Drew, President of the Pro Sportsman Association, an organization dedicated to promoting Top Alcohol Dragster and Funny Car racing, has come a long way since the early 1980s, when he twisted wrenches for no-nonsense Fred Mandoline, whose longstanding zero-tolerance policy on dragstrip dumbassery is legendary.

Long before he was contending for NHRA event titles, Drew was crewing, driving, and organizing UDRA events across the Midwest. Ray basically grew up match racing, and  ran all over the place – Norwalk, Ohio; Martin, Mich.; Xenia, Ohio; Detroit Dragway; Quaker City; Cordova, Ill.; Morocco, Ind. – even some eighth-mile tracks.

Ray made his first runs in the fall of 1991 at the Great Lakes Dragaway in Union Grove, Wis. From 1994 to 2008 he was a co-owner of the track, and that decade and a half of experience has been invaluable in his current role with the Pro Sportsman Association. He understands what it takes to run a track, but he also knows what it's like to be a racer.

As a racer, Drew competed on the UDRA circuit, then moved up to IHRA competition, and then, five years ago, to NHRA. When he's not racing, Drew is consumed by his business, KW Manufacturing, a metal-fabrication and CNC shop in suburban Milwaukee that builds products for machinery and automation equipment.
