Federal-Mogul Corporation : Jimmy Fennig, Crew Chief for Carl Edwards and No.
99 Roush Fenway Ford, Named MOOG® 'Problem Solver' at Richmond
Southfield, Michigan, April 28, 2013.The first-year partnership of Carl
Edwards and crew chief Jimmy Fennig continues to flourish, as Edwards and the
No. 99 Geek Squad Ford Fusion picked up their fifth top-10 finish of the year
and Fennig received the prestigious MOOG^® Steering and Suspension "Problem
Solver of the Race" Award in Saturday night's NASCAR^® Toyota Owners 400 at
Richmond (Va.) International Raceway.
The MOOG "Problem Solver" award, presented by global vehicle components
manufacturer Federal-Mogul (NASDAQ: FDML), is presented following each NASCAR
Sprint Cup contest 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. Edwards and Fennig's Roush Fenway Racing-owned Ford, which started
28^th, improved by a race-best 0.220-second per lap to finish sixth at
Richmond. With the finish, Edwards moved up four positions, to second, in
Sprint Cup points.
Fennig was asked by team owner Jack Roush to take charge of the 99 team after
Edwards failed to qualify for last year's Chase for the Sprint Cup, just one
year following his runner-up finish to Tony Stewart in Sprint Cup points.
Edwards had also suffered a 70-race span without a win, but the 33-year-old
driver broke that streak in just his second start with Fennig when the
MOOG-equipped 99 car took the checkered flag at Phoenix.
"Carl has a lot of confidence now that Jimmy is on his pit box, and for good
reason," said Tim Nelson, director of motorsports for Federal-Mogul. "They
already have one win and four top fives in nine starts together and Jimmy
keeps showing that he's among the best when it comes to reading a track and
finding the right setup to move his car toward the front."
