Born and raised in the south Georgia town of Pooler, Andrew Smith is firmly rooted in small town values. He still hangs out with his friends and he treasures his family. When he's not working on his race cars, there's a good chance that you can find him four-wheeling or mud-boggin'.
But look just on the other side of that humble foundation and you will find a fierce competitor with some big time skills and the determination and desire to be the absolute best at whatever he does.
And what he does is race!
From his first trip to the race track at age two weeks until this day, Andrew has lived and breathed racing. Starting with his first kart race at age 8 and his first championship at 9, Andrew has proven that he is all business when he goes on the track.
Since those early days, Andrew has racked up over 200 wins, 3 Legend car track championships, Legend car championships for road courses and dirt tracks, and a Legend car National Championship in 2008. He has won on road courses in a late model stock car and on dirt in full-sized cars. It really doesn't matter what it is, Andrew can drive it and win.
In 2009, Andrew was the first racer ever to earn the prestigious Golden Wheel Award as the winner of the inaugural Humpy's Heroes Driver Development program.
Andrew still has his sights set on the being the best at the highest levels of the racing world. Now, truthfully, it's simply a matter of time.
