Brief History
Andy started racing at just the age of 13-years-old in 2006 in the Mini Stock division at Mt. Pleasant Speedway (Mt. Pleasant, Michigan). He enjoyed success in the division before moving to the UMP Open Wheel Modified division in 2009, where he claimed Rookie of the Year honors. At the end of the 2011 season, Galgoci caught the attention of legendary car builder and Dirt Late Model Hall of Famer, CJ Rayburn, who asked Andy to pilot a CJ Rayburn House Car in some late-season events. Galgoci would race the car at Tazewell Speedway (Tazewell, Tennessee), Lake Cumberland Speedway (Burnside, Kentucky), and Brownstown Speedway (Brownstown, Indiana). He impressively registered his first Super Late Model heat race win in just his second night in the car at Lake Cumberland Speedway.

The 2012 season saw Galgoci making a full-tilt attack on Super Late Model events in his area, and he came away with several strong runs, which included multiple heat race and b-main wins. Another notable highlights included a ninth place finish in the Wood Tic 100 at Merritt Raceway (Merritt, Michigan) as well as a fifth place finish in the Battle by the Bay at Tri City Motor Speedway (Auburn, Michigan), and a sixth place finish in the Michigan Dirt Cup Championship Race at Winston Motor Speedway (Winston, Michigan). He also claimed multiple Rookie of the Year awards as well as a fifth place finish in the final track standings at Mt. Pleasant Speedway.

Galgoci and his team are now eagerly preparing for the 2013 season, where he will continue to expand his racing career as he travels to new tracks and races with even tougher competition.

During the 2014 season behind the wheel of the of the University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) #01 Open Wheel Modified, Galgoci collected four Top 10 outings in 12 total events. With the weather affecting three of his dates, Andy notched one Top 5 finish.

Making his way to 28 events during the 2015 season, Andy Galgoci picked up one win at Limaland Motorsports Park (Lima, Ohio) for the Modified Invitational. With the rain cancelling four of his scheduled events, Galgoci landed nine Top 10 finishes. He also wrapped up the season with three Top 5 outings.

Competing in a shortened 2016 season that saw Andy Galgoci graduate University of Northwestern Ohio (UNOH) and hop behind the wheel of his C.J. Rayburn #13 Open Wheel Modified, Galgoci wheeled his way into victory lane one time at Plymouth Speedway (Plymouth, Indiana). Running in only 13 events throughout the year, Andy registered four Top 10 finishes and one Top 5 outing.
