Meet Our Team: Dragonfire Racing Founder and President, Todd Romano

May 12, 2010

If you’ve ever wondered about the people behind the Dragonfire Racing brand, this blog post is for you. In fact, today’s post is just the first of many “Meet Our Team” blog entries we’ll be posting from now on. Without getting too longwinded about it, without the people who work here, there’d be no “here.” And here at Dragonfire Racing, we’re fortunate to have an amazing group of employees to profile.

To get us started, meet our founder and president, Todd Romano:

Todd-Romano-DragonefireQ: What compelled you to start Dragonfire Racing?

A: Dragonfire Racing was started out of necessity. The off-road community is filled with talented and opinionated people, and since my opinions and talents were different than the people that were working and developing my racecars, I started Dragonfire. This allowed me to put the success and failures of my racing program on my own shoulders. In 2009 and 2010, vehicles with Dragonfire Racing parts won its division/class in the Lucas Oil Off Road Series, Baja 250, Baja 500, and the Baja 1000. In very short order, we’ve become one of the most recognized builders and designers of race-winning products in the off-road community.

Q: What’s the best part of your job?

A: The best part of my job is knowing that our customers buy from us not on a leap of faith but with confidence. Our customers often tell us that they can immediately see the rewards of their purchase, and know that we have improved their vehicle.

Q: What kind of ATV/UTV do you drive?

A: Fortunately for me, I get to drive all our UTV’s, and each one has its advantages. Our relationship with Team Green Kawasaki has me in a Teryx more often than not, which includes Dragonfire Racing’s Long Travel Suspension and 840 Big Bore Kit.

Q: From Dragonfire’s perspective, what specifically are you most looking forward to over the next 12 to 18 months?

A: We are currently working with Kawasaki on a Dakar Rally program for 2011. Having a Dragonfire-equipped or sponsored vehicle win the Dakar Rally is something a lot of us here at Dragonfire are most looking forward to.

Q: If you could take a week or so off from work and ride ATV/UTVs anywhere in the world, where would you go and whom would you take with you?

A: While it seems like I’m always riding new and different places, there’s nothing quite like the amazing rides one can go on in Utah. My family and I live there now, and each opportunity spent in the mountains is a memory. I hope I don’t alienate any of my friends, but a week with my family, riding trails in my own back yard, sounds like the perfect vacation to me.

Thanks, Todd, for taking the time to share what makes you tick and why you love your job so much. We’ll be back with another Meet Our Team post in a few weeks. Until then, feel free to ask Todd a question of your own by leaving a comment via the Comments link below.
