Southfield, Michigan, February 27, 2013.Joe Lax, crew chief for J.J. Yeley and
the No. 36 Golden Corral Chevrolet SS, captured his first NASCAR(®) MOOG(®)
"Problem Solver of the Race" Award after the No. 36 team delivered a top 10
finish in Sunday's season-opening Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International
Speedway. The prestigious weekly and year-end MOOG "Problem Solver" awards are
sponsored by global vehicle components manufacturer            Federal-Mogul
Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML).

The MOOG Problem Solver of the Race Award is presented to the crew chief whose
car posts the greatest improvement in average lap time during the second half of
each Sprint Cup event while finishing on the lead lap. The 36 team, which
finished 10(th) after starting in 41(st) position, delivered a race-best 0.140-
second-per-lap improvement over the final 100 laps 
at Daytona. "J.J. and Joe are both new to the 36 team, so this was a great start to their partnership," said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim Nelson. "J.J. reported that he was a little loose early in the race and Joe nailed it with a track bar adjustment on the second pit stop. From there on out they had a very fast racecar." The MOOG steering and suspension-equipped 36 car, owned by Tommy Baldwin Racing, consistently ran in the top 15 following Lax's chassis adjustment. It was Yeley's highest career finish at Daytona and his best Sprint Cup series performance since 2008. In addition to the weekly MOOG Problem Solver of the Race Award, Federal-Mogul also presents the $100,000 MOOG "Problem Solver of the Year" Award to the crew chief with the best overall performance throughout the 36-race series.
