Online Voting Now Open For $50,000 Grand-Prize Champion® Racing Sponsorship









SOUTHFIELD, Mich., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Five grassroots racing teams have each already won $10,000 (USD) Champion® racing sponsorships in Federal-Mogul's (NASDAQ: FDML) "Search for a Champion" video contest. But the grand-prize $50,000 sponsorship remains, and consumers can help determine the winner by voting for their favorite video entries at www.AlwaysaChampion.com.

The final phase of the online voting is open now through March 25, with the $50,000 sponsorship recipient being announced April 2 by NASCAR® Sprint Cup driver and Champion spokesperson Kevin Harvick. Consumers who register and vote at www.AlwaysaChampion.com also will earn chances to win a free Champion t-shirt and an autographed Kevin Harvick poster.

The $50,000 grand prize sponsorship can be won by any of the five finalists – Jim Cebulski, Channahon, Ill.; Chad Crawford, Warrenton, Mo.; the Michalek Brothers, Louisville, Ohio; Erik Miller, Cumberland, Md.; or Kyle Sacket, Gilmanton Iron Works, N.H. – based on online votes as well as input from Champion and Harvick. The finalists were selected from more than 330 entrants who produced exciting videos demonstrating their racing drive and commitment, and describing how they would use a Champion sponsorship to dominate the action in any of five engine-driven racing categories.

"We had over 130,000 votes in the first round and we're hoping to exceed that total as consumers vote for the grand-prize winner," Harvick said. "A $50,000 sponsorship is huge and a dream come true for any talented grassroots or semi-professional racer. Every racer can look back and identify the key sponsorship opportunity that helped them reach their goal. It would have been a big advantage for me early in my career when I was trying to make the jump from go-kart racing. The Champion team at Federal-Mogul is showing the world that they're serious about powering the next generation of racing superstars."

The Champion brand and iconic bow tie logo can be seen in virtually every form of racing worldwide. It now represents a broad portfolio of advanced products, including globally respected Champion spark plugs; Champion oil, air and cabin air filters; Champion wiper blades; and Champion performance additives for the automotive and lawn and garden markets.
