Longtime motorsports enthusiast Rodin Younessi owns a series of high-volume dealerships across the country.
Rodin Younessi has long held a passion for motorsports, entering many prestigious international racing competitions for years and investing in some of the most high-volume dealerships in the country. He’s competed in the U.S. F2000 National Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans among other top competitions, and he was the first American to pilot the McLaren 12C GT3 during the Blancpain Endurance Series.
Taking his love of motorsports even further, Rodin Younessi purchased a Lamborghini dealership in native South Florida as well as seven Harley-Davidson dealerships across the country. There, he maintains extensive inventories of some of the most highly-prized vehicles on the road today.
As a dealership owner, Rodin Younessi is careful to dedicate time and resources to local communities and frequently uses his dealerships as event spaces for various charities. For instance, at his Space Coast Harley-Davidson location, he hosted a SOAKed for Autism event and raised both awareness of autism and monetary donations for the SOAK (Supporting Our ASD Kids, Inc.) organization. Through the event, representatives from SOAK shared their mission with local community members and helped gain new funding and spread awareness in the area.
He’s also donated vehicles from his own fleet to either support charity auctions or else to gift to local community organizations. Rodin Younessi and the specialized team at his Space Coast Harley-Davidson recently customized one of their motorcycles for donation to the law enforcement in their area. Specially designed for the police agency, the retrofitted motorcycle will be driven alongside the rest of the law enforcement fleet, helping them stop crimes and enforce safety. Apart from regular use in the force, the motorcycle is expected to appear as a static prop at local events and will serve as a focal point in parades and community gatherings around town.
To assist the Susan G. Komen for the Cure of Breast Cancer charity raise funds and awareness for their cause, Rodin Younessi donated one of his brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycles to be used in the organization’s auction. The funds raised during the charity went on to help the Susan G. Komen charity further their research and improve treatment plans for patients suffering from breast cancer in the future. The motorcycle donation from Mr. Younessi was recognized by the chair of the auction, former US Ambassador Nancy Brinker, as one of the highest benefactors of the entire charity, making it a tremendous success for their cause.
Rodin Younessi has found wide success in the motorsports industry, both as a competitive racer and a dealership owner, but he remains cognizant of his local communities and supports them through regular sponsorship and donations.
