    Matt Andrews made his debut in sports cars in 2004 in US Touring Car. After a season and a half of development there and other club racing, Matt found a niche in laying down singular fast laps for a multitude of time attack teams racking up track records and wins. With a wide range of experience in different platforms, he has proven to be fast in both very light sports cars as well as extremely high powered, traction limited race cars and has become one of the drivers with the highest win ratios in time attack. He has also worked as a development driver providing feedback and data analysis for tire manufactures and companies looking to extract the most out of their vehicles or aftermarket parts. He has made appearances in print media and video games as a driver and a writer.

    Matt holds two degrees from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. When not driving, Matt is a sales executive for a leading technology manufacture and runs a sales team in the western United States. He has experience consulting with companies on how best to position themselves in order to reach a target audience and build plans for profitable growth. He has used these skills in motorsports by working with teams and sponsors on developing mutually beneficial marketing plans.
