The following is from BARTCON Racing…
From the desk of Colin Barton owner BARTCON Racing:
Wishing all our race family, friends and fans a Happy New Year and hoping that 2021 is better for all of us , it gives me the greatest honor to welcome our newest and final team member at BARTCON Racing for the 2021 MotoAmerica Season. Next year Ryne Snooks #270 will be racing his Yamaha FZ-07 in the Twins Cup along with his team mate Cooper McDonald.
For those of you that have not yet had the pleasure of meeting Ryne, let me tell you a little bit about him and how he came to end up racing for BARTCON Racing (some call crazy Irish) Team. Ryne has been competing in MotoAmerica for a couple of years now and for the most part has been doing it alone with help of a few good friends Ryne along with his family and friends always managed to make it over to the BARTCON paddock for dinner and drinks to wind down after race day and needless to say we all became great friends very quickly. Ryne was always around to help anyone around him at race weekend that needed help so when he came to me about the possibility of riding out of the BARTCON Racing paddock it was an instant YES !
As most of you know, BARTCON Racing along with one of our primary sponsors Coastal Neurosurgery & Spine are very much involved with raising awareness along with much needed funds for The Wounded Warrior Project and what a lot of you may not know is that Corporal Ryne Snooks himself is a Wounded Warrior as he was injured in Afghanistan in May of 2011 on his first tour and returned to Afghanistan to do his second tour in April of 2012. I know that I am speaking for the entire BARTCON Racing team when I say, “Thank You Ryne for your services to our great country and it is an even greater honor to welcome you to BARTCON Racing.”
