SFAC Logo-EBThe Champion Spark Plug brand is once again stepping forward to support grassroots racers through the popular $125,000 “Search for a Champion” contest, which will fund 15 sponsorships available to racers in virtually every form of engine-driven competition. Racers can enter the contest beginning Nov. 3, 2014, by submitting a 2-minute video profile at www.AlwaysaChampion.com. Champion spark plugs, filters and chemical additives are distributed by Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corporation.

The Search for a Champion contest will offer 15 $5,000 Champion racing sponsorships and one $50,000 grand-prize sponsorship to grassroots racers whose entry videos best demonstrate their commitment to winning with the help of “Performance Driven” Champion spark plugs. For the third straight year, Federal-Mogul Motorparts and the Champion brand will also award free Champion “swag” bags, complete with a contest decal and Champion hat and t-shirt, to the first 250 entrants.

The contest is open to racers in three broad categories – Asphalt, Dirt and Water/Snow – with winners selected based in part on votes cast by members of the Web-based Champion community. Last year’s contest established new records for number of video entries (392) and consumer votes (more than 243,000).

Video entries must be submitted to the www.AlwaysaChampion.com website between Nov. 3, 2014, and Jan. 4, 2015. The Champion community will vote for 15 finalists between January 6 and February 3, 2015. Voting for the $50,000 Search for a Champion grand prize will take place February 24 through March 24, 2015.
