1April 28th, 2013 - The team was beyond excited to officially open the 2013 JEGS/CRA All Star opener over the weekend at Springport Motor Speedway (Springport, Michigan). The weekend began with practice on Saturday, and Jake was fast right off the trailer as he registered the third fastest time in the field. The team had high hopes and expectations for the event on Sunday, but Mother Nature had other ideas as saturating rains forced the cancellation of the event.

As a result Jake departed Michigan early on Sunday as they headed back home to race their #08 Bob Pierce Open Wheel Modified at Quincy Raceway (Quincy, Illinois) in a Weekly Racing Series Event. Eighteen entries were on hand for the event, and Griffin started his night by finishing third in his heat race to lock into the eleventh starting spot for the UMP Open Wheel Modified feature. During the course of the feature he passed six cars to finish in the fifth position behind race winner, Steven DeLonjay, Michael Long, Shawn Deering, and Robbie Reed.

1April 21st, 2013 - Jake entered a single event over the weekend as he competed at his home track Quincy Raceway (Quincy, Illinois) on Sunday evening in a Weekly Racing Series Event in the UMP Open Wheel Modified division.

Thirteen entries were on hand for the program, and unfortunately Griffin encountered problems in his heat race, which left him starting at the tail of the feature. Predominantly one-groove, track conditions greeted the competitors for the feature, and as a result Jake would only be able to advance two spots to an eleventh place finish.

April 14th, 2013 - After more than a month away from the track Jake Griffin returned to action over the weekend in his 1#08 Bob Pierce Open Wheel Modified in a pair of events in Missouri and Illinois.

The weekend opened on Saturday night at Federated Auto Parts Raceway at I-55 (Pevely, Missouri) as forty-two entries registered for battle in the $2,000-to-win event. Jake qualified ninth fastest in his group and went on to finish seventh in his heat race. With the top four finishers moving onto the feature he was relegated to a b-main. There was some miscommunication on which b-main he was supposed to run, and as a result he arrived late to staging and was forced to relinquish his fifth starting spot. After starting on the tail of the field Griffin failed to reach a transfer spot to the main event, which ended his night early. Full results from the event are available at www.I55Raceway.com.

1On Sunday evening the team entered the season opener at Quincy Raceway (Quincy, Illinois). Jake started the night by qualifying for the dash, where he finished fifth, and then he went on to race to a seventh place finish in the seventeen car field in the UMP Open Wheel Modified main event.
