Southfield, Michigan, April 23, 2013.Jamie McMurray started 14(th), was knocked
to the back of the field and then rallied for an impressive seventh-place finish
in Sunday's STP 400 NASCAR(®) Sprint Cup contest at Kansas Speedway. Following
the race, McMurray's crew chief, Kevin Manion, was selected as MOOG(®) Steering
and Suspension "Problem Solver of the Race" for directing the No. 1 McDonald's
Chevrolet team's comeback.
Presented by global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Corporation
(NASDAQ: FDML), the MOOG Problem Solver of the Race Award is presented following
each Sprint Cup event 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. The MOOG-equipped No. 1 Chevrolet SS was tops at Kansas with a 0.294-second
the final 134 laps.
"Jamie, Kevin and the Earnhardt Ganassi team are putting together a really solid
season," said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim Nelson. "They had a little
bad luck out there in the first half but Kevin nailed their chassis setup, which
gave Jamie the speed and handling he needed to drive back into the top 10."
McMurray was running just outside the lead pack when he was tapped from behind
and nearly lost control on a Lap 115 restart. The No. 1 fell back to 35(th) but
immediately began its journey forward thanks to excellent steering response and
tire grip. The team has three top 10 finishes on the season and improved one
spot, to 11(th), in Sprint Cup points.
