Racing for Premier Motorsports, newest team member Ryan Beat has bridged the gap between motorcycles and race trucks quickly.  Beat accrued over 12 amateur championships and spent four year racing supercross and motocross around the world before succumbing to an injury.  After two years of intense physical therapy and a conversation with Kenny Osborn, Beat made the decision to try racing a Trophy Kart at the Trophy Kart World Championships.  Beat finished third that day among some of the sport’s top names and went on to garner eight wins and 10 podiums in the following year.  If his history on a motorcycle is any indication, Beat will certainly be one to watch in 2013 and beyond.
