Tim Andrews (born January 15, 1983, in Mooresville, North Carolina) is an American stock car racing driver and respected engineer. Son of championship-winning NASCAR crew chief Paul Andrews. As of 2014, he works as the car chief for the No. 19 Toyota Camry of TriStar Motorsports driven by Mike Bliss.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Andrews is the son of NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chief Paul Andrews,[2]

Career[edit]

Andrews began his NASCAR racing career in the Busch North Series in 2002, finishing sixth at New Hampshire International Speedway.[3] He ran for Rookie of the Year in the series in 2003,[2] finishing fourth in the first race of the year,[3] but lost his ride midway through the season due to loss of sponsorship.[4]

Andrews ran a limited schedule in the Busch North Series, renamed the Busch East Series in 2006 and the Camping World East Series in 2008, from 2004 to 2008; he scored his first career win in the series at Dover International Speedway in September 2006 in the Sunoco 150, beating former Winston Cup Series driver Steve Park in a green-white-checkered finish for the victory.[5] In 2007 Andrews made his debut in the ARCA Re/MAX Series at Nashville Superspeedway, running a limited schedule in the series that year.[6]

Andrews drove the Key Motorsports No. 42 at Road America in 2011.

Andrews moved up to NASCAR's national touring series in 2009, making his debut in the Nationwide Series at Nashville in the Nashville 300, finishing 33rd.[7] He ran three further races during the 2009 season, and five in 2010, before attempting the majority of the 2011 Nationwide Series season. Andrews took over the 2nd Chance Motorsports No. 79 following the firing of previous driver Jennifer Jo Cobb;[8] he was fired by the team after the STP 300 at Chicagoland Speedway in an incident in which the team's owner fired the entire team, with instructions to "find [their] own way back to Charlotte".[9] He drove most of the remainder of the year for Key Motorsports.[10]

Andrews joined Go Green Racing for three of the last four races of the 2011 Nationwide Series season; he returned to the team in 2012, with plans to run a limited schedule in the Nationwide Series (in association with Randy Hill Racing) and Sprint Cup Series.[11] The team hired Paul Andrews as crew chief for its Sprint Cup Series team, making it the first father and son driver and crew chief combination in the series since 1987.[12] The team planned to make its Cup Series debut at Bristol Motor Speedway in March,[13] but delayed its first appearance on the track until the STP 400 at Kansas Speedway in late April.[14]

In 2013, Andrews joined is father, Paul Andrews, at Cunningham Motorsports. Andrews will be working to expand the teams' already significant reputation for delivering results on and off the track and will assist his dad as both a crew chief and driving instructor in the ARCA and K&N Series.
