Andrew Deal Signs Up For Rookie ASCS Season

CONCORD, N.C. — After years of making various starts with the American Sprint Car Series, Andrew Deal is joining the national tour full-time for his rookie season in 2024.

The Caney, Kansas, resident enters with over 20 years of experience behind the wheel and eight previous starts with ASCS National Series — scoring a career-best finish of fifth last year.

“I wanted to spend some time with my dad and go have some fun doing what we love together,” Deal said about joining the tour full-time. “Life is short, and my girls will be starting their own activities soon, so time is limited. I have also been blessed with extremely good help at my tire shop, and I trust them to do a great job while I’m gone.”

Deal began racing at 13 years old before choosing to focus on school and sports. Back behind the wheel at 18, he began racing Micros at Port City Raceway and Will Rogers Raceway.

Year to year, he’s gathered one accolade after the other, picking up a Tulsa Shootout win in 2011, an Oil Capital Racing Series championship in 2014, an A main start in the Chili Bowl Nationals in 2015, and most recently, he scored $12,222 at the Iron Man 55 at Creek County Speedway last year.

Piloting his own Victory Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep of Ottawa No. 15d sprint car, he’s already off to a strong start this racing season. He’s earned four top fives in five feature starts, including a third-place finish with the ASCS Sooner Region on March 23. 

“This year, I just want to represent my savior, my sponsors and those who have supported me along my career in a positive way and be competitive each night,” Deal said. “That’s my goal.”
