A two-time Pro-Lite Champion, Ryan moved into the PRO2 class for the 2020 season and saw immediate success, which has continued into 2021 with multiple PRO2 wins, including the Championship Off-Road events at Dirt City and the Crandon Brush Run.
In addition to his success on the track, Ryan is building his brand off the track. He recently relocated his race team from California to North Carolina and emerged with the Championship Off-Road title in the new Pro-Spec Truck Class he helped develop with Chevrolet.
"This is a class that gives opportunity back to all of the racers that still own inch and a half (chassis tube diameter) trucks and would like to come back out and race but also doesn’t exclude racers that already have the current chassis trucks," says Ryan. "I feel that this class also gives or lends itself to bridging the gap between sportsman side-by-side’s or Trophy Kart to Pro Lite. This will be a driver's class as it brings it back to the original days of Pro-Lite where you have a lower more affordable horsepower motor and a four-speed manual transmission. So far this is by far one of my most favorite trucks to drive."
"To be honest with you, the racing thing for me and my family is what drives us. It gets us up every day and keeps us motivated to go after our dreams and goals, and the things we want out of life. I am thankful for the opportunity that I get to call this a job."

2018-2019 Archives: Ryan won the 2018 Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series Pro Lite championship and is in contention to win his second straight Pro Lite title in 2019. Ryan’s career started on two wheels at age five, where he earned more than a dozen amateur motorcycle championships and spent five years racing AMA Supercross. While recuperating from a serious injury he was invited to race in an adult Trophy Kart race, and that ignited his passion for short course. After a successful UTV career, Ryan moved up to Pro Lite in 2012, with finishes of second, third and fifth in points before his breakthrough championship in 2018. “Winning that championship was everything to me,” Beat said. It was everything that we’ve worked for.” Beat would like to finish up 2019 with that second Pro Lite championship before moving up to Pro 2 or Pro 4.
