He drove the #54 Toys "R" Us Chevy for Team Bristol Motorsports, but was unable to get into the race.

His teammate was his brother Wayne Grubb who also raced for his father's team. After a very successful year Grubb was offered a ride at Brewco Motorsports in 1999. Kevin raced for Brewco through 2001. He would amass 18 top tens in those three years. At the end of 2001 he was tabbed to race for Team Bristol Motorsports. The team was plagued by failures, and Grubb was released by the end of the season. In 2003, he signed a partial season deal with Carroll Motorsports. He ran well but had a series of engine problems and got caught in accidents not of his making. Carroll Motorsports folded at the conclusion of the 2003 season. While heading into the 2004 season, he was scheduled to compete in a handful of races for Team Rensi Motorsports. However he failed a substance abuse test, and was inactive until June 2006 where he on an entry list for a Busch Series race at Nashville Speedway as the driver of the #56 Mac Hill Motorsports Chevy. There was some initial doubt as to whether or not he was officially reinstated, however multiple reports stated that a NASCAR official confirmed that he was reinstated. He will drive the car in non-companion events the team enters, however Kevin Lepage will still be the driver most race weekends. Since joining the team, Grubb earned Mac Hill's first top-ten at Gateway. [1]
