Mechanics win trip to a Nascar race in the United States
Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul LLC, is sending two technicians from Top-notch Motor Repairs in Tamworth in the UK to the USA to see the thrills of Nascar at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida.
The winners entered a prize draw sponsored by Moog, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ steering and suspension specialist. Moog has sponsored Nascar for over 50 years and supplies parts to all cars in both the European and US series.
The grand prize was a trip for two to watch a Nascar race in the US, including flights, accommodations and track transfers. Runner-up prizes included hospitality tickets for the Brands Hatch leg of the Nascar Whelen Euro Series, while over 500 limited edition prizes were also awarded, including t-shirts and caps.
“We have only just taken in the good news,” said winner Kevin Taylor. “To say we are both really chuffed is an understatement”.
“We chose to go to the race at Daytona in Florida so that we can take full advantage of the trip and indulge our other great passion, big game fishing. We are both keen anglers and the combination of Florida, Nascar and some time out on the sea is just about as perfect a holiday as we can imagine. We are so grateful for the opportunity to enter the draw and really value Moog components – they help us complete a first-class job for our customers and we, in turn, trust them with our reputation.”
Jonathan Allen, Regional Marketing Manager, Federal-Mogul Motorparts said “Congratulations to the guys at Top-notch Motor Repairs for winning the competition, and also a big thank you to everyone who got involved”.
“The promotion was an enormous success, and it was good to see so many Moog customers at Brands Hatch. Nascar is a great showcase for our products, as no conditions are more arduous for components than racing. It is a testament to Moog’s quality.”
The promotion was run to celebrate Moog’s sponsorship of the 2018 Nascar Whelen Euro Series, which sees drivers compete in 11 rounds across Europe.
The next races in the series, the 2018 semi-finals, will be held on September 15-16 at the Hockenheimring in Germany.
