President & Driver
David Traitel began his racing career in off-shore boat racing and drag racing. David specialized in Apache Powerboats. Originally a rancher, David established TKO Motorsports in 2008 with the desire to build a race team. TKO Motorsports was created to make the impossible possible by building ultimate driving machines that are track engineered and tested in the harshest conditions.
