Brasstown, NC driver Ray Cook began his career in motorsports racing 4-cylinder cars in pony classes, moved up to super late models following the Hav-a-Tampa series and pretty soon realized he'd like to make a career out of the sport of racing. "Like so many others, I started out racing as a hobby, and over time made a career of it," states Cook. "Laying groundwork for the future, I then decided to form my own series so that one day when I pass the torch to other racers, I can still actively participate in the sport."
Ray is on the gas more than ever with 68 races under his belt for the 2011 season, and promotion for 27 more.

For now though, Ray is on the gas more than ever with 68 races under his belt for the 2011 season, and promotion for 27 more. He racked up eight wins, numerous 2nd places and his Dirt Late Model Series the Schaffer Oil Southern Nationals was a huge success.

His eighth feature win of the 2011 campaign in his season finale was on November 19 at the historic Cleveland Speedway in Cleveland, Tennessee. During Southern All-stars Dirt Racing Series (SAS) qualifying, Ray laid down the second quickest lap, which put him on the outside of the front row for the 50-lap "Gobbler." The popular driver known as the "Tarheel Tiger" grabbed the top spot at the drop of the green flag and held the point for the entire distance. At the end of fifty circuits, Ray found himself crossing underneath the checkers ahead of Jonathan Davenport, Dale McDowell, Brian Reese, and Shane Clanton to pocket the $5,000 winner's purse.

Hoping to start the 2012 season the same way he ended it in 2011, he and the D&R Motorsports team are heading to the Ice Bowl at the Talladega Short Track in Eastaboga, Alabama for the Jan 7-8 kick off of the year. Best of luck guys, and keep those wins coming. As a K&N partner for more than 15 years, we love hearing all of your success stories.
