Southfield, Michigan, May 1, 2014...Federal-Mogul's (NASDAQ: FDML) Champion® Spark Plug brand today announced the return of the popular Champion "King of the Road" contest, which will pay out 10 weekly $500 cash prizes and a $5,000 grand prize to the owners of North America's hottest rides as judged by members of the Champion online community. The contest will be open for entries at www.AlwaysaChampion.com beginning May 12, 2014.
