Chevrolet Performance remains Official Crate Engine of USMTS in 2024



Officials from Chevrolet Performance and the United States Modified Touring Series will continue their partnership in 2024 and through the end of the 2025 racing season.

Continuing as the Official Crate Engine of the USMTS, Chevrolet Performance will once again be supporting racers in the Summit USMTS National Championship presented by RacinDirt by awarding a new high-performance CT525 crate engine. Engines will be shipped directly to local dealers for individual fulfillment.

Along with padding the points funds for all USMTS drivers, Chevrolet Performance launched a new tradition in 2023 as the company became the presenting sponsor of the Featherlite Fall Jamboree held at the Deer Creek Speedway in Spring Valley, Minn., through the 2025 event as well.

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.
