Federal-Mogul Corporation : Jamie McMurray Crew Chief Kevin Manion Earns MOOG®
'Problem Solver' Honors at Kansas Speedway
Southfield, Michigan, April 23, 2013.Jamie McMurray started 14^th, was knocked
to the back of the field and then rallied for an impressive seventh-place
finish in Sunday's STP 400 NASCAR^® Sprint Cup contest at Kansas Speedway.
Following the race, McMurray's crew chief, Kevin Manion, was selected as
MOOG^® Steering and Suspension "Problem Solver of the Race" for directing the
No. 1 McDonald's Chevrolet team's comeback.
Presented by global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Corporation
(NASDAQ: FDML), the MOOG Problem Solver of the Race Award is presented
following each Sprint Cup event to the crew chief whose car posts the greatest
improvement in average lap time over the second half of the race while
finishing on the lead lap. The MOOG-equipped No. 1 Chevrolet SS was tops at
Kansas with a 0.294-second improvement over the final 134 laps.
"Jamie, Kevin and the Earnhardt Ganassi team are putting together a really
solid season," said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim Nelson. "They had a
little bad luck out there in the first half but Kevin nailed their chassis
setup, which gave Jamie the speed and handling he needed to drive back into
the top 10."
McMurray was running just outside the lead pack when he was tapped from behind
and nearly lost control on a Lap 115 restart. The No. 1 fell back to 35^th but
immediately began its journey forward thanks to excellent steering response
and tire grip. The team has three top 10 finishes on the season and improved
one spot, to 11^th, in Sprint Cup points.
