Federal-Mogul Corporation : Jamie McMurray Crew Chief Kevin Manion Earns MOOG®
'Problem Solver' Award at Kentucky Speedway
Southfield, Michigan, July 1, 2013.Kevin Manion, crew chief for Jamie McMurray
and the MOOG^® Steering and Suspension-equipped No. 1 Hellmann's Chevrolet SS,
received Federal-Mogul's (NASDAQ: FDML) MOOG "Problem Solver of the Race"
Award after McMurray picked up 22 positions to finish second in Sunday's
Quaker State 400 NASCAR^® Sprint Cup race at Kentucky Speedway.
Manion's MOOG Problem Solver award - his second of 2013 - came after the No. 1
car improved by a race-best 0.167-seconds per lap over the second half of
racing while finishing on the lead lap. The race was originally scheduled for
Saturday night but rain forced a noon start on Sunday.
"Today was a real challenge for crew chiefs, who hadn't been able to work on
their cars since Friday and had set up their steering and suspension systems
for night racing. Kevin did an excellent job of quickly dialing in their
MOOG-equipped chassis and Jamie was able to stay out of trouble while steadily
advancing through the field," said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim
Manion called for a series of track bar and wedge adjustments during the first
half of the race, enabling McMurray to consistently run in the top 15 through
lap 150. The 1 car was running in the top 10 with 50 laps remaining and had
advanced to third with just over 10 laps to go. McMurray outdueled Clint
Bowyer (No. 15 Toyota) for second place on Lap 264 but ran out of time before
he could reel in the leader. The Earnhardt-Ganassi Racing-owned team improved
from 21^st to 19^th in Sprint Cup points.
