WELCOME TO THE BRP MODIFIED TOUR


It is with heavy hearts that we have to say goodbye to Bob Ryder. He was a dirt car racing crew chief, friend and dedicated to the BRP Modified Tour for many years who has passed away too early in his life. Bob was the son of Rick Ryder who we lost in May 2022. We want to send our love, thoughts and prayers to his fiancée Amber, her son and the rest of the Ryder family. Rest in Peace Bob.
