THE STORY BEHIND DPI PERFORMANCE RACING PRODUCTS

“The seed for my racing career was planted over 40 years ago by my father. He brought home a
quarter midget and from that moment on I have been dedicated to the sport of auto racing. In the
early seventies I was developing innovative products along with a racing career that includes 100’s
of short track wins and several championships.”

“Developing products that really work has been the driving force behind the success of DPI.  Every
racer has bought parts that didn’t live up to their expectations or didn’t perform as promised.
Personally, I feel racers design the best products; they know what works!  I have taken the
experiences from my racing career and created a company that puts the racer first.”

Randy Larsen began his driving career in 1985 at the wheel of a 1969 Chevelle Street Stock. After
homing his driving skills in the car for two seasons at Petaluma Speedway, he moved up to the very
popular new IMCA Modifieds. Randy achieved his goal of winning the IMCA Modified Championship in
1992.  It was a hand fought victory; made especially sweet due to the close second place finishes
in previous years for the Northern California driver.

In 1994 Larsen moved from the high banked clay oval at Petaluma, to the paved ovals where he
competed against some of the best drivers in the Bay Area. Randy moved up to the ultra competitive
late model stock cars in 1996, where he competed in the NOR-CAL “Best of the West” Series.  Larsen
had a very successful season, winning at All American Speedway in Roseville and finishing fourth in
season points.  He also won
the prestigious “Rookie of the Year” title and competed in the NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Series
in 1999.


Prior to starting Larsen Racing Products, Randy ran his own automotive shop, Automotive
Specialties, for four years.
Seeing a need for quality performance racing products in the industry, Randy founded Larsen Racing
Products. Starting from the ground up, Randy has successfully owned and operated LRP for over
thirteen years. Randy Larsen caters to the top racing teams locally and nationwide and understands
well the rigors of running at the top like the competitive NASCAR Featherlite Southwest Series.

In 2003, Randy once again had seen need for quality products and wanted to design the best for
racing.  In his search Randy purchased Dan Press Industries to begin manufacturing his own
performance parts. Randy Larsen and Dan Press had a similar vision; they both wanted to develop
products that really lived up to the rac- ers expectations and Randy is accomplishing this vision
everyday with the products he develops today.

A top performer on and off the track, Randy Larsen brings his business and racing expertise to
assist you in
fulfilling all of your performance racing product needs.
