The Good News Is... Little racer, big heart

By Kristen Hampton - bio l email    

YORK, SC (WBTV) - Ray Beebe is an 11 year old boy who's always had a passion for racing.

A little more than a year ago, Ray got behind the wheel of a Bandolero Bandit and hasn't stopped since.

Ray is ranked 4th in the nation among Bandit drivers his own age. He had a chance last night to take home the "600 Series" Championship, but a jam up ended him up in second place.

Ray already has his sights set on next year. He's got big dreams of landing a sponsorship.
