From the ranch to the racetrack, TKO Motorsports makes the impossible possible and thrives on perfection.
TKO Motorsports LLC was established in 2008 by president Dave Traitel. With a background in ranching, Dave knows the value of hard work and has the tenacity and drive to be an innovator in the motorsports and boating industries. During slow seasons on the ranch, Dave built extreme street cars and boats. For 12 years, Dave competed in several types of boat racing. After 25 years, Dave sold Pinenut Ranch Land & Cattle Company to pursue his dream of racing in all types of motorsports.
Today, TKO Motorsports is focused on engineering street legal driving machines that are track proven in the harshest conditions. Coming from a great history of racing pedigree of all types – from road course, drag racing, to offshore boat racing – TKO makes the impossible possible.
