Griffin Racing Team History
Emery Griffin was the first in line of Griffin Racing. He started out racing in 1954 under Emery’s Radiator Service.
Emery had a son Bruce Griffin who got involved in racing as well and was one of the pioneers of what we know now as Nascar. He was a successful driver who drove at Daytona and other speedways. Bruce got out of racing to pursue what is now Griffin Thermal Products.
Bruce Griffin, the son and current driver and co-owner of the team picked up on racing at an early age and began go cart racing from 1979-1983.
Bruce had a very successful go cart career so he expanded it to the Super Late Model category in 1983-1992. In 1994-1995 Griffin Racing moved up into the Nascar Camping World Truck Series with driver Jack Sprague #31 and #78. After leeaving the sport for a period time Griffin returned from 1996-1998 only to come back to the Florida Pro Series and set a track record of 67 wins in a row out of 79 races with driver Gary Balough. They also had 5 2nd places finishes and 2 DNF’s that year. They still hold the track recored to this day.
