OUR STORY

ChaLew Performance is owned and operated by stockcar veteran driver Charles Lewandoski. Growing up driving family owned race cars, Charles understood the importance of purchasing high quality components while trying to minimize cost. After driving in the NASCAR Camping World Truck series and Xfinity series, Charles realized the need for new and used parts options for racers like himself. ChaLew Performance is based in the heart of American motorsports, Mooresville, North Carolina.

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.
