Let’s start off with a few fun questions….
Outside of your RC racing career what are some of your interests and hobbies?
I have a Polaris Razor and love to go camping and ride it at the dunes.
On the road, what is your go-to restaurant?
Where is your favorite place in the world?
What kind of music do you prefer?
I listen to rap and Howard Stern
Now, let’s move on to the more serious questions……..
In total, how long have you been racing?
21 years or so.
In those years how long have you been running for Team Orion?
I ran for Peak and Orion when I was young, but this is my first year since turning pro.
What is your favorite thing about running for Team Orion?
The dependability of the product and the support at the track is top notch.
Could you tell me your best race memory since joining the team?
Last year at the JConcepts race in Chico, I got the full Team Orion experience and I was sold. I felt at that point I made the right choice.
What advice would you give to new up and coming drivers?
I think the first and most important thing is to have fun. This is for fun and keeping it fun is really the only thing that matters.
Thank you for your time Ryan and good luck at the races!!
