The History of Draime Enterprises, Inc.
David and John Draime grew up around racing. Their father, Russell Draime, began racing in 1952. When David and John were in their teens, they began to do work for people, which included building engines, building race cars, and setting up the cars. By the time they had both finished school, they had a large enough customer base that they were able to work on race cars full time. In 1973 Draime Enterprises was founded. David and John have gone from working in a garage attached to their parents' home to today, working in a 5,700 square foot facility. In 1977 the decision was made that the company would discontinue building their own chassis and specialize in building racing engines.The Draime Racing Team continued throughout the 1970's, racing not only on short tracks all over the North American continent, but also with NASCAR, sitting on the pole at Daytona and winning at Talladega. The team won the Dog Leg 200 in 1977, the final race run at Trenton Speedway in New Jersey. In 1980, David and John realized that they did not have enough time to manage both a growing business and a racing team. They decided to focus their attention on the company and its customers.
