1March 28th, 2015 - Jake Griffin made his NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) debut on Saturday afternoon at Martinsville Speedway (Martinsville, Virginia). It would be a great day of learning and expansion for the 16-year-old pilot.

Via qualifications Jake earned the 24th starting spot on the grid for the Kroger 250 at the 1/2 mile oval. Early in the race Griffin spent laps becoming more familiar with the track and his Mittler Brothers #63 PADD Chevrolet Silverado. He would keep his nose clear until a mid-race skirmish with another competitor. Griffin received minimal damage in the incident and was able to rejoin the tail of the field. He gained a few spots in the running order before transmission issues eventually forced Jake to retire to a 26th place finish.

Overall it was a great outing for the talented young driver, and he looks forward to more starts with the NCWTS this season. Jake would also like to thank all of his fans and sponsors for their great support.

Full results from the event are available at www.NASCAR.com.

I can’t thank MB Motorsports enough for giving me this opportunity.” He concluded by noting, “I plan to do everything within my ability to capitalize on the opportunity.”

The #63 Chevrolet Silverado will also carry sponsorship from People Against Distracted Driving and Johnson Logistics.

“I’m so very grateful to have great sponsors like PADD and Johnson Logistics stepping up to support me in my racing endeavors,” noted Griffin.
