WHERE DOES THE "CHAlEW" nAME COME fROM?

Needless to say, Charles Lewandoski Performance would be a mouthful to try to say and even worse to try and spell when searching for the company.  ChaLew came from a childhood nickname Charles always had growing up. It came from using the first three letters of his first name and first three of his last name.From the nickname starting in the late 90’s to using it through his entire racing career, the nickname just kind of stuck.

we are racers helping racers

in june 2020, we sadly lost Donald Lewandoski

Donald was Charles’s major influence in starting his own business. From childhood, Charles was able to learn how to build a business by watching Donald run his excavation company in Connecticut. Donald and Charles also shared a passion for motorsports. From that shared passion and knowledge, Charles was able to start ChaLew Performance.
