Bosch Giving Track Contributions Reach $20,000 in September

Thursday, Sep 29 1314
When Denny Hamlin took the checkered flag at the Federated Auto Parts 400 on September 10 in his Bosch-equipped No. 11 FedEx Ground Toyota, Bosch crossed the $20,000 mark in charitable contributions through its Giving Track program in 2016. 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.

 

Hamlin’s win at Richmond International Raceway in September earned a fourth $1,000 Bosch Giving Track contribution to the Denny Hamlin Foundation this season. To date for 2016, Joe Gibbs Racing teams have garnered $12,000 in Giving Track funds.

 

The Denny Hamlin Foundation is committed to raising awareness and funds for the specific needs of children with cystic fibrosis, partnering with organizations that focus on cystic fibrosis research, treatment advances, and overall quality of life care. The Foundation also supports children with other chronic diseases.

 

“Rooted in the principles of our company founder, social responsibly remains a core value across our businesses. Through Giving Track, Bosch extends beyond the track to reach the communities of our sponsored drivers by contributing to their personal charities,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Robert Bosch LLC, Automotive Aftermarket NA. “In 2016, Bosch-sponsored drivers have already accumulated $20,000 in contributions to causes close to their hearts through the Giving Track program.”

 

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.
