More than 160 racing teams have submitted their two-minute video entries into the Champion spark plug brand’s $125,000 “Search for a Champion” racing sponsorship contest, and it’s now time for consumers to choose their favorites by logging on, viewing and voting at

“Performance Driven” Champion spark plugs, wiper blades and chemical additives are products of global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Corp.

The first phase of Search for a Champion voting will continue through Feb. 3, when the 15 top videos – as judged by voters and NASCAR Sprint Cup driver and Champion spokesperson Kevin Harvick – will be selected as winners of $5,000 Champion sponsorships. In addition, these 15 first-round winners will advance into the finals for the Champion brand’s $50,000 grand-prize sponsorship. Harvick will announce the 15 finalists on Feb. 21, just three days before NASCAR’s season-opening Daytona 500. Those who register and vote for their favorite videos will be entered into sweepstakes drawings for Champion T-shirts as well as posters autographed by Harvick.

“The videos are fantastic this year, which tells us that each of these talented racers has as much passion for their sport as I do for auto racing. And it shows that they’d love nothing more than to take their racing programs to the next level with a Champion sponsorship,” said Harvick, driver of the No. 29 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet.

The Search for a Champion contest is open to grassroots racers in any engine-driven form of competition who created and submitted a two-minute video describing how a Champion sponsorship would help them dominate the competition during the 2013 season.

Voting for the grand-prize winner will take place Feb. 22 through March 24, with the $50,000 Search for a Champion sponsorship being awarded by Harvick on April 2.
