October 26th, 2013 - 14-year-old Jake Griffin entered his second-career event with the ARCA/CRA Super Series over the weekend with a trip to the recently reopened Memphis International Raceway (Millington, Tennessee), and he came away with an impressive 8th place finish in his #08 Jake Griffin Racing/P.A.D.D./McPike's Pawn Shop entry to show for his efforts.

In qualifications Jake earned the 13th starting spot in the field for the 150 lap finale at the 3/4 mile oval.  He quickly found his way into the top ten early in the event, and would sit in the 9th position at the break for the halfway point on lap 75.   As the race resumed Griffin continued to run in the top ten and would go on to advance to a strong 8th place finish at the checkered flag.

"We had a great car all weekend, and to get a top ten finish against a field of competitors as strong as this is really exciting," said Griffin.  "I can't thank my team, my sponsors, and all of my fans enough for all of their support."

Jake was also joined in action over the weekend by 16-year-old, Bobby Pierce from Oakwood, Illinois, who was making his pavement debut with the JEGS/CRA All-Star tour in an #08 JGR entry.  Pierce was also impressive throughout the weekend with a qualifying effort that positioned him starting 9th on the grid for the 125 lap finale.  During the course of the event Pierce raced as high as the top five before tire issues late in the race caused him to lose valuable laps on pit road.  Despite losing the laps Pierce turned some of the fastest laps of the race and crossed the finish line in 12th.

This weekend, November 2nd-3rd, Jake will make his debut at the Fairgrounds Speedway in (Nashville, Tennessee) in the 29th running of the All American 400, where he will compete in the Pro Late Model division.  The historic event draws many of the nation's top drivers to the 5/8 mile oval each year, and to be able to compete in the program is extremely exciting for Jake and Jake Griffin Racing.  For more information on the event please visit www.FairgroundsSpeedwayNashville.com.

Jake Griffin also recently received more exciting news as he received confirmation that his recent wins with the UMP sanction and NASCAR sanction made him the youngest driver to score victories with either governing body.

October 12th, 2013 - After a week away from the track Jake Griffin resumed his 2013 season with a trip to Winchester Speedway (Winchester, Indiana) with the Winchester 100 presented by JEGS.com, which was sanctioned by the JEGS/CRA All-Stars.

Twenty-seven entries were on hand for the event, and via qualifying Jake locked into the 14th starting spot for the 75 lap finale at the speed plant. Unfortunately luck would not be on his side in the finale as vibrations under the hood of his entry forced him to retire on lap 18 to a disappointing 23rd place finish.
