Orange County Fair Speedway – 10/24 – 10/25/15
Starting Position: 9th
Finishing Position: 5th
Andy had a great car all weekend, the Tom Sanford owned #41 car was fast right out of the trailer and proved that on race day as well. After all the pit stops were done Andy raced his way into the top 3 with 12 laps to go. A long red flag for a bad accident cooled Andy’s tires and on the ensuing restart it showed, he dropped back to 5th after contact with another car and the tires sealing over. He hung on for a top 5 finish for the TSR team.
Starting Position: 15th
Finish Position: DNF
Summary: Andy qualified well Saturday at Eastern States with the small block car and was able to win his heat race which gave him the 15th starting position. He made his way quickly in to the top 10, but as the fuel load burned down the car handling got worse and worse and decided to end his day early.
Syracuse Fairgrounds – 10/11/15
Starting Position: 34th
Finishing Position: 29th (DNF)
After two great pit stops and utilizing great pit stop strategy, Andy was in the top 15 with about 50 laps to go when the motor failed. The crew had figured out based on fuel and tires that Andy would have ended up at least 10th had he finished the race due to the drivers that dropped out in front of him by the end of the race. The DNF gave Andy a 29th place finish.
I-88 Speedway – 10/10/15
Starting Position: 13th
Finishing Position: 8th
Summary: Andy started the main event 13th due to an unlucky redraw. He started to pick his way through into the top 10 when he suffered a flat left rear tire and had to pit. He came back in the pits shortly after for a right rear tire as well. When it was all said and done he was able to work his way through to 8th position. He finished 3rd in the Short Track Super Series points for 2015.
