Rob Geiger

Rob Geiger

Senior Editor

Rob Geiger founded Geiger Media Global in 1997 and immediately began handling the PR activities of the Pennzoil Racing account, headed by drag racing legend Eddie Hill. The company grew quickly with the addition of JEGS High Performance, a relationship that continues to this day, and several other NHRA race teams. Geiger was then offered and accepted a position with NHRA, creating all of the content for NHRA.com, keeping all of the statistics for the series and writing daily race recaps for the Associated Press. All the while, Geiger and his growing team maintained a select group of clients requiring PR and media relations, adding key race teams to the equation when the timing was right. An expansion into complete sponsorship management in drag racing and several other forms of powersports came next when lead client GEICO asked for help with its Supercross, Motocross, Endurocross, Road Racing and Professional Angling entities. Since then, Geiger Media Global has solidified its gold standard reputation in the industry with world-class media and public relations, productive sponsorship management, a highly trained staff of experts and extensive investment in cutting-edge technology while maintaining competitive rates and personal service. An honor graduate of the University of Houston, Geiger is an award-winning published author who lives in Texas.

Richard Brady

Richard Brady

Senior Editor

As a former National Dragster and divisional event photographer, Richard Brady has traveled the country from one end to the other in the search for that perfect photograph. Beginning taking photographs as a 12-year old in 1957, Brady’s photography skills have been in demand throughout the years. Now retired and living in the wide open spaces of Wyoming, he has also turned his camera toward outdoor scenery, but still prefers the smell of nitro, burnouts and the sounds of engines.

John DiBartolomeo

John DiBartolomeo

Editorial Director

An active competitor in the sportsman/bracket racing ranks, John DiBartolomeo was in fact the very first winner of what is now the NHRA Summit Bracket Finals back in 1976. The eventual multi-time NHRA national, divisional and bracket racing event winner has parlayed his knowledge of the sport and his business acumen in bringing to light stories which have an extreme relevance to both readers and advertisers alike.
