Ryan Staub has had a passion for cars, speed, and competition since he was a child.  He officially became involved in motorsports in 2002 after purchasing his first BMW M3.  Shortly after the purchase of that M3, he became heavily involved in SCCA Autocross and BMW Club, Porsche Club, and Audi Club high-performance driving events.  Due to his dedication and focus, he progressed quickly and worked with professional coaches to further refine his driving skills.  In 2005 he passed the BMW CCA, Porsche Club of America, and Audi Club Instructor Training Schools to become an approved HPDE instructor.

I met Ryan a bunch of years ago when he traveled all the way from Kansas to Virginia International Raceway to work with me.  He had a lot of drive to advance his abilities at that point and in a short period of time, he came a long way.  It has been a pleasure to know and work with him along the way – Ryan shows what some ability, persistence, and a great attitude can accomplish in this sport.
