About Andy Hillenburg
Andy started his racing career in the Indianapolis Soap Box Derby when he was only 11 years old. With a taste for racing, he went on to win the state quarter midget championship only a year later in 1975.
After quarter midgets, “Drew” hit the sprint car circuit. He raced all over the country in sprints cars and Silver Crown cars before deciding to permanently move to North Carolina in 1990. The next decade would prove to be a busy one.
In 1991, Andy ran in the Winston Cup Series before becoming a test driver for more than 30 different teams. In between racing gigs, he continued to participate in the Series as a spotter for drivers such as Harry Labonte, Bobby Labonte, Ken Schrader, Ricky Rudd and Al Unser Jr. among others.
Andy ran his first ARCA race in February, 1992. He won the ARCA championship in 1995 — the same year he got his first Daytona ARCA 200 win. His second was in 1997.
During this time, Andy was a test driver for the International Race of Champions (IROC), where he was able to work alongside some of the world's best drivers. He was also a test driver for Ford Motor Company and Dodge as they prepared for their return to NASCAR racing.
Two of Andy's greatest achievements soon followed: he started in the NASCAR Daytona 500 in 1998 and, just two years later, ran in the Indianapolis 500 in 2000.
After retiring from racing, Andy used his knowledge of the sport to help coordinate stunts in a number of films including 3: The Dale Earnhardt Story and Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. He has worked on over 120 commercials, often coordinating stunts from behind the camera and racing in front of it.
Andy currently manages an ARCA race team, fielding the number 01, 10, 11, 12 and 66 cars. He has mentored numerous drivers over the years and continues to support a large roster of talent.
