we made a lot of wholesale changes after practice yesterday. We had a solid run going, but we got into the No. 60 when he spun. I was committed to the bottom and couldn’t get slowed up in time. I tried getting on the brakes and turning right, but I just couldn’t and we got collected. I’m so proud of my JGL Racing crew for their hard work throughout the weekend. We will keep digging.”
