With the army of ProCharger supercharged racers growing daily, and more events in which our racers participate also expanding rapidly, ProCharger superchargers has expanded and strenghtened our Motorsports Team to show our unrivaled commitment to our racers. Our racer support is not only available by phone (913-338-2886) and email ([email protected]), but also in person at the track for many events!

To keep up with the coast to coast events all year we have brought together a rockstar staff of motorsports guru’s from nearly every form of racing and expertise. This blog will bring you up to speed with some of these guys you might run into at the track, as well as list out some of the events we have already added to the 2018 calendar.

NICK BASTIAOAfter graduation from SAM in Houston 21 years ago, Nick set his sights on a career dedicated to competing at the top. From cylinder head development with NASCAR to piloting a record-setting Top Alcohol funny car and being a championship crew chief in the NHRA, Nick has a proven track record of accomplishing that goal from two decades ago.  Taking that same dedication, Nick will now be helping out ProCharger supercharger customers on and off the track. Nick is based out of ProCharger’s new California office near Sonoma Raceway, but will be traveling to events nationwide.
TYLER VANLANTWith a degree in mechanical engineering, Tyler has spent 16 years working with airflow/cyl head development and precision data collection. His level of detail has helped him produce winning results on the race track, and also in product development here at ProCharger. For the last 5 years, Tyler has aided in the design elements that keep our ProCharger supercharged racers at the top.
WALT SIPPPacking 4 national championships, 30 national event wins, and multiple track records, it’s safe to say Walt knows his way around a track. Yet beyond the track, Walt also has 11 years of working here at ProCharger, sacked onto the 26 years of racing experience. In 1996 Walt first became a ProCharger supercharger customer, with a system on his fox body Mustang.
SERGIO SHIFMANFor 16 years, ProCharger customers have relied on Serigo’s product experience in all forms of racing from Automotive, Motorcycle and even Marine. His 28 years of drag racing experience came in handy as he was the lead crew chief on the Super Chevy project Nova, which kick started the “blow through” carburation movement we see today. Beyond the dragstrip, Sergio also is heavily involved in ProCharger V-twin efforts as well.
PHILLIP VANBUSKIRKEven though Phillip is one of the younger guys on the team, he brings over a decade and a half of working in the automotive aftermarket industry to the table (or track). With 15 years of racing experience, combined with the technical knowledge from the racing wheel industry and performance engine building scene, Phillip is now placing the same level dedication now into forced induction.
