BROADVIEW, Ill. (July 1, 2016) — Robert Bosch L.L.C. Automotive Aftermarket North America recently donated $1,000 to the Joey Logano Foundation, a non-profit founded by the NASCAR driver to help provide support for individuals affected by natural or human disaster.
The donation, made through Bosch's Giving Track program, was provided in recognition of Mr. Logano's victory June 12 at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series' Firekeepers Casino 400 at Michigan International Speedway.
“Organizations such as the Joey Logano Foundation exemplify the way NASCAR supports and positively impacts local communities,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Robert Bosch L.L.C., Automotive Aftermarket North America.
“Focusing on charitable organizations that are chosen by our sponsored drivers allows Bosch to extend support off the track for needs that are important to our neighbors.”
According to its website, the Joey Logano Foundation aims to “inspire and assemble the NASCAR community to assist those across the nation who are in need of a second chance due to natural or human disaster.”
To facilitate, the foundation partners with other community organizations that provide support, comfort and relief in the midst of unforeseen circumstance.
Through its Giving Track program, Bosch donates $1,000 to a team-specified charity each time one of its sponsored drivers secures a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory this season. Mr. Logano has earned a Giving Track donation twice this season.
So far this year, Bosch has donated $14,000 to the charities of its sponsored teams, including $4,000 in donations to Team Penske-supported causes.
Bosch said it has been equipping NASCAR teams with parts and technical advice since 1991. When the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series made the move from carbureted engines to more efficient fuel injected engines in 2012, Bosch became the sport's exclusive oxygen sensor supplier. This year, Bosch has expanded its agreement with NASCAR to include fuel injectors and fuel pumps.
