Dylan has been able to drive in several different classes and each has allowed him to improve his racing skills. 2011 was Dylan's rookie season in his Pro Truck where he won the 2011 Pro Truck Rookie Championship with 2 race wins and the Rookie Triple Crown. In 2012, he ran the Florida United Pro Truck Series, finishing 7th in his first full season. He was 3rd in the 2013 Florida United Promoters Series where he captured 4 wins. Dylan captured the Pole from NASCAR driver, Joey Coulter and finished 2nd in the 2013, 8th Annual Joey Coulter Charity Race. Dylan finished 3rd in the 2014 Joey Coulter Florida Pro Truck Series with 14 top 5 finishes.
