Racing Brings A Family

Closer Together

Join our group on Facebook or Instagram and keep up to date with the drag scene.

Atv drag racing is a sport that brings family and friends closer together. In 2012 our family lost someone very special to us. Tim's dad Lucian "Sonny" Ryle, was diagnosed with cancer. In 6 short months he lost his battle. Our family was lost without him. We didn't know where to go from there. It wasn't until we had attended our local race track for an Atv dirt drag race. We found out through friends of ours about KOI Drag Racing organization. The following year we started our first dirt racing season with KOI. What started out Tim Ryle (Dad) had our son Shawn Ryle racing on Tim's Yamaha 450 yfz. It wasn't long after that Shawn had his own 450 Honda. We looked forward to the weekends and getting race ready. I then started taking photos of both of them at the races and they couldn't wait to see the photos. We then had our son Luke Ryle and daughter Miranda Ryle coming to the track to cheer on dad and brother. This sport has brought our family so much closer again and we knew that Sonny would always be watching over us. We have so many memories of racing and we want to thank the KOI organization for all that they do! We have met some great people racing and there is something special about being a part of a race family.
