Kenseth Win at Pocono Earns Bosch Aftermarket NA Contribution for Motor Racing Outreach

BROADVIEW, IL. August 3, 2015 – After a wild finish, Matt Kenseth was able to successfully save enough fuel to get his Bosch-equipped No. 20 Dollar General Toyota to Victory Lane at Sunday’s NASCAR® Sprint Cup SeriesTM Race at Pocono.  In recognition of the victory, Bosch Aftermarket NA is making its second $1,000 contribution of the year to Motor Racing Outreach. Thus far in the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Bosch-supported teams have won seventeen races, for a total of $17,000 contributed to help carry out the missions of respective team charities.

Motor Racing Outreach 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. Originally founded in 1988 to serve the NASCAR Sprint Cup racing community, MRO has evolved over the years to servicing other forms of motorsports like motorcycle and powerboat racing. MRO is a faith-based organization, whose mission includes introducing the racing community to a personal faith in Christ, encouraging active involvement in the church, understanding God’s word and assisting in the development of leadership skills.

“Congratulations to Matt Kenseth and his team for running a smart race and taking the checkered flag,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “It’s been exciting to watch the Joe Gibbs Racing Organization burning up the track week after week. Bosch is extremely gratified that highly-successful NASCAR  teams like Joe Gibbs Racing rely on our quality parts and systems to help power them to Victory Lane.”

Bosch Aftermarket has a long-standing partnership with NASCAR, providing oxygen sensors to all NASCAR Sprint Cup Series teams.  Additionally, Bosch has provided quality parts — including spark plugs, injectors, alternators, coils, filters, fuel pumps, starters and pressure regulators — to multiple NASCAR teams for more than a decade, helping them to numerous appearances in Victory Lane and seven Sprint Cup Series championships since 2001.
