CHICAGO, IL -- Labor Weekend marked the fifth consecutive victory for Ford Motor Company at the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Crandon, Wisconsin, and a "three-peat" victory for Rob MacCachren, who drove a Ford F-150 truck to victory for the third year in a row. MacCachren successfully defended his 'King of Off-Road Racing' crown against a field of 17 trucks in front of a record crowd at Crandon.

"We're delighted that The BorgWarner Manufacturers' Challenge Cup will reside for yet another year with Ford Motor Company," said Tim Manganello, President, BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems. "I am proud to say that Rob's winning Ford F-150 truck was equipped with a BorgWarner Torque-on-Demand(TM) 4 X 4 transfer case, as were the Ford F-150s that placed second and third."

The BorgWarner Manufacturers' Challenge Cup goes to the manufacturer of the winning truck in the BorgWarner World Championship Off-Road Races, held at the Crandon International Off-Road Raceway in Crandon, Wisconsin over Labor Day weekend. The $120,000 hand-crafted cup stands 44 inches tall and is made of sterling silver and 18-karat gold. BorgWarner presented the award for the first time in 1995. Previous winners include DaimlerChrysler Corporation and GM's Chevrolet Division.

BorgWarner's support of off-road racing has strong ties to its research and development efforts in advancing the company's product leadership position in the automotive industry. The strenuous conditions of off-road racing provide an excellent proving ground to test the performance and endurance of the company's four-wheel-drive transfer cases. A transfer case allows a vehicle to shift between two- and four-wheel drive.

BorgWarner TorqTransfer Systems is the leading independent global designer and producer of torque distribution and management systems -- transfer cases, InterActive Torque Management (ITM) devices -- for four-wheel drive vehicles for the sport-utility, light truck and crossover vehicle markets. These systems enhance driver security, driveability and handling.
