Southfield, Michigan, January 30, 2013.Ross Martin and his Champion(®) spark
plug-powered Polaris sled earned the silver medal in last weekend's Winter X
Games snocross competition in Aspen, Colo. Martin, who now has four X Games
medals, completed the 16-lap final in 17:21:37, nearly 15 seconds faster than
the next finisher. The Judnick Motorsports-owned sled is equipped with
"Performance Driven(TM)" Champion(®) Copper Plus(®) spark plugs from Federal-

Sunday's final round brought together 15 of the world's leading snocross racers
on a highly technical track featuring huge air jumps and a challenging rhythm
section. Martin scored a holeshot off the start and ran in the top two the
entire race. "Ross was first on the throttle and the sled just rocketed away
from most of the field," said Champion Product 
Manager Michael Kollenberg. "Champion Copper Plus and Power Sport(TM) spark plugs are ideal for engines needing instant throttle response and maximum power in very challenging conditions." Martin and the Judnick Motorsports team return to Amsoil Championship Snocross competition this weekend at the Deadwood Shoot Out in Deadwood, S.D.
