Andrew Whelan is the driver of the #5 car. He is also an owner/driver. Andrew came into the Can-Am Midgets from go karting and was in his first campaign with the club. Whelan finished the season in 6th place in the Qwick Wick Can-Am Midgets presented by Miller Office Trailers championship standings.
Andrew was able to make every race on the schedule. He had his spin outs, close calls, and even ended up flipped upside down mid-season at Flamboro Speedway. After a very strong showing at the first race of the season, but not finishing the race, Whelan was able to rack up his first heat race win with the TQ midgets, a Dash for Cash win, 2 top 5 finishes, and 8 top 10’s.
Andrew Whelan and the #5 crew finished the year with many great milestones in their rookie campaign. Stay tuned as we make our way into the top 5 point standings for the Qwick Wick Can-Am Midgets presented by Miller Office Trailers!
