Career overviewEdit

In 1989, Belmont made his Winston Cup debut at Dover Downs International Speedway( Now Dover International) Peak Performance 500, starting 35th and finishing 29th after his #04 Winner Ford Cherry Hill Ford Thunderbird suffered braking failure. In 1992, he finished runner-up for Winston Cup Rookie of the Year despite running just eight races. His best NASCAR finish came in a Busch Series race in 1995 at Darlington Raceway.

Running in only five ARCA events in 1995, Andy earned three top five finishes. Three years later he became a regular competitor on the circuit, finishing the 1998 campaign in 5th place in the final point standings. He backed that up with a 6th-place finish in 1999. The following season resulted in another top ten finish in the final point standings.

Belmont finished in the top ten in ARCA points 4 years in a row.

Since 2000 he has run 174 races in the ARCA Re/MAX Series. He has not won yet, but has 54 top-ten finishes.

In 2006, Belmont attempted Cup racing again, entering a car in the Daytona 500 sponsored by Year One Muscle Cars and Fanscrew.com.

Ownership roleEdit

Belmont stepped out of the drivers seat and into an ownership role. His team, Andy Belmont Racing, was based in Lexington, NC, and ran two cars weekly in the ARCA Racing Series presented by Re/Max and Menards. Chad McCumbee last drove the No. 1 for ABR in 2011, winning the Bill France Four Crown tile with sponsorship from ModSpace. McCumbee had previously won races for ABR. In 2007, McCumbee won two races in five starts for ABR, at the Nashville Superspeedway and Pocono Raceway. McCumbee was the winner of the 2011 Allen Crowe 100 at Springfield in 2011.

Mikey Kile was ABR's last driver of its ARCA entries in 2012.

Personal lifeEdit

Belmont has 5 children and sold the race team moving back to the Philadelphia area in 2012 to help run a family business. Two of the three boys work with Belmont to run the business on a daily basis.
