Andy Pilgrim (born 18 August 1956 in Nottingham) is a British-born racing driver, who became a United States citizen in 1998. He began racing an IMSA Renault Cup (a semi-pro entry level series) Renault Alliance in the 1980s.

Racing career

His professional racing began in 1996 when he made his 24 Hours of Le Mans debut. He joined the Chevrolet Corvette factory team in 1999. In 2001 he was selected as teammate for Dale Earnhardt, Jr. and Dale Earnhardt Sr. in the 24 Hours of Daytona and the team finished second in class. He left the Corvette program in 2004 but stayed with General Motors, driving for the winning team at the Daytona 24 in a Doran-Pontiac and spending the rest of the season driving for the new Cadillac CTS-V factory team in the SPEED World Challenge GT Series. The following year Pilgrim won the driver's championship in that series in his CTS-V. Staying with the team, he finished 3rd and 2nd in the series in 2006 and 2007. In 2007 he also made his NASCAR Busch Series debut, driving two road course races for Dale Earnhardt, Jr.'s JR Motorsports team. One of them was at Montreal in the inaugural NAPA 200 in which he almost won but had run out of gas on a restart losing the race, and barely avoided Marcos Ambrose who was crashing as a result of being tapped by Robby Gordon.

In 2008 he continued to drive the SPEED World Challenge CTS-V, although it is now a privateer team rather than a factory program, sponsored by Remington.

In 2009, Pilgrim joined Randy Pobst as part of the K-Pax team, campaigning the Volvo S60 in the SPEED World Challenge.

For 2011 Pilgrim rejoined GM in World Challenge driving the factory Cadillac CTS-V Coupe alongside Johnny O'Connell.

Pilgrim made his Sprint Cup debut in 2011 at Infineon driving the 46 Car for Whitney Motorsports, where he finished 26th.

He currently resides in Boca Raton, Florida.
