Ryan Beat started Ryan Beat Motorsports (R/BM) in 2015 with his dad, a few friends, and a passion for racing. Ryan built a PRO-LITE truck and went full-time racing in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) using a U-Haul to get from track to track. In just his third start as an owner/driver, Ryan posted his first win at Wild Horse-Pass and would go on to win at Estero Beach and claim 10 top-10 finishes in 17 starts.
Since then, R/BM has grown to a multi-truck team and, in 2021, moved its headquarters to Denver, NC, to a new, state-of-the-art 15,000 sq. ft. facility. The R/BM team currently races in the Championship Off-Road Series with entries in the PRO2, PRO-LITE, and PRO-SPEC classes. R/BM is the largest team in the series and is the only factory-backed team with the Chevrolet bowtie dawning the grill of each truck. In 2021, Ryan worked with Chevrolet to develop the current PRO-SPEC truck and, in 2022, entered the class with up-and-coming driver Gray Leadbetter. Gray posted four wins on the season and brought home the championship, breaking many barriers as a 17-year-old female driver.
As a four-time champion himself, Ryan is committed to performance and attributes the growth and success of the team to a world-class sponsorship base. Companies like Bilstein, Lucas Oil, Toyo, and Vision Wheel, are showcased not just on the hood but under it as well. R/BM is proud to support its partners with on-track performance and best-in-class marketing services.
Built on hard work, determination, and a passion for racing, R/BM has built a winning reputation and is known as a leader in the off-road racing community. Stay tuned as the team expands its racing footprint into other series.
Four-time Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series (LOORRS) champion, Ryan Beat, lives for competition. For the last decade, Ryan has raced at short-course tracks across the U.S., claiming records, wins, championships, and winning the hearts of fans. After starting his career in Supercross and Motocross, an injury forced Ryan to make the move to four wheels and a historic career.
After a year in the LOORRS UTV class, Ryan moved into a Pro-Lite truck with the Hart & Huntington team, where he finished second in the Pro-Lite Championship. Soon after, Ryan made the bold move to start his own team and established himself as one of the top short-course teams and drivers. He boasts over 33 career wins, 79 podium finishes, and claimed 2018 Driver-of-the-Year honors as well as earning the coveted Rick Huseman award in 2018 and 2020. He has captured the 2017 Pro-Lite World Champion title as well as won back-to-back LOORRS Pro-Lite Championships in 2018 and 2019.
Now racing the Championship Off-Road Series, Ryan has expanded his team and is the only Chevy OEM factory-backed team. He recently moved to North Carolina, where he's built a new 15,000 sq. ft. shop. His personal life mirrors the success the 36-year-old has seen as a businessperson, team owner, and driver. He's married to his wife, Shawna, and they have two daughters whom you will always see at the track supporting Ryan as his number one fans.
