This was Dylan Lupton’s first start at Las Vegas Motor Speedway

“Today was a disappointing way to start off the West Coast swing. We were all right in practice and qualifying; we were struggling with handling over the bumps through Turn 1 and 2 and we were loose in Turns 3 and 4. We fired off pretty good in the beginning of the race and started making a few passes, but then our race was cut short. Coming off Turn 4, I came through the tri-oval and was turned while fighting for the same real estate as the No. 39 car. After that, we made hard contact with the inside wall and that sent us to the garage. I hate that our day ended the way it did, especially because we had a good racecar. We will work hard these next few days and get ready for Phoenix and California. I want to thank my guys for all their hard work and thinQ Technology Partners and Fatal Clothing for their support.”
