      Former F2000 driver. Ran very well in F2000 oval competition. A good, young talent. Running for, among others, Dave Conti (who had rbm at Indy a couple of years ago) in IPS.

        Thanks,
        When he qualified for the IPS pole 3/4 of second faster that Cory Witherwill I wondered where he had come from.

          Looks to me like he's fresh meat for Jewls.

            FF2000 front runner and SRII Grand-Am champ from a few years ago, if I recall. Maybe, he wasn't Champion, but he did win a lot of races.

              Ryan Hampton is good talented young american.


              Ho hum on his way to the IRL.

              Too bad CARTel dont have him.

              I watched this guy at Disney world and Phoenix a few years back and this guy is the real deal. VERY Talented, very good on the ovals, would bea bright star in the league with the proper car.

                He better be 3/4 of a second faster than Witherill. The reviews on Ryan were mixed. Judging by past results he probably couldn't cut it in CART anyway (Not the best Road Racer).

                  For his first IPS race, he seems to be doing a pretty good job against some oval guys on a drivers track. Makes you really question the talent (though not the names) that are currently in the IPS.

                    Not his first Pro Series race Badger. Pay attention grasshopper and you may learn something.

                      Well I don't care who he is. At one time in the race (before the 2nd caution) he had a SIX second lead over the field. However, that's his HOME track. He's run over 40 races there so he knows that track VERY well.


                      Sammich: The reason "...he couldn't cut it in CART anyway." is because he knows how to PASS, he doesn't like parades.

                      BADGER: I don't question the talent, especially for it's FIRST YEAR in existence. Don't be surprised if you see SEVERAL T/A teams make the move as well. It's cheaper to run the IPS. Secondly, as I said....this kid's got over 40 races at that track so I'm sure he's well aware of EVERY nuance in that track.
                      But that's just my opinion!

                        IIRC, Foyt gave this guy a test a couple years back.

                          I was just look at past performances on road courses. I'm not going to use facts to cloud my judgement.

                            Are you sure about that being his home track jetdoc? Hampton is another Phoenix guy if I recall. The driver of the Budweiser car, Curtis Francois, is from St. Louis and has a ton of experience there. Just not on the oval.

                              You're right gofast. I retract that previous post regarding his experience at Gateway, however I stand by the rest.

                              But that's just my opinion!
