Denny Hamlin Foundation Earns Second Bosch Aftermarket NA Contribution

BROADVIEW, IL.- May 19, 2015 – Denny Hamlin drove his Bosch-equipped No. 11 FedEx Express Toyota to victory lane in Saturday evening’s NASCAR® Sprint All-Star Race, a non-points event, at Charlotte Motor Speedway. In recognition of Hamlin’s victory, Bosch Aftermarket NA is making a $1,000 contribution to the Denny Hamlin Foundation for the second time this season.  Thus far in 2015, Bosch supported teams have won nine times with their charities receiving a total of $9,000 to help in their missions.

Based in Mooresville, NC, the Denny Hamlin Foundation works to raise awareness and funds for children with cystic fibrosis. The foundation partners with organizations that focus on cystic fibrosis research, treatment advances and overall quality-of-life care. The Foundation also helps children with other chronic illnesses. Beneficiaries of the Denny Hamlin Foundation include: Children’s Hospital of Richmond, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Medical University of South Carolina Children’s Hospital, The NASCAR Foundation and Victory Junction Gang Camp.

“The Sprint All-Star race is an exciting event for the fans and we’re thrilled that Denny Hamlin earned his first All-Star Race victory not only for himself, but for the entire Joe Gibbs Racing Team ,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Bosch takes great pride that many of the best teams of NASCAR, like Joe Gibbs Racing, rely on Bosch quality parts and systems to power them to victory lane.”
