|Birth name||Raymond Austin|
|Birth date||November 1957|
Unlike his older brother Vern, Ray preferred working with his hands to reading. He built tree houses, took things apart to see how they worked, and helped out his father in the garage and the shop.
Ray and Mel built a repair shop near the Bradford Speedway. He is fairly busy at car repairs, as well as managing the track which was handed over to him.
He’s still a racer, and his two sons, Chuck and Will are as well.BR2-27
