Free Weekend Getaway, Other Prizes Available Through Wagner Brake Things Worth Braking For Contest

In celebration of the special summertime moments, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Wagner Brake brand has announced the “Things Worth Braking For” contest.

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Whether it’s part of a vacation road trip or daily commute, any summertime drive can result in an extra, “brake-worthy” stop – to enjoy a beautiful scene, buy an ice cream cone or visit a loved one.

In celebration of these special moments, Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ Wagner Brake brand has announced the “Things Worth Braking For” contest, which enables consumers to compete for a weekend getaway package and other prizes by submitting photos and captions documenting brake-worthy scenes.

The free contest is open for entries from June 19 through August 25 at

As part of its ongoing activities to highlight the importance of relying on high-quality brake components and service, Wagner Brake’s contest will award one grand-prize two-person weekend getaway package to any of nine U.S. cities – Austin, Texas; Boston; Charleston, S.C.; Chicago; Denver; Nashville; New Orleans; San Diego; or Seattle.

Also available are free one-year subscriptions to an online music service for each of 10 honorable mention recipients. Contest winners will be selected based on creativity, originality and photo quality.

“Making an extra stop during any trip can often result in unexpected memories that last a lifetime,” said Christine Fisher, group brand manager, friction, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “This contest is simply a fun way to celebrate the freedom that comes with summertime drives and to remind all motorists to make sure their brake systems are properly maintained.”

The grand-prize weekend getaway will include two roundtrip airline tickets, hotel accommodations for three nights and a $750 prepaid gift card. The contest is available in the 48 contiguous U.S. states, District of Columbia and Canada (excluding Quebec). Participants must be 18 years old or older to qualify.
