Team GT newcomer, Ray Griffith, is serving double duty in 2013 racing in both the BITD Series and the LOORRS Series full-time. Griffith started his racing career on motorcycles but has successfully moved to trucks and never looked back. Part of Team GT's "Young Guns", Griffith's natural talent is evident as he speeds through the desert all the way to the podium. Look for Griffith to be a contender in the Class 1500 championship battle in BITD. And, while he's new to short course racing, don't count him out of ProLite competition in the LOORRS Series.
