We have a small dedicated staff here at CSI. Everyone is a racer and that’s just how we like it. Quality and customer satisfaction are our main goals. We want to win races as badly as you do, that is why we put in the extra effort to make sure every piece that leaves our factory exceeds our expectations.
Garrett Andrews : Brings a wealth of knowledge to the team. He has been employed as a shock engineer by several top teams in Nascar and Indy Car. His true love is dirt track racing that is why he started CSI back in 2009. Garrett designs and assembles all of the new shocks at CSI. He is constantly burning the mid-night oil at the shop working on the next winning valving combination. Garrett’s racing career is limited to Mountain Bikes and RC Cars these days.
Brent Beauchamp: Has been with CSI since the beginning. Brent spent several years under the guidance of Garrett, learning all of the inner working of our shocks. He now handles most of the repair work. Brent is also a full time student at IUPUI studying communications and marketing. He is putting his schooling to the good use keeping our website, Facebook and Twitter accounts up to date. Brent won the Track Championship at Lincoln Park Speedway last season driving for Jeff Olsen, he will once again pilot Olsen’s 34 sprinter around Indiana this summer.
A.J. Hopkins: Has been with us for 2 years now. A.J. builds all the sub assemblies for new shocks and assists with tear down and inspection of shocks for repair. A.J. had a break out year in 2012 winning Gas City Speedways Rookie of the Year Award. He will be back behind the wheel of the Roy Jackson 42G this summer racing all over the midwest.
Jim LeConte: Has worked in the racing industry the majority of his life. Jim has a true passion for racing, and has some great stories about spring car racing in the 70′s and 80′s with guys like Doug Wolfgang and Frankie Kerr. He keeps the shop running smooth by managing our inventory and shock build schedule.
Jonathan Thomas: Grew up in a racing family. Jonathan puts the finishing touches on the shocks before they go out the door. He is the main man responsible for keeping our shop in tip top shape. Jonathan also assemblies shock adjuster cables, inflation tools and other CSI products.
Brees: Keeps us all entertained. He is our lovable golden doodle puppy named after Garrett’s favorite football player Drew Brees. Brees is our newest team member, he takes the place our our long time shop dog Rocky. Rocky was the best friend a guy could ever ask for and we greatly miss him.
