Ryan Hart

About Ryan

Hart Racing got it's start when my dad, Roy Hart SR, got behind the wheel in the late 1950's and started racing various tracks around Washington & Oregon. I bought my first go-kart in late 2001 with piggy bank savings and have went on to create a well noted list of achievements...of course my parents, Roy & Barbara, remain my biggest fans to this day! The "shop" ( a tiny 2 car garage) sits in Dos Palos, California...No big sponsors, no rich uncles, just friends, family, hard work, and dedication carrying the #38 machine(s) to success. I have been involved in a large variety of racing including 2 & 4 cycle go-karts, 4-cylinders, Enduro's, Hobby stocks, Street Stocks, and Pro Late Models on both dirt and asphalt, ovals and road courses.
