NASCAR Whelen All-American Series News
VETERAN DRIVER RAY ANDREWS GOING FOR THE TITLE
Mar 31, 2006 - updated May 8th, 2006 4:44pm

Wooddbridge, Va. --

Ray Andrews has been interested in racing from the time he was in elementary school.

This year, at the age of 41, Ray is racing in the Late Model Stock Division at Old Dominion Speedway in Manassas, Virginia, with his eyes set on winning the LMS Track Championship.

Growing up, his dad took him and his 2 brothers to ODS on Saturday nights. They would also travel to Martinsville, VA for the Modified/Sportsman series, as well as watching the Grand National Races.

When he was in his 20's, Ray thought he would like to drive "some type of race car." In January, 1996, he and his wife, along with his brother and a friend, traveled to the Winston Cup Preview Show in Winston-Salem , North Carolina. He saw the Allison Legacy car and after having a conversation with the Allison's and picking up some vital information, he decided to purchase a car and give racing a try.

In April, 1996, at the age of 31, and running a fever of 101, Ray competed in his first race at Martinsville.

Ray's best finish was a 2nd at Coastal Plains Raceway in 2000 or 2001. We had a great car, and started 13th. We charged up to 7th with 15 laps remaining, we were pushed down in the grass on the front stretch, passed 3 or 4 cars going into turn 4 and came out of turn 2 in 3 rd or 4th. We raced as hard as we could, but ran out of laps before we could catch the leader.

In April, 2006, Andrews' Racing celebrates 10 years of competitive driving.

Ray's favorite Nextel Cup Driver is Dale Jarrett. Ray says, when Dale started out he had a struggle, getting caught up in wrecks. I've heard some people talk bad about him, but he never gave up. With that strong determination, he eventually won the Cup Championship.

He has some good advice for youngsters who want to get into the sport. "Decide what kind of racer you want to be. Do you want to race for the fame and money or do you want to be a real racecar driver? Then go after it. Read, talk to people and learn everything you can about the sport and the cars.

Mr. Andrews is looking forward to competing in the ARCA race at Daytona in 2007 and perhaps earning the opportunity to compete in the Craftsman Truck Series. He is also working very hard, to make Andrews' Auto Body Repair a huge success.

Best of luck to you, Ray, in the upcoming season. You are a great racer, and you will make everyone proud.
