Andy Evans (born June 27, 1951) is an American auto racing driver and team owner.[1] As a driver, he won the 1995 and 1997 12 Hours of Sebring. He owned Scandia, an IndyCar and IMSA team.

In 1996, Evans and Roberto Muller bought the International Motor Sports Association, and changed its name to Professional Sports Car Racing (PSCR).[2][3] He also bought controlling interests in the Sebring International Raceway and Mosport Park.[4] Evans sold those assets to Don Panoz in 2001.
