Federal-Mogul Corporation : Ross Martin Tops Pro Class at AMSOIL Championship Snocross Event Champion^® Spark Plug-Powered Polaris Sled Dominates Final at Buffalo River (Minn.) Race Park Southfield, Michigan, March 12, 2013.The Champion^® spark plug-powered Polaris sled piloted by Ross Martin (Bib 837) dominated qualifying action and Saturday's Pro class final in the AMSOIL Championship Snocross Ram Truck National event at Buffalo River (Minn.) Race Park. Martin's win gives him a five-point cushion in second place as Pro racers prepare for the AMSOIL series finale March 15-17 in Lake Geneva, Wis. "Performance Driven(TM)" Champion spark plugs are manufactured by Federal-Mogul (NASDAQ: FDML). Martin was black flagged for a false start in Friday night's Pro final, but he returned to the course with renewed focus and a mission to win on Saturday. He was fast - but not too fast - out of Gate 1 in Saturday's points round and established a three-second lead in the early portion of the race. That edge eventually grew to four seconds before defending event champion Tim Tremblay (Bib 11) could mount a serious challenge. Martin rode a wide sled to hold off Tremblay over the final laps for his second win of the year. "Ross charged off the start and once he took the inside line he never really looked back," said Champion Spark Plug Product Manager Michael Kollenberg. "We are excited and looking for the team to maintain that momentum heading to Lake Geneva." Each Judnick Motorsports Polaris sled is equipped with Champion Copper Plus^® spark plugs (part no. #RN57YCC), the same plugs available through leading snowmobile dealers.
