NASCAR Cup News Hershel McGriff Breaks Own Record Written by Brandon Hensley �� Monday, 20 July 2009 07:36 On Sunday at Portland International Raceway Hershel McGriff became the oldest NASCAR driver after the 81 year old completed the Salute to the Troops 125 NASCAR Camping World Series West race.�Hershel qualified his Park Corporation Chevrolet on the pole, but was forced by NASCAR to start on the back row after changing his carburetor.�"We had to change it," said Hershel.

"I didn't want to go out there and flop around.

We didn't have time to repair it -- we'd already done that."�A native of Bridal Veil, Oregon, McGriff was able to shake the kinks out after a seven year break from the sport to finish 13th at the Oregon road course.

�"Well, my competition went faster," McGriff said following the race.

"This is my first race in seven years, so I'm a little rusty.

Fortunately, the car ran good."�Breaking his own record as the oldest driver, Hershel's career has spanned over six decades.

In 1954 Hershel was convinced by Brian France to compete full-time in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series where he earned four victories. Hershel has also collected 37 triumphs in the West Series.� MORE NASCAR NEWSNext >� More NASCAR Cup News Newman To Run USAC Siver Crown At Indy, Leffler Enters USAC Midget Race Some Teams Need The Weekend Off Fans Can Reserve LMS Seat For $19.60 NASCAR Claims Mayfield Test Positive Again Kevin Harvick Wants Out Truex Jr.
