Ray Tapp


Ray Tapp drives the #16 Renagade Class car.  His home track is Carolina Speedway but he can also be found racing at Cherokee Super Speedway.  He lives in Mt. Holly, NC.

Team members helping Ray are:  Big Ronald Pope, Little Ronald "Rabbit" Pope, Steven Newsome, Rick Painter.

Ray started racing in 2005 in the Renagade Class at Carolina Speedway because it's in his blood.  His Father raced back in the '70's, '80's and '90's.  Career highlights include finishing his first race where he started 12 out of 19.  It was the best time in the world.

The thrill of racing for Ray is getting dirty having fun.  His most exciting racing moment was hitting the turn 4 wall wide open head on....that was very exciting!  He's most proud of clean driving and most of the time that he starts, he finishes with only 2 out of 70 races missing the end.

Ray's racing hero is Larry Tapp #16.

Of racing, Ray says, "That it's fun, it takes money and bring your friends out to see for themselves!".
