Dylan Lupton will run Jeff Gordon throwback at Darlington Raceway
The rainbow #24 will return to the racetrack via Darlington’s throwback weekend.
Dylan Lupton will field the rainbow #24 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series event.
The JGL Racing Toyota will sport the paint scheme. Jeff Gordon ran the rainbow warrior paint scheme from 1992-2000 in the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series.
Dylan Luton released the photo with the statement, “NEWS: Honored to pay tribute to @JeffGordonWeb ‘Rainbow Warriors’ paint scheme at TooToughToTame w/ NutUpIndustries”
Gordon collected three championships (1995, 1997, 1998) and 52 wins with this look on his No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet. The illustrious scheme first hit the track for the 1992 season finale at Atlanta Motor Speedway in Gordon’s first Cup Series race, which also served as seven-time champion Richard Petty’s last.
The XFINITY Series will be in action on Saturday, Sept. 2 for the Sports Clips Haircuts VFW 200 (3:30 p.m. ET, NBCSN, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio, NBC Sports App). It will be Lupton’s first start at Darlington after he made his NASCAR debut in 2015.
