At just 28 years old, Beat’ s vivacious spirit and impenetrable work ethic have put the ‘ 51’ (Beat’ s signature racing number) in popular demand, and rewarded him an already admirable career as he goes in to year three of being a Team owner and driver of the Rockstar Energy backed Ryan Beat Motorsports (R/BM) Team.

He later retired his glory days on motorcycles after a devastating injury. Although, his passion for winning certainly did not end there.
