Dylan Lupton will, once again, climb behind the wheel of a BK Racing NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Toyota for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond (Va.) International Raceway. He’ll make his second-career Sprint Cup start from behind the wheel of the No. 83 Toyota.
Lupton’s No. 83 will be a third entry in the race for BK Racing, which also fields cars for drivers Matt DiBenedetto and David Ragan. DiBenedetto will be in the No. 93 and Ragan the No. 23 at Richmond. DiBenedetto is normally in the No. 83 but has been moved over to the No. 93 for the RIR race. As a result, he is not guaranteed a starting spot for Saturday night’s race. Forty-one cars are on the entry list, one more than a full field of 40. Lupton, meanwhile, is locked-in.
Lupton also drove for BK Racing in the road course race at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway in June. The Richmond race will be Lupton’s first Sprint Cup event on an oval.
