Ryan was born into a racing family, his grand father Alex was crew chief on Scott Wilson’s legendary “Time Machine” NHRA Top Fuel dragster during the 60’s. His grand father also helped out Scott when he went Supermodified racing at the Oswego Speedway in the 70’s. Ryan’s father Wade raced motocross, Can-Am Midgets, and ISMA Supermodifieds up until 2002. 
 
Ryan has been racing for 25 years, at the age of 6 he got his start racing a Jr. Dragster at St. Thomas Raceway Park for a family friend. He then moved to Jr. Micro Sprints on dirt, and indoors in Niagara Falls, NY where he won over 30 races and 4 championships. He moved onto a street stock at Delaware Speedway at the age of 15 where he had multiple top 5’s and won the rookie of the year against a veteran field of racers. 
 
The next step was the USAC Ford Focus Midget series racing south of the border. Ryan won the “Glen Neibel Classic” at Anderson Speedway in Indiana and won on the dirt at the Concordia High Banks in Kansas. He would finish a strong 3rd & 4th in point standings. 
 
A 410 pavement Sprint Car was up next for Ryan and was highlighted by a 7th place finish in his first Little 500, May 2006. Since then he has three top 5 finishes in the Little 500 with a best finish of 4th in 2008, which saw him lead 135 laps. His first Sprint Car win came at his home track, Delaware Speedway in 2006 with the AVSS.  Ryan continues to compete with AVSS, MSR and KoW where he’s finished 2nd in the championship four times, and has won 19 feature events that include wins in Canada, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Florida. He also currently holds the all time track record at Delaware Speedway.
 
Ryan has also raced ISMA Supermodifieds on a part time basis, with a career best 2nd place finish at Delaware Speedway in 2007, which saw him lead 60 laps. Ryan also ran his first Oswego Speedway International Classic in 2013 where he came home with a 4th place finish in his first try and was awarded the fastest Canadian. He also had a strong top 5 finish in Quebec that same year with ISMA at Autodrome Chaudiere.
 
Ryan has also ran one off events in other cars such as Legends indoors in Indiana, 360 Dirt Sprint Cars at Ohsweken Speedway, TBARA Sprints in North Carolina & Florida and USAC Silver Crown cars in Indianapolis.
 
The AVBBSS series looks forward to seeing Ryan Litt on the track this year as we travel Michigan and Indiana with the “Worlds Fastest Short Track Cars.”
