It all started at the age of 8, when Ryan’s dad sold the jet boat, gave up summers at the lake, and bought the kids their first go-kart. It was only after a handful of races on a local dirt oval that Ryan first displayed a natural ability to race anything that he was strapped into.
Over the next 7 years he would rack up 7 local karting championship titles with hundreds of wins and series trophies. From his first rookie season to the adult stock class as a teen, he was unstoppable. By 2001, Ryan had mastered kart racing on the dirt and was eager to find the next racing series to conquer. By this time Ryan and his family realized his next step in racing would to be to take the kart to the asphalt. With a limited amount of asphalt racing venues in east Texas, Ryan’s dad, Roger, decided he had an excellent opportunity to bring an asphalt racing surface to the area. In 2002, Roger Lynch and his family, opened 201 Go-Kart Speedway in New Boston, Texas housing a 1/10 mile ‘D’ shaped asphalt oval with an adjoining ¼ mile sprint track. Ryan made the transition from dirt to asphalt with ease. Not only did he return to his winning ways but he took the knowledge from his new home track to the IKF series, where he posted an impressive 3rd place finish at the 2004 IKF Road Race Grand Nationals in the World Formula Class.
In 2004, Ryan would find himself graduating from high school with honors and a big decision to make. He was determined to continue his racing career, but he also realized the fierce competition within the racing world and he knew it would be best to continue with school at this time. Ryan continued kart racing at his home track and across the east Texas area while working on his college degree at The University of Texas at Tyler. Any spare time he had was spent helping his dad manage the family racing business. He developed and maintained the speedway’s website, points system, and assisted with the set-up of the new lap timing system. He was also the driver for the track’s team as they participated in the Bulldog 100, a charity go-kart race at Texarkana College.
In 2007, Ryan was able to run a limited IKF schedule and he brought home 2 feature wins and a 3rd place points finish in the Region 4B RWYB class. That very summer, Ryan hopped behind the wheel of an IMCA Limited Modified to gain some car experience. He quickly showed he was capable of handling any kind of racecar, driving his way into the A-main in his very first attempt at a dirt-track championship race. Ryan decided to race the limited modified for a full points season at 67 Speedway, a ¼ mile dirt oval in 2008. He finished 4th in points which included 1 win and 12 top 5’s in his rookie season.
In the winter months of 2008, the INEX Legends Racing Series caught Ryan’s attention. Learning the importance of setup, tires, and the ability to get through the corners, this series would be like no other he had raced previously. In his rookie season of 2009, Ryan finished 3rd in the Summer Stampede Series at the Texas Motor Speedway ¼ mile and brought home the 4th place trophy for the Lone Star Legends Pro Division overall. Ryan also earned 1 win and 3 top 5’s at Monroe Motor Speedways 3/8 mile. Finishing in the top 10% or 25th of the entire nation’s Legends Pro drivers in just his first season, gives Ryan the motivation he needs to pursue the next phase of his racing career. In 2010, he will be competing on the national circuit with the United States Super Truck series hoping to gain valuable experience to further his racing status and abilities.
