Lupton on Homestead-Miami: “It’s been a couple years since I’ve been to

Homestead-Miami Speedway but I’m looking forward to getting there this weekend in our No. 5 Shreddy Lyfe Clothing Toyota Tundra.

“We didn’t have the finish we were hoping for last weekend at ISM Raceway, but Homestead is an opportunity to bounce back and put ourselves in a contention for a top-five – if not maybe a win in the last race of the 2019 NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series season.”

Lupton on his season at DGR-Crosley: “I can’t thank everyone at DGR-Crosley enough for the opportunity to be a part of their organization this season. We’ve had some good finishes together that made some noise and given us the motivation to go out there with each and every race to strive and be a better team.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with Blake (Bainbridge, crew chief). His belief in me as a race car driver has meant a lot to me and we’re going to Homestead to try and get ourselves a win. I’m also glad we’ve been able to bring Shreddy Lyfe Clothing onboard for the final two races and hope we can give them a finish they are proud of on Friday night.”
