Kyle Busch Foundation Earns Second Charitable Donation from Bosch Aftermarket

BROADVIEW, IL.- July 14, 2015 – Kyle Busch raced his Bosch-equipped No. 18 M&M’s Toyota to victory in Saturday night’s Quaker State 400 NASCAR® Sprint Cup Series TM Race in Kentucky. In recognition of the victory, Bosch Aftermarket NA is making a $1,000 contribution – the second this season – to the Kyle Busch Foundation. Thus far in the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup SeriesTM season, Bosch-supported teams have won fourteen races, for a total of $14,000 contributed to help carry out the missions of their selected charities.

The Kyle Busch Foundation works to empower children, families and communities to overcome hardships, allowing them to live the best lives possible. The Foundation concentrates its efforts on assisting organizations in fostering a stable and inspiring environment for children, families and communities to live, learn and challenge themselves as well as ensuring day-to-day needs are met. The Foundation supports the following charities: A Child’s Place, Barium Springs, Church of God’s Children Home of North Carolina, Girl Talk Foundation, Isabella Santos Foundation, Kyle & Samantha Busch Bundle of Joy Fund, My Sister’s House, Pretty in Pink Foundation and Speedway Children’s Charities.

“It was exciting to see Kyle Busch dominate the field in Kentucky,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Bosch congratulates the entire Joe Gibbs Racing organization on another great win. We’re proud to partner with Joe Gibbs Racing to supply Bosch quality parts and systems that help power them to the checkered flag; and it’s an honor to lend support to worthwhile charitable organizations such as the Kyle Busch Foundation.”
