Race-1 takes pride in making our accumulated information available to the crate population, including racers that have no intention of ever being one of our customers.

Shortly after the adoption of the GM crate engine by Race-1, we began to concentrate fully on the concept of crate racing and set aside our other ventures with the performance world. Race-1 takes pride in making our accumulated information available to the crate population, including racers that have no intention of ever being one of our customers.

We feel that the success of GM crate racing as a whole will be the success of Race-1 in the end and that is why we offer our advice and help to anyone - no matter where they purchase their engine, get it rebuilt or purchase their bolt-on accessories.

Race-1 has done testing for fuel companies, header manufacturers, carburetor manufacturers, Chevrolet Performance company as well as private individuals. All of that information and much more is available to anyone.

Race-1 is a fully authorized Repair/Rebuild facility for most sanctions.
