Racing in Seekonk Speedway's Youth Racing Association in 2001, winning his first feature on July 4 and securing the Rookie of the Year title by seasons end. The following year he was, at age 14, the youngest champion in the storied history of the 57 year-old Concrete Palace. The defending champion was third in the title chase in 2003.

Brit and his father knew it was time for the next step but were unsure of where it might be. NASCAR raised the competition age to 18 for it three premier divisions, NEXTEL, Busch and Craftsman Truck leaving them three years short of those aspirations, even though they have a great sponsor like Citrix, the world's [premier provider of remote computer-networking solutions for supporting their efforts. "We looked into NEMA," says Andy. "We went to the last race of the season at Thompson. They had a tough race, about eight cars finished. At the end we looked at each other and said, "How much fun was this?" "I still want him to race a NEMA Midget. I want him to get the experience of running with a wing. But, we looked at the Focus Series and it just made sense for us." Andersen would pick up his first Focus win at Hickory Speedway in NC beating two veteran drivers from Indiana in a stellar performance.

"If the road take me to the IRL or Cup, then I'll go" asserts Brit. And make no mistake about it, this kid is here to race.
