Racing career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Dippel raced big-block modifieds in New York at tracks like Orange County Fair Speedway, sometimes traveling to the southeastern United States.[1]

Developmental series[edit]

Dippel raced three races with ARCA Racing Series team Win-Tron Racing in 2017, at Toledo Speedway and the series' two dirt track races.[2][3] He failed to finish two but turned in a third-place showing at Illinois State Fairgrounds Racetrack.[4] In 2018, Dippel signed with Chad Bryant Racing and finished sixth with the team in his first race at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway.[5]

In early February 2018, Dippel and RJR confirmed a third season together in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East.[6] Dippel left the team after one race, citing a lack of performance, and joined MDM Motorsports for the second race on the schedule.[7] After that, Dippel joined DGR-Crosley for the remainder of the 2018 season.[8] He won his first race with the team, at Langley Speedway, after winning the pole. He and teammate Tyler Ankrum used tire strategy to their advantage, conserving them at the start to have the most speed at the end.[9] Before the season finale, it was announced that after deliberation within the team following the previous race, Dippel and the team would move in different directions.[10] The move came after Ankrum had voiced displeasure with Dippel's driving after the end of the New Hampshire race.[11] Team owner David Gilliland stated: "After much internal discussion following the race at New Hampshire, we agreed parting ways was the right decision for all parties involved. Tyler has been an integral part of our program this year and we thank him for his contribution to our growth and success. We wish him and his family nothing but the best going forward."[11]

Gander Outdoors Truck Series[edit]

Parlaying off of his K&N efforts, Dippel made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series debut at Eldora Speedway in 2018 with DGR-Crosley, driving the organization's No. 17 entry.[12] On September 26, 2018, it was announced that he would join GMS Racing's No. 25 entry for the four remaining races of 2018.[13] His best result on the year came at the Eldora race, finishing thirteenth.[14]

For 2019, Dippel has been announced to take over the No. 02 truck at Young's Motorsports, replacing Austin Hill.
