Ryan will drive the No. 54 Chevrolet in Pro Late Model division races at the Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele, Georgia, as well as at the New Smyrna Speedway in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

Ryan's debut with the team will come at SpeedFest 2014, which will be held on Saturday, January 25th and Sunday, January 26th at the Watermelon Capital Speedway. The 125 lap JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour Presented by Chevrolet Performance Pro Late Model is a non-points event. The event will be a four tire only race and will count yellow flag laps for the first 100 laps.

A month later, Ryan will compete at the 48th Annual World Series of Stock Car Racing with Five 4 Motorsports at New Smyrna Speedway for seven nights of competition. The annual event will bring the best of the best from across the country to contend for the week-long championships.

"I have known the Ryans for a while," team owner Hoyt Demis said. "I have known Payton's father, Jackie, for years. We raced against each other in Monroe (Louisiana) when I was on the national Legends scene, so this has been a long-standing relationship. They wanted to try something different as Payton continues to progress and we were in a good position to bring them on to our team.

"I am very honored and excited to have the opportunity to work with Payton."

NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) driver Daniel Hemric has mentored Ryan in the past and is now furthering the mentorship with Ryan and Demis with Five 4 Motorsports for the selected eight-race schedule, and thinks the collaboration will prove to be a winning combination. The 22-year-old Hemric has become a household name among the Legends Car, Modified and Late Model ranks, earning countless accolades over the years including the Legends Million event at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2010.

"We feel that Payton has a lot of talent, and has definitively shown his ability to win races," Hemric said. "Over the past three or four years I have been able to see his progression as a driver, so we are happy to help in the continued evolution of Payton's career."

Five 4 Motorsports is another opportunity to establish Ryan's rise in the motorsports ranks.

"I am excited to go drive for Five 4 Motorsports and continue to work with Daniel. I look forward to the opportunity to learn from his coaching and experience in a Late Model," the 15-year-old driver said. "This is the next step in my career.

It is a solid step in the right direction to demonstrate the potential that I have in motorsports. It will be a strong and productive step for me."

This is the Jonesville, La., native's fifth year of racing. Last year was his third in the Legends division. Ryan had 20 wins last season and 42 top five finishes last season in 53 starts.
