Tyler Dippel from Wallkill, NY started his racing career on the dirt tracks in the Northeast at the age of 7. Tyler has always been impressive on dirt and won his first national championship at the age of 10. Since then, Tyler has won numerous championships and awards racing on dirt and captured his first Northeast Dirt Big Block Modified win at the age of 14, the youngest driver to ever achieve such a feat.
Tyler always had the urge to try his hand on asphalt. At the same time he started winning championships on dirt, he started racing Legends cars on asphalt and competing in the South. He advanced quickly into the Super Late Model ranks, running the PASS (Pro All Star Series) National and the PASS Southern Series. In his Rookie year, he led the National Series points until the last race when a transmission failure dashed his hopes of winning the championship. He finished runner-up in the National Series and scored a top –five points finish in the Southern Series.
In 2015, Dippel was called upon to race in the two dirt races in the ARCA Racing Series. Running as high as second in both events, he was involved in a late-race incident, which cost him several positions. Based on his performance in his ARCA debut, he was then asked to race at the Salem (Ind) Speedway. In his first ARCA race on asphalt, the 15-year-old driver impressed, scoring a fourth-place finish and earning Rookie of the Race honors.
2016 brought Dippel closer to that goal. This past season, he drove for HScott Motorsports with Justin Marks in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East. In only his second series start, Dippel picked up his first career win at Mobile (Ala.) International Speedway on March 23 leading 124 of 154 laps.
Additionally, he scored seven more top-10 finishes throughout the year, including back-to-back seventh place finishes in the final two races of the year to secure third place in the championship standings in his rookie season.
