Off The Track, Marine and Powersport

During the difficult economic downturn in 2008/2009, my family had to make the hard decision to give up our beloved snowmobiles. For the last 6 years, we've looked back on our trips and longed to be able to go back to a time when we all got together to enjoy the sport. With the auto industry coming back very strong recently, I've been able to go out and buy some second hand snowmobiles for the entire family. With each of the snowmobiles being 10 plus years old, they've each needed their fair share of maintenance. I do all of my own work and repairs on all of our equipment. One of the easiest and most important upgrades on our snowmobiles is to install a fresh set of Champion spark plugs in the snowmobiles to get them running their best. I've loved being able to get my whole family involved in the sport again. We've spent many late nights out in the garage listening to music and tuning up our machines. The time spent isn't about the machines themselves, but the bonds made in working on them together and enjoying each other's company. For me, the sport provides a common ground for us to get together, load the up the truck, and get away from the daily grind. I think I deserve the grand prize for the Search for a Champion contest because I try my hardest everyday to provide the machines needed to keep my family thrilled every weekend! We have relied on Champion's spark plugs to keep not only our machines running their best, but also our families bond our strongest. Without the dependable parts we use, we wouldn't be able to enjoy the times spent together. Thank you Champion, and I look forward to being your next CHAMPION!

How does Champion keep you running off the track?

Since the days when I was young spending evenings out in the garage with my father, Champion has been a name instilled in my head. Growing up with a family of gear heads, you pick up on what kind of parts people prefer. Every machine I own relies on Champion to keep them running their best. Everything from my lawn mower to my snowblower has always relied on Champion plugs. I've had fantastic luck running your Champion RV12YC in my 1986 Buick Grand National as well!
