Casey Mears Crew Chief Robert ‘Bootie’ Barker Earns Career-First MOOG® Problem Solver of the Race Award at Daytona


Casey Mears and Robert “Bootie” Barker, driver and crew chief, respectively, of the No. 13 GEICO Chevrolet SS, earned one of the final spots in the starting grid for Sunday’s Daytona 500 thanks to another driver’s last-second pass in Thursday’s 150-mile qualifier. On Sunday evening, they were celebrating an impressive top-10 finish in NASCAR’s most prestigious event as well as Barker’s career-first “Problem Solver of the Race” award from MOOG®, Official Steering and Suspension of NASCAR.

The MOOG award is presented following each Sprint Cup contest to the crew chief whose car has posted the greatest second-half improvement in average lap time while finishing on the lead lap. The MOOG-equipped No. 13 Chevrolet, owned by Germain Racing, delivered a race-best 0.112-second improvement as it picked up 35 positions overall to finish sixth at Daytona. MOOG Steering and Suspension is a brand of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, which is a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.

Mears and Barker, who blew an engine early in their 150-mile qualifier, edged into the Sunday’s starting field based on 2014 Cup Series points as well as Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s final-lap pass of Brian Scott in the Thursday night event. Regardless of how they qualified for Sunday’s “Great American Race,” the 13 team made the most of the opportunity, with Barker’s strategy focused on staying clear of contact in the early going and then driving toward the front over the final 40 laps. With the help of precise adjustments to the car’s MOOG-equipped chassis, Mears was running strong in 18th position on Lap 161. The 13 car improved to 12th just five laps later and cracked the top 10 with 18 laps to go. Mears was closing in on the top five when the field was frozen following a final-lap accident.

“Bootie and Casey had a perfect restrictor plate strategy and when the time came, they had the power and handling to make a strong move toward the front,” said Tim Nelson, director of motorsports for the MOOG brand and Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “A big part of the problem solving process at tracks like Daytona and Talladega is to stay out of trouble early and focus on making your car better through smart chassis adjustments and great pit performance. Bootie and the Germain racing crew were outstanding today.”

The preferred choice of professional technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs, MOOG is in its 50th year of Cup competition. The brand also sponsors the $100,000 “Problem Solver of the Year” award, presented to the crew chief with the best overall performance throughout the 36-race Sprint Cup season. MOOG parts have been the choice of every Cup Series champion since 1966, an unprecedented 49-year winning streak.

NASCAR® Mandates MOOG® Products for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Competitors


Beginning in 2015, all NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series competitors will be required to use MOOG® Steering and Suspension parts in their cars, specifically MOOG ball joints and tie rod ends. This addition to the NASCAR rulebook reflects heightened awareness among team owners, crew chiefs and drivers of the critical safety and performance benefits of MOOG “Problem Solver®” components. MOOG is a brand of Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.

Heading into its 50th season of competition in NASCAR’s premier series, the MOOG brand has achieved the highest level of endorsement – NASCAR “Official Partner” – within North America’s most successful professional racing organization. MOOG parts have been the choice of every Cup Series champion since 1966, an unprecedented winning streak that has also helped make the brand the predominant choice of vehicle repair technicians throughout North America.

“There’s a tremendous amount of technology in every MOOG part, and each plays a vital role in delivering the safety and performance demanded by NASCAR teams, automotive technicians and millions of consumers,” said Michael Proud, director of marketing, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “As a NASCAR Official Partner, we will be able to dramatically extend the reach of this safety and performance message to consumers who want only the best parts for their own vehicles.”

Since its official introduction to NASCAR competition nearly 50 years ago, MOOG has used its racing leadership as a test bed for multiple generations of new steering and system part technologies engineered to deliver superior performance, increased product durability and safety, and help provide faster, easier installation. The brand has long sponsored two popular awards programs – the weekly MOOG “Problem Solver of the Race” and season-ending MOOG “Problem Solver of the Year” awards – that recognize NASCAR Sprint Cup Series crew chiefs for in-race problem-solving excellence.

“For nearly half a century, the MOOG Steering and Suspension brand has enjoyed unprecedented success in our sport, enduring the most rigorous racing conditions while delivering elite performance,” said Norris Scott, NASCAR vice president, Partnership Marketing. “Capitalizing on its rich history in our sport, MOOG is elevating its status to the distinction of NASCAR Official Partner, expanding its ability to reach the most brand loyal fans in sports.”
