 About GRIP

Gary Crooks and Jason Enders are no strangers to the world of short track racing. Between them, they have more than fifty years of experience. It was a shared love of short track racing that led to the formation of GRIP Seminars in 2010. Knowing that racers across the country didn't have the time, funding or access to cutting edge technology and information, Gary and Jason wanted to find a way to help give every racer the chance to find victory lane.

Testimonials

Read what our past years participants have to say.

"Learning what data to collect testing and on race day, and how to use the data was the most beneficial thing i took out of the seminar."

-Keith Ennis, 2014, Mooresville

"I was able to get something from every part of GRIP. It was above and beyond anything I had expected. The best $ I have ever spent!!"

-GRIP Attendee, 2014, Mooresville

"This is the best seminar for your money anywhere. It was so good in 2013, that I returned in 2014 and brought 3 members of my team with me."

-Charles Denike, 2014, Mooresville

"I have learned more in 3 days than I have in 3 years. The wide variety of topics covered in this class in such a small amount of time is something you won't find elsewhere, I know my race team will benefit this season from taking this course."

-Derrick O'Donnell, 2014, Mooresville

"Very satisfied overall and feel that our money was well spent. I would recommend seminar to racers at late model level and above with significant race experience. I certainly learned a lot and confirmed thoughts regarding common misinformation about a few subjects.

-Richard Gdovic, 2014, Mooresville
