Shift Up Now is proud to announce that Callies Performance Products has pledged its support by joining as a Corporate Member, funding travel grants for three Shift Up Now Athletes and sponsoring five annual Shift Up Now memberships for young, up-and-coming racers.
Callies Performance Products began manufacturing high performance crankshafts in 1989. With many years of engineering and employee experience, Callies has grown to be the industry leader for innovative product design. Headquartered in Fostoria, Ohio, the company takes pride in staying ahead of the competition with the latest high-tech design and manufacturing advantages.
Callies is entering its second year of partnership with Shift Up Now and will be the first to sponsor memberships for aspiring racers, giving them access to online webinars, discounts and more tools to help them succeed. Instead of randomly giving away free memberships, Shift Up Now and Callies have collaborated to create a unique competition to help young racers learn to interact with potential sponsors.
Full terms and conditions can be found HERE and racers can submit their racing resumes to Info@ShiftUpNow.com. The deadline to submit entries is Friday, April 1st at 12 a.m. ET. Winners will be announced on Wednesday April 13th.
The three travel grants will cover competition travel costs for three Shift Up Now Athletes who use Callies Performance Products in their race cars during the 2022 season. Recipients have already raised the necessary funds to compete and travel grants allow sponsorship funds to be spent on tools for on-track success, as opposed to travel expenses.
“It is an honor to have Callies’ support, on and off the track,” said Shift Up Now Athlete Michele Abbate. “My first unlimited LS-based engine build was a few years ago with my street Camaro, with which we did a YouTube series called ‘Project GrrMaro.’ Our goal was big power with a naturally-aspirated application and our number one choice was a Callies crankshaft.
“Beyond their superior aftermarket components, great customer service and innovative design, the heart of their business is to support the industry and motorsports. Their commitment to women in motorsport by partnering with Shift Up Now shows that they are leading by example.”
Breann Fredritz, Marketing Director at Callies Performance Products added, “We are really excited to partner with Shift Up Now and support the female athletes in our industry, along with spreading the word about all the incredible resources that Shift Up Now has to offer.”
The 2022 racing season is already underway for Shift Up Now Athletes. Fans and supporters can follow along with exclusive updates and access by becoming an official member. More information is available on the About Us Page.
