Al Grinnan Memories
Al Grinnan Memories

Great dirt and pavement modified and Late Model Sportsman driver from Fredericksburg and Mechanicsville, Virginia. Former Virginia State NASCAR Late Model Sportsman champion and NASCAR Modified Division Most Popular Driver. Equally at home on dirt or pavement.

Al won races from Maine to Florida. He was especially a crowd favorite in his NASCAR pavement cars at Richmond's Southside Speedway on Friday night and with his dirt "outlaw" cars at Wilson County on Saturday nights.

Al was known to take a pickup truck load of watermelons from Virginia to Wilson, NC on hot summer Saturdays to share with fellow competitors. He and Hemingway, SC's Mutt Powell developed a spirited rivalry at Wilson to equal Grinnan's rivalry at Southside with Sonny Hutchins and "Terrible" Tommy Ellis.
