Andrew started racing in 2008 in the
Cruiser Class at Heart O' Texas Speedway because his brother-in-law was
racing and got a new car so Andrew drove his old one. His first
win was that same year. Career highlights include Track
Championship in '10 in the Cruiser Class, leading in the Points in '11.
The thrill of racing for Andrew is
driving. It's a rush. He also loves all the time he gets to
spend with family since they all love it. His most exciting racing
moment was winning his first race. His first Championship!
Definitely the time he got to spend racing against his little brother
before he passed away in '09. Andrew will never forget all the
great times they had on and off the track. He's most proud of
winning the Cruiser Championship in '10.
Andrew's racing heroes are Jimmie
Johnson, NASCAR. He is amazing! Locally Keith Green and Doug
Andrews. Andrew has been watching them since he was little.
Of racing, Andrew says, "It's harder
than it looks but it's a blast! They have no idea the amount of
time and work that is done before you even get to the track!".
