His first was in 1999, after 25 years of racing, and then again in 2002. The 2002 season has proved to be his best ever, as he won 7 main events. “the Grizz” is trying to wind down his racing days, but after 30 years it is hard to stay away. Doug is still striving to win the “figure eight nationals” or the “60 minutes of F.E.A.R.”. He doesn’t watch much television, except for NASCAR, and he prefers to listen to classic rock. He says it must be his age. When “the Grizz” is not racing, he is remodeling the old homestead, or working.
