Matt Kenseth secured his spot in the Contender Round of the Chase for the NASCAR Spint Cup by getting his Bosch-equipped No. 20 Dollar General Toyota to the checkered flag first in Sunday’s New Hampshire race. In recognition of the victory, Bosch Aftermarket NA is making its fifth $1,000 contribution of the 2015 season to Motor Racing Outreach (MRO). To date, the drivers of Joe Gibbs Racing have earned a total of $14,000 for their respective charities.
MRO 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 serve other forms of motorsports such as motorcycle and powerboat racing. A faith-based organization, MRO’s 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.
“Bosch congratulates Matt Kenseth on another great win,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch Automotive Aftermarket North America. “The Gibbs Team has excellent power from their Toyotas. This will lead to a very exciting race next week in Dover.”
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 scores of wins and seven Sprint Cup Series championships since 2001.
Thus far in the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, Bosch-supported teams have won twenty-four races, garnering a total Bosch Aftermarket NA contribution of $24,000 to help their respective charities carry out their missions.
