Pilgrim will lead new driving programs at the facility with a goal of helping drivers of all ages and skill levels become more proficient behind the wheel.
“We’re thrilled to have Andy and not only his more than 30 years of incredible racing skills, but also his expertise on distracted driving,” said NCM Motorsports Park General Manager Mitch Wright. “With Andy joining our team, we will be able to offer a number of programs in the coming months, from driving courses and one-on-one coaching by Andy, to speaking engagements on safe driving habits at schools.”
Pilgrim’s long motorsport history with General Motors and Corvette began in 1999 when he joined Corvette Racing. The driver scored the team’s historic first victory at Texas Motor Speedway in September 2000.
From there, Pilgrim made his way through GTS, and to the Cadillac CTS-V factory team in the SPEED World Challenge GT Series. He won the driver’s championship in 2004 and made podium appearances in 2006 and 2007. He’s also spent plenty of time in a stock car after Pilgrim made his NASCAR Busch Series debut in 2007.
