Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 Lowe's Chevrolet SS pulled away on a restart with six laps remaining to win Sunday's 55th running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. The 48 car - like every car that has won a NASCAR Cup championship over the past 47 years - is equipped with precision-engineered MOOG steering and suspension components from Federal-Mogul.

Jimmie Johnson and the No. 48 Lowe’s Chevrolet SS pulled away on a restart with six laps remaining to win Sunday’s 55th running of the Daytona 500 at Daytona (Fla.) International Speedway. The 48 car – like every car that has won a NASCAR Cup championship over the past 47 years – is equipped with precision-engineered MOOG steering and suspension components from Federal-Mogul.
 
“MOOG parts are right back where they finished the 2012 season – in the winner’s circle,” said Federal-Mogul Motorsports Director Tim Nelson. “Jimmie was strong all day, and he used lane choice and a great-handling chassis to pull it out at the end.”
 
Johnson was followed by runner-up Dale Earnhardt Jr. (No. 88 Chevrolet), Mark Martin (No. 55 Toyota) and defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski (No. 2 Ford), each of whom also rely exclusively on MOOG steering and suspension components. It was the 61st Sprint Cup win in 400 starts for Johnson, whose resume includes a record five straight Cup titles.
 
As the automotive service industry’s “Problem Solver,” MOOG parts are the leading choice of professional technicians and NASCAR crew chiefs, said the company. Federal-Mogul steering and suspension engineers work in partnership with Cup teams to develop and test innovative designs that help provide race-winning performance and durability. Many of these same technologies are featured in MOOG ball joints, tie rod ends and other components available for today’s passenger vehicles.
