1July 22nd, 2015 - Jake Griffin entered the 1-800-Car-Cash Mud Summer Classic with the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCTWS) on Wednesday evening at the famed Eldora Speedway (Rossburg, Ohio). The event marked his first start with the series on dirt.

During practice sessions early in the day the 16-year-old recorded some of the fastest laps in the field in the #03 Outdoor Power Inc. Chevrolet Silverado. Unfortunately the team would battle tire issues in qualifying and heat race action. As a result he was forced to start 9th on the grid for the last chance qualifier. He would surge through the field to a 4th place finish, but with only the top two finishers advancing to the finale, Jake’s outing came to an early end.

“We had a much better truck than what we were able to show early in the night due to tire problems, but that’s just how it goes sometime,” said Griffin. “I want to thank all of my supporters and sponsors for this opportunity. This deal came together at the very last minute, and we gave it our best shot. We’ll just turn our focus to our next opportunity.”
