Scott Griffin Motorsports Hires Lance Larsen

Veteran wrench-turner now a full-time advisor on Serta dragster driven by Andrew Cowin

NORWALK, Ohio (March 15, 2006) -- Lance Larsen, who has served as associate crew chief on Clay Millican's five-time world champion Werner Enterprises Top Fuel dragster for the last two seasons, has been tapped by Scott Griffin Motorsports as a full-time advisor to team Crew Chief Keith Stewart. Larson has joined the SGM team and will accompany it to the eMax Drag Racing Series season opener, the Amalie Oil Texas Nationals at San Antonio Raceway.

"Lance has a lot of experience and his knowledge of IHRA venues will be a big plus for us," Griffin said. "This will help free up Keith to concentrate more on tuning the car. Plus, he's a great guy. Keith and I brought Lance on board to really add to the depth of our race team."

Larsen worked with Kenny Koretsky Motorsports Crew Chief Mike Kloeber to help guide Millican to the last two of the team's five straight world championships.

"There are no hard feelings on either end," Millican said. "Lance had another opportunity and he took it. Everyone on this race team wishes him nothing but the best."
