51-year partnership between MOOG and NASCAR expanded to include thrilling NASCAR Whelen Euro Series
Bradford, UK, 6th June 2017… Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul LLC, today announced an agreement between its MOOG® brand and NASCAR® Whelen Euro Series to provide all competition cars with steering and suspension components. This new agreement complements our long-standing NASCAR partnership, where since 1966, the MOOG brand has carried every Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series champion to victory.
“MOOG parts benefit from extensive R&D and the latest developments in technology. The rigorous racing demands of NASCAR are a valuable test-bed for product development and performance that MOOG customers can benefit from globally”, explained Tim Nelson, NASCAR Motorsports Director, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “We are delighted to expand our existing motorsport commitments, and that a thrilling, emerging series such as NASCAR Whelen Euro Series is now also able to benefit from MOOG’s extensive expertise.”
The NASCAR Whelen Euro Series was established in 2012 and expands the appeal of NASCAR to a wider audience. For 2017, the Series is hosted by six venues, culminating with the championship in Zolder, Belgium, in October. The next two rounds, to be held at Brands Hatch, Kent, UK, will take place on June 10th and 11th.
“The MOOG brand has enjoyed unprecedented success during its half-decade association with NASCAR and we are looking forward to a similarly long-standing European partnership,” said Jérôme Galpin, CEO, NASCAR Whelen Euro Series. “The racing conditions of NASCAR are notoriously demanding and the durability and performance benefits provided by MOOG are a welcome addition to the pits of NASCAR Whelen Euro Series.”
