Speedway, said the company.

After 47 years, 20 different drivers and countless product innovations, one thing hasn’t changed for Federal-Mogul’s  MOOG steering and suspension brand: It remains the technology of choice of NASCAR Sprint Cup champions. The automotive aftermarket’s premier brand of steering and suspension parts extended its Cup winning streak to 47 years when Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Miller Lite Dodge clinched their first title in the Ford EcoBoost 400 at Homestead-Miami (Fla.) Speedway, said the company.
 
The Penske Racing-owned team finished the year with five wins, 13 top-five and 23 top-10 finishes – each delivered with the help of MOOG parts. It’s the first Cup title for the 28-year-old Keselowski, his crew chief, Paul Wolfe, and team owner and racing icon Roger Penske.
 
“When you look at the list of champions dating back to the beginning of our streak in 1966 – names like David Pearson, Richard Petty, Cale Yarborough, Dale Earnhardt, Jeff Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, and now Brad and Roger – you realize that this brand has been an integral part of the entire modern era of NASCAR racing,” said Michael Proud, director of marketing, North America, Federal-Mogul. “Crew chiefs, team owners and drivers prefer MOOG because they know our parts are engineered to help win championships. This same standard is applied to every MOOG component installed by automotive repair technicians across North America.”
 
The brand’s trademark “Problem Solving” engineering philosophy – which includes the development of innovative designs combined with premium-quality materials – helped MOOG-equipped teams earn 11 of the 12 positions in the season-ending Chase for the Sprint Cup.
 
According to the company, the MOOG product line includes an array 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, and hub assemblies – 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.
