Bosch Giving Track Contributions Announced for July

Thursday, Aug 04 1419
The Bosch Automotive Aftermarket NA Giving Track charitable contribution program donated $4,000 to sponsored teams’ specified charities in the month of July, continuing to extend support of these teams off the track. Through Giving Track, Bosch pledges $1,000 to a team-specified charity each time one of its sponsored drivers secures a 2016 NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series™ victory. Contributions in July were secured by drivers from Team Penske and Joe Gibbs Racing, whose drivers have earned a total of $6,000 and $10,000 respectively in Bosch donations to date this season.

 

Bosch Giving Track contributions in July included the following:

  • On July 2 and July 9, Brad Keselowski’s back-to-back victories at Daytona and Kentucky secured $2,000 in contributions to his Checkered Flag Foundation, which supports heroes and their families for the sacrifices they’ve made through grants, special events and more.
  • On July 17, Matt Kenseth’s victory at New Hampshire earned a contribution to Motor Racing Outreach, a faith-based organization which works to support the motorsport community so that they may enjoy a more wholesome life together, and in turn, become good role models for millions of motorsport fans around the world.
  • On July 24, Kyle Busch’s win at Indianapolis secured a contribution to the Kyle Busch Foundation, which works to empower children, families and communities to overcome hardship and to allow them to live their best lives possible.

 

“In the month of July, Bosch-sponsored drivers took four out of five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and we’re proud to be a part of their trips to victory lane,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Robert Bosch LLC, Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Moreover, we are committed to enriching our partnerships with these teams by providing needed funding for their specific charities that are so very important to the motorsport community.”

 

Bosch involvement in motorsports dates back to the early 1900’s, and it has been equipping NASCAR teams with parts and technical advice since 1991. In 2012, when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series made the move from carbureted engines to more efficient fuel injected engines, Bosch became the sport’s exclusive oxygen sensor supplier.

Beginning in 2016, Bosch has expanded its agreement with NASCAR to include fuel injectors and fuel pumps.
