We may have just turned the calendar page over to a new year, but the announcements have already began.

JGL Racing confirmed on Wednesday that Dylan Lupton will be back behind the wheel of the No. 28 Ford Mustang this season for at least 21 events.

“I’m very excited to return to JGL Racing in 2018,” stated Lupton. “We continued to improve throughout the 2017 season and I was able to gain valuable experience that will help tremendously in the new season. With the switch to Ford over the off-season and our new alliance with Roush Fenway Racing, I am confident that we will be competitive right out of the gate. I would like to thank James Whitener and the whole JGL Racing organization for this opportunity.”

The announcement is an expansion compared to 2017, following 14 races with JGL Racing, with a career-best 12th at Richmond Raceway in April. The Californian has made 24 starts in the XFINITY Series to date.

“I am extremely happy we were able to put something together and have Dylan back with us for the 2018 season,” said James Whitener, owner of JGL Racing. “Dylan gained valuable experience in the 2017 season and went to many tracks for the first time, which will all help him in 2018. Also, Dylan became a great fit with our team and really became a part of our family. We look forward to his continued growth and think he has some exciting times ahead of him in the No. 28 Ford.”

Lupton will begin the season in the No. 24 at Daytona International Speedway in the PowerShares QQQ 300, along with the following four events. JGL Racing stated sponsor and crew chief announcements will be forth coming in the “near future.”
