Exhibition drag racers partner with the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF): Go fast & do good.

Few exhibitions create more buzz and excitement than 40-foot flames erupting from the rear of a jet powered dragster truck. The driving force behind the jet-powered NHRA/IHRA exhibition drag racing vehicle “Dragon’s Fyre” is Dave Modder. As owner/driver and volunteer firefighter for the Town of Randall, WI Fire Dept., this partnership has a high emotional connection.

“Those of us in the fire service know how important the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation is,” said Modder. “For the families of firefighters who have made the ultimate sacrifice, the NFFF provides critical financial assistance as well as a host of other services. Those not in the Fire Service probably don’t know who or what the foundation does. It’s our mission to bring awareness of the group’s activities to a much wider audience through drag racing events, air shows, car shows and firefighter-related events. What this foundation does is very important to me personally, since I’m an active firefighter. We’re very excited and eager to bring those activities into the public eye.


The proposal to NFFF was received with open arms. Chief Ron Siarnicki, the foundation’s executive director, has high accolades to give when it comes to this new way that the group will be represented. 

“The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation appreciates Dragon’s Fyre Jet Truck’s commitment to our mission to honor the fallen, offer support to their families and help reduce firefighter line-of-duty injuries and deaths each year,” said Siarnicki. “The generous support provided through this partnership will help the foundation continue providing valuable resources to the survivors of the fallen and the fire service.”
