Racing careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Lupton began racing in 2010 in the Langers Juice S-2 Sportsman Series, which was a championship with fourteen races and those were all at Irwindale Event Center, then known as Toyota Speedway. Lupton managed to win three races and became champion with High Point Racing just two points in front of teammate Roman Lagudi. In 2011 he got two partial rides in the K&N Pro Series West. He drove one race for team owner Greg Rayl and two races for team owner BIll McAnally, including races at All American Speedway and the new Phoenix International Raceway. His best result of the season was a 12th place at Montana Raceway Park. In 2013 and 2014 he got a full ride at Sunrise Ford Racing in the K&N Pro Series West and became runner-up in 2014 seventeen points behind two-time champion Greg Pursley. He won twice, in 2013 at Evergreen Speedway and in 2014 at Kern County Raceway Park. In 2015 he drove one K&N Pro Series East race at Watkins Glen – he managed to take 4th place[2] – to gain road course experience, because he would drive for Athenian Motorsports in the Nationwide Children's Hospital 200 at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course.[3]

On February 16, 2015, it was announced that Lupton had been signed by Athenian Motorsports to compete part-time in the 2015 NASCAR Xfinity Series. Lupton was hired to run a minimum of seven races in the No. 25 starting at Phoenix International Raceway, with continued sponsorship from Zaxby's.[4] After finishing twice in the top 20 after driving five races for Athenian Motorsports, he finished 9th at Mid-Ohio.[5] Lupton started another road course race at Road America, finishing 13th.

Lupton started the 2016 Xfinity season without a ride, however on March 1, 2016, it was announced that Lupton signed a deal to drive the No. 93 Chevy for RSS Racing for 3 races, starting at Las Vegas.[6] However, the team withdrew from the Vegas race,[7] delaying his debut until the following race at Phoenix, and was replaced by Josh Reaume at Las Vegas.

In 2016, Lupton joined BK Racing to attempt his Sprint Cup Series debut at the Toyota/Save Mart 350. Lupton would finish 35th in the race.[8] He returned to the team at Richmond's Federated Auto Parts 400 in the No. 83. He would be involved in a big wreck, with his car ending up on top of Ryan Newman's car, but he would stay in the race and finish 25th. [9] Lupton made his Truck Series debut at Talladega, driving the No. 02 Chevrolet for Young's Motorsports, he finished 12th. Lupton then made his second Truck Series race at Phoenix, substituting John Wes Townley, earning a 19th place finish. A week later, Lupton joined Go Fas Racing in a one race deal at Homestead, finishing 39th. Dylan ran part time in the Xfinty series in 2017 with a limited schedule in No. 24 for JGL Racing. Lupton announced in January 2018 that he and JGL were planning to run 21 races throughout the upcoming Xfinity season (with hoping to run the full schedule if they can pull off more sponsorship). Lupton had a few top 25s but disappointed for the most part in the other races. He failed to finish Daytona, Las Vegas, Fontana, Bristol, Talladega, and Charlotte. Dylan wasn’t originally supposed to race in the Bristol race, but with the struggles of Tony Mrakovich in practice, JGL Racing choose Lupton to replace him.

Personal lifeEdit

Lupton graduated from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2016 with a degree in finance.[8]
