Matt Torney

Drivers Bio: 
Based in Elizabeth CO, Draco Motorsports is a father and son, combat-veteran owned race team specializing in U4 off-road competition. We do all fabrication, mechanicals, and paint in-house. 2019 was our rookie year in racing, competing at the Dirt Riot series where we took a few podium spots and even won a regional race in pro-UTV class. We raced KOH 2020 UTV and battled all the way to mile marker 129 before breakages and the clock stopped us at Wrecking Ball. We competed numerous west-coast U4 races and Nationals for 2020. KOH 2021 ended abruptly with a G-out on lap 1 in the desert, which sent us cartwheeling across the Johnson Valley desert. Raced the entire Northern series in U4 2021 with a 7th place Nationals finish and top ten National points. Matt (dad) Torney has been immersed in rock crawling and powersports his entire life- the Draco Motorsports namesake is the ultimate culmination of such activities. As a USAF officer and military pilot, Matt flew F-16C fighter jets before operating small Special Operations’ aircraft for US SOCOM, where he deployed nine times around the world in support of SOF operators. As a callsign for these missions, “Draco” was recognized as a ‘guardian angel’ for our elite SOF teams: Draco owned the battlefield and thus, served as a perfect name for our race team. Greg, son and co-driver, has been surrounded by power-sports, engines, and fabrication his whole life. Growing up around dirt bikes and 4×4 vehicles, he fell in love with the ability to ‘go fast’ and test the limits of all kinds of anything! He is a Civil Engineer for CO DOT. Greg drives the #428 X3 in U4. For 2022, we will be racing our new Tribe-16 4400 truck at KOH and the entire Northern series. We couldn’t be here without our incredible sponsors. Sedona Tire and Wheel, PRP, Warn, HCR Racing, RCV Performance, SuperATV, Mishimoto, Liqui Moly, KC Hilites, Rugged Radios, and Trinity Racing are a phenomenal group of companies that have helped us get to where we are today.
