December 29th, 2015 - The 2015 season was a year of transition for Jake. After beginning the year by competing in the UMP DIRTCar Nationals at Volusia Speedway Park (Barberville, Florida) in his Modified, Griffin enjoyed a very memorable moment on March 28th. On that date he entered the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series event of his young career. The then 16-year-old competed in the Kroger 250 at Martinsville Speedway (Martinsville, Virginia), where he turned several solid laps for the legendary Mittler Brothers team. He ran in the top 20 most of the day before late-race mechanical issues resulted in him finishing in the 26th position. Griffin was the youngest driver to compete in the event. The qualifying effort marked the best for the Mittler Brothers team to that point in the season. In NCWTS action he also qualified 14th at Iowa Speedway (Newton, Iowa), which at the time marked the Mittler Brothers team best qualifying effort since the series was created in 1995. It was truly a year of learning and development for the talented racer.

With another successful season in the rearview mirror the young driver now looks intently to 2016 with bright eyes. He will drive for Don Atkins in the NASCAR Whelen Late Model division. While he has to wait another year to be eligible for superspeedway events (must be 18-years-old), Griffin plans to enter several NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) events in 2016 as he progresses through the ranks. When not competing on pavement, Griffin again plans to return to his roots to burn up tracks throughout the Midwest in both the Dirt Modified and Dirt Midget ranks.
