Bosch Charitable Donation to Benefit Brad Keselowski's Checkered Flag Foundation

BROADVIEW, IL.- March, 23, 2015 – In recognition of Brad Keselowski’s exciting win at Sunday’s Auto Club 400 in Fontana, CA, Bosch Aftermarket NA is contributing $1,000 to the Team Penske driver’s Checkered Flag Foundation.

Based in Mooresville, SC, the Checkered Flag Foundation works to raise money to support individuals who have sacrificed greatly, including military members, veterans, first-responders, and their families, among others. Since its inception, CFF has hosted or participated in events with the Wounded Warrior Project, the Armed Forces Foundation, The Paralyzed Veterans of America, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the Detroit F.I.R.E benefit team.

“It was exciting to see Team Penske win for the second time this season, especially with such a wild finish.  Brad Keselowski put on a fantastic show for a thrilling green-white-checkered race to the finish line,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Bosch is deeply gratified that winning race teams, like Team Penske, depend on quality parts from Bosch to get them into victory lane.”
