Now in its fifth year, the Search for a Champion contest enables grassroots drivers to compete for sponsorship cash and other prizes based on materials submitted for voter review at AlwaysAChampion.com. Entrants in the Advanced category were required to submit photos, a 300-word essay and a two-minute video describing why they deserve to become a member of #TeamChampion. In the Amateur category, participants were required to submit photos and an essay, with the option to enter a video. More than 119,000 votes were cast in the contest’s opening round.

“The racing community has an incredibly strong connection to the Champion brand based not only on our continued product leadership, but also because Champion has always been a strong proponent of grassroots motorsports enthusiasts,” said Laura Soave, chief marketing and communications officer, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “This exciting annual contest builds on the brand’s heritage of helping millions of customers worldwide maximize the performance of their engines and vehicles and other equipment.”
