Southfield, Michigan, January 4, 2013.Innovative Champion(®) Copper Plus(®)
spark plugs from Federal-Mogul (NASDAQ: FDML) are once again powering three of
the fastest sleds in the popular AMSOIL Championship Snocross Series. The
series, which brings together the world's finest professional and amateur
competitors, comprises eight weekends of racing at venues in Michigan,
Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. Races are
broadcast by CBS Sports.

For the third consecutive year, Champion plugs will power the three Polaris
sleds campaigned by Judnick Motorsports in the Pro Open and Pro Lite classes.
Veteran Judnick racers Ross Martin (Bib 837), James Johnstad (Bib 154) and Mike
Bauer (Bib 717) will display the iconic red-and-black Champion bow tie logo as
they compete for series titles. Martin dominated the Pro Open class in 2011 and
second in 2012. Johnstad finished fifth in Pro Lite last year. Each of the Judnick Polaris sleds is equipped with Champion Copper Plus spark plugs #RN57YCC, the same plugs available through leading snowmobile parts dealers. Champion plugs are engineered to provide maximum power, sure starts and ultra-fast throttle response through an innovative firing-end design, thin-wire center electrode and increased bore clearance between the shell and core nose. In addition to automotive applications, Federal-Mogul offers Champion plugs for virtually every popular model of snowmobile, motorcycle, all-terrain vehicle and personal watercraft. "Snocross racers are on and off the throttle hundreds of times during an event and they demand virtually instantaneous response and maximum power, which is why many leading professional and amateur teams choose Champion," said Champion Product Manager Michael Kollenberg.
