Federal-Mogul Corporation : Tony Stewart Gets First Win of Year, Crew Chief
Steve Addington Named Top MOOG® 'Problem Solver' at Dover
Southfield, Michigan, June 4, 2013.Tony Stewart broke a 30-race winless streak
and his crew chief, Steve Addington, capped the post-race celebration by being
named Federal-Mogul's (NASDAQ: FDML) MOOG^® Steering and Suspension "Problem
Solver of the Race" following Sunday's FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks
NASCAR^® Sprint Cup contest on the "Monster Mile" of Dover (Del.)
Addington's MOOG Problem Solver award came after the No. 14 Code 3
Associates/Mobil 1 Chevrolet SS posted the greatest improvement in average lap
time (0.058 seconds) over the second half of the race while finishing on the
lead lap. He earned five weekly MOOG awards in 2012 to win the prestigious
$100,000 MOOG "Problem Solver of the Year" Award.
"Tony and Steve have made a lot of progress in the past two weeks, and Steve
and the Stewart-Hass crew worked wonders with the 14 car between Friday and
Sunday," said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim Nelson. "The MOOG Problem
Solver awards are all about the fine-tuning that takes place on pit road
before and during each race, and Steve and his team just never gave up - they
kept improving the car's handling so Tony could be in a good position during
the closing laps."
In a good position he was, with the MOOG-equipped Chevrolet SS running third
when NASCAR officials assessed a pass-through penalty to race leader Jimmie
Johnson (No. 48 Chevrolet) with just 19 laps remaining. Stewart, who started
22^nd, immediately challenged the new leader, Juan Pablo Montoya (No. 42
Chevrolet), and eventually gained the advantage from the outside lane with
three laps to go.
"It came down to two great drivers battling head to head for 19 miles, with
the win ultimately going to the one with the better-handling car," Nelson
