Fel-Pro® PermaTorque® MLS Head Gaskets Help Seal Historic NHRA Championship for Erica Enders-Stevens

Fel-Pro Logo

Erica Enders-Stevens became the first woman to win the NHRA Pro Stock class championship when she out-dueled series runner-up Jason Line in the final round of the Auto Club Finals at Auto Club Raceway, Pomona, Calif., in mid-November. As they had throughout their historic 2014 season, Enders-Stevens and the Elite Performance Chevrolet Camaro rocketed to victory with a 1,350-horsepower, 500-cubic-inch General Motors DRCE engine sealed with Fel-Pro® PermaTorque® MLS head gaskets from Federal-Mogul Motorparts. Federal-Mogul Motorparts is a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.

Enders-Stevens, who began her racing career at age eight and was featured in the 2003 Disney film “Right on Track,” joins just two other women – the legendary Shirley Muldowney (Top Fuel) and Angelle Sampey (Pro Stock Motorcycle) – who have won an NHRA pro class championship. Her engines are built by renowned Pro Stock engine builder Nick Ferri of Elite Performance, who has won four class championships since 2002 and has relied almost exclusively on Fel-Pro head gaskets throughout his 28-year career.

“The biggest challenge in Pro Stock is walking the fine line between generating maximum horsepower and making sure the engine will live,” Ferri said. “There’s a lot of stress on a lot of parts, but with Fel-Pro head gaskets we know that head sealing will never be an issue. We’re running between 16- and 17-to-1 compression ratio, and the gaskets have always done their job.”

As engines produce more power per cubic inch, they can encounter localized “hot spots” within head and block castings and head lift issues associated with extreme casting temperatures and cylinder pressures. Fel-Pro PermaTorque MLS performance and stock-replacement head gaskets are designed and manufactured to maintain the contact stress required to seal under these conditions. The head gaskets (Fel-Pro part no. 1129-1) sealing Enders-Stevens’ engines feature the same industry-leading technologies that have made PermaTorque MLS the number-one choice of engine builders, race teams and street performance enthusiasts. Each gasket is composed of multiple layers of premium full-hard stainless steel, precisely engineered sealing beads and advanced polymer coatings that help maintain contact pressure between the cylinder head and block.

“We’ve seen the benefits of PermaTorque MLS technology in thousands of miles of championship oval track competition and countless passes on North American drag strips, but by far its most impressive accomplishment is to have earned the trust and loyalty of talented and demanding engine professionals like Nick,” said Ron Rotunno, product manager, performance products, Federal-Mogul Motorparts.

To learn more about Fel-Pro PermaTorque MLS head gaskets and other industry-leading Fel-Pro sealing solutions, please contact your Fel-Pro supplier and visit the all-new                 www.FelPro-Only.com. Follow @FelPro_Gaskets on Twitter and like us on Facebook.

Kevin Harvick Becomes 49th Consecutive NASCAR® Cup Champion To Win With MOOG® Steering and Suspension Parts

MOOG Logo Banner

Kevin Harvick earned his first NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series championship and the MOOG® Steering and Suspension brand’s 49th straight with a thrilling victory in Sunday’s season-ending Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway.

Harvick’s win in the MOOG-equipped No. 4 Budweiser Chevrolet SS extends a Cup title string that began in 1966 with David Pearson and the No. 6 Dodge and includes many of the biggest names in professional stock car racing history. MOOG Steering and Suspension components are manufactured by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: FDML).

The 38-year-old Harvick, who made perhaps the biggest decision of his career in moving to Stewart-Haas Racing at the beginning of the season, passed Denny Hamlin and the No. 11 Toyota Camry with seven laps remaining and held off Ryan Newman’s hard-charging No. 31 Chevrolet to win the first championship under NASCAR’s new four-round Chase format. The MOOG-equipped No. 4 car finished the year with five wins, 14 top fives and 20 top 10s.

“Kevin has been one of the most successful and popular drivers throughout his 14-year Cup racing career, so it was only a matter of time until he added his name to the list of greats who have won it all while relying on world-class MOOG parts,” said Michael Proud, director of marketing, North America, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “It was a fantastic ending to the Chase, and we’re thrilled MOOG once again came out on top.”

MOOG Steering and Suspension is the preferred brand of professional technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs, and MOOG components are recognized as the automotive service industry’s “Problem Solver,” with innovative parts that improve on original designs by providing increased durability, enhanced performance and easier installation. The MOOG product line includes an extensive range of high-quality steering and suspension components – including ball joints, tie rod ends, control arms, idler and pitman arms, sway bar links, complete strut assemblies, hub assemblies and universal joints – covering virtually any foreign-nameplate or domestic vehicle. These parts are available through thousands of automotive service locations and parts providers throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“Automotive repair professionals recognize the vital role our NASCAR program plays in the development of parts that provide superior durability and performance,” Proud said.

Jimmie Johnson Dominates at Texas, Crew Chief Chad Knaus Wins Third MOOG® ‘Problem Solver of the Race’ Award

MOOG_ProblemSolver_oftheRace_NASCAR_2

Six-time NASCAR® Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson led 191 of 341 laps in picking up his fourth win of the season, and his crew chief, Chad Knaus, earned his third MOOG® Steering and Suspension “Problem Solver of the Race” Award in Sunday’s AAA Texas 500 at Texas Motor Speedway.

Sponsored by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation, the weekly MOOG Problem Solver award is presented to the crew chief whose car posts the greatest second-half improvement in average lap time while finishing on the lead lap. Johnson and the MOOG-equipped No. 48 Lowe’s Red Vest Chevrolet SS picked up a race-best 0.702-second per lap over the final 171 laps at Texas.

With three weekly Problem Solver wins, Knaus moves into a four-way tie for second place in the $100,000 MOOG “Problem Solver of the Year” standings with just two races remaining. His latest MOOG win came in dominating fashion, as the 48 car grabbed the lead on Lap 54 and relinquished it only as a result of green-flag pit stops over the balance of the race. Johnson fought off challenges from Jeff Gordon and Brad Keselowski, respectively, in the two attempts at green-white-checkered finishes to win his third consecutive fall race at Texas and fourth overall. The race saw a record 13 cautions, 12 of which occurred following the halfway point.

“Jimmie stayed out ahead of trouble and Chad gave him a great-handling car throughout the race,” said Tim Nelson, motorsports director for Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “They’re out of the Chase picture, but the 48 team showed they still have plenty to battle for, including the year-end MOOG Problem Solver award.”

Ryan Newman (No. 31 Chevrolet) crew chief Luke Lambert remains in the lead for the $100,000 MOOG award with four weekly Problem Solver wins, followed by Knaus, Jimmy Fennig (No. 99 Ford, Carl Edwards), Chris Heroy (No. 42 Chevrolet, Kyle Larson) and Steve Letarte (No. 88 Chevrolet, Dale Earnhardt Jr.) with three wins apiece. Five crew chiefs have two weekly MOOG wins.

MOOG Steering and Suspension is the preferred brand of professional technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs, and MOOG components are recognized as the automotive service industry’s “Problem Solver,” with innovative parts that improve on original designs by providing increased durability, enhanced performance and easier installation. NASCAR Cup champions have driven to victory with MOOG parts for an unprecedented 48 straight years.
