Chevrolet Performance remains Official Crate Engine of USMTS


Officials from the United States Modified Touring Series and Chevrolet Performance are continuing their partnership through the 2022 racing season.

The Official Crate Engine of the USMTS since 2017, 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.

2022 season blasts off March 3-5: The Summit USMTS Modifieds will invade the Rocket Raceway Park in Petty, Texas, on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 3-5, for the 12th Annual USMTS Texas Spring Nationals.

The track opened in 2015 and hosted the USMTS on June 25 for the first and only visit here by the series.

Philip Houston was the winner that night. Formerly known as 82 Speedway, the fast quarter-mile dirt oval will also welcome USRA Stock Cars, USRA Limited Mods and USRA Factory Stocks all three nights.

The Rocket Raceway Park is a wide, sweeping 1/4-mile high-banked dirt oval and the facility holds 3,400 spectators in its elevated grandstands which offer superb viewing from any seat.

The venue can be found in Lamar County—about 15 minutes west of Paris and 25 minutes east of Bonham. The track’s physical location is 16369 US Hwy 82, Petty, TX 75470.
