Andy McMillin has announced he has officially closed the doors to his #31 race shop. McMillin is stepping away from racing trophy trucks full time to focus on other opportunities.
McMillin posted the following statement his Facebook page:
Well… it’s officially a sad day. As they say and I’ve said in the past, all good things must come to an end. My race truck has been sold and is off to its new home.
I have also officially closed the doors of AM31 and will no longer be racing on a full-time basis. This was not an easy decision by any means, probably the hardest of my life actually, but is one that is best for my family and I at this time.
Racing is in my blood and is my passion; I still think about it non-stop and I don’t think that will ever change. We are keeping our pre-run trucks, chase trucks and all of our pit equipment because I know I’d still like to race in the longer races in whatever capacity or opportunity presents itself.
I look forward to lots more pre-running adventures with my dad and soon my own kids. Sharing the culture and adventure of Baja is really why we do all of of this to begin with.
I thank everyone from the bottom of my heart who believed in me, entrusted me to pay their paychecks, represent their brands, chased me around Baja and supported me in the races from near and far. None of this would have been possible without any of you.
I look forward to new business adventures in my future and am excited to see where life takes me. – Andy
