USMTS, Chevrolet Performance Extend Partnership Through 2022

GRAND BLANC, Michigan (February 17)--Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series and Chevrolet Performance have inked a new three-year deal that will extend the partnership between the two companies through the end of 2022.

Continuing as the Official Crate Engine of the USMTS, Chevrolet Performance will once again award a new high-performance CT525 crate engine to a Summit USMTS National Championship fueled by Casey's competitor at the season-ending awards banquet.

The deep-breathing, high-revving CT525 6.2L crate engine (Part No. 19418211) is upgraded with forged aluminum pistons designed to support its performance and enhance its durability. It is based on the LS engine family and delivers serious power for serious racing series.

The CT525 is based on the 6.2L LS3 and adapted to circle track racing with a carbureted intake manifold, a high-lift roller camshaft, six-quart racing oil pan and more.

Chevrolet Performance fuels the passions of enthusiasts with factory-engineered and fully assembled crate engines, engine parts and vehicle accessories.

Driven by the spirit of American ingenuity, Chevrolet is dedicated to challenging the limits of what's possible in automotive design and engineering today, tomorrow and for years to come.

Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is one of the world's largest automotive brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.5 million cars and trucks a year. Chevrolet offers a comprehensive line of vehicles that feature spirited performance, expressive design, thoughtful technology, high quality and value.
