Andy Seuss had a very successful 2014 racing season. He won the NASCAR Whelen Southern Modified Tour championship while driving the #11 Ideal Racing Modifieds owned by Eddie Harvey. He also earned the Most Popular Driver award for the Tour.
Like many racers across the country, driving racecars is a sideline for Seuss. Unlike many of those other racers though, Seuss has been able to make much of his living by working on other people’s racecars. Last year alone, Seuss worked as a consultant on everything from NASCAR Truck Series machines to ARCA Racing Series cars to other Modifieds. Now, Seuss is going to take another step forward in that career path by teaming up with fellow competitor Brian Dauzat to form Andy Seuss Motorsports.
Andy Seuss Motorsports will compete in the ARCA Racing Series. Two superspeedway cars are currently being prepared for next month’s ARCA Open Test at Daytona International Speedway. The team has open seats available for the test dates and for upcoming ARCA races as well.
The team will utilize Rahmoc engines for their venture. Seuss won the WSMT championship this year with Rahmoc power under the hood. Rahmoc has a deep history in the sport and built strong engines throughout the years for competitors at all three top levels of NASCAR racing. Drivers like the late Neil Bonnett, the late Dick Trickle, Morgan Shepherd and Joe Bessey have all used Rahmoc engines.
What sets Andy Seuss Motorsports apart from many other driver development teams is that Seuss understands the challenges facing young drivers and knows how to keep costs low while still preparing competitive racecars.
“I know how expensive it is to move up the racing ladder because those financial hurdles have held me back in my own career,” said Seuss. “I’m a racer and not a businessman. I know where to budget resources to prepare a good car and still keep the overhead low. Our team can represent a sponsor well without being flashy. We can do a lot of work in-house instead of subcontracting it out. At the end of the day, we are not looking to support a large payroll or to make a big profit. We can offer a funded driver and a sponsor quite a bit of value for their investment.”
The team has open seats for open tests at Daytona on December 19th-21st as well as the January 17th-18th open test at Daytona and the upcoming test at Talladega Superspeedway. Opportunities for to join the team for the season-opening ARCA Racing Series event at Daytona in February are also available. In addition, the team can adapt their racing program to fit the needs and budget of any aspiring driver for the 2015 season.
“We are capable of going in any direction depending on what opportunities we have,” said Seuss.
