Carl Edwards raced his Bosch-equipped No. 19 Subway Toyota to victory in Sunday’s Coca-Cola 600 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series TM Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In recognition of the victory, Bosch Aftermarket NA is making a $1,000 contribution to Joe Gibbs’ Speedway Children’s Charities. Thus far in the 2015 NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series TM season, Bosch-supported teams have won ten races, garnering a total of $10,000 to help their charities carry out their missions.
Speedway Children’s Charities (SCC) works to care for children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives. Founded in 1982 by Bruton Smith, Chairman of Speedway Motorsports and Sonic Automotive, in memory of his late son, the goal of SCC is to ensure that every child in need be given the tools to build a better, brighter and healthy future.
Speedway Children’s Charities local chapters are partners in change, working with a broad range of people and organizations to identify and resolve pressing issues dealing with children in their communities. Due to the unique conditions of every community, the issues Speedway Children's Charities address are determined locally. Challenges ranging from learning disabilities, broken homes, and childhood cancer are on the agenda for the local chapters of SCC and the numerous non-profit organizations they support.
“I can’t think of a better endorsement to the reliability and quality of Bosch parts than a 600-mile race,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Bosch congratulates Joe Gibbs Racing on this week’s win. We’re proud that the Joe Gibbs Racing teams trust Bosch quality parts and systems to power them to the checkered flag, and we’re happy to lend support to a worthy charity like Speedway Children’s Charities.”
