Steve Grissom's world seems to go around in circles. Of course, that's because he's paid to drive NASCAR Winston Cup cars, Busch Grand National cars and Craftsman trucks at high speeds around oval tracks. But then, his career has been going in circles too. In 1993 he won the Busch series title with 11 victories, one in the prestigious Goody's 300 at Daytona International Speedway. That earned him a Winston Cup ride with Diamond Ridge Motorsports. Now, he's trying to get back to that series.
