BROADVIEW, Ill. (Aug. 9, 2016) — Team Penske and Joe Gibbs Racing drivers helped to secure more than $4,000 in charitable donations from Robert Bosch LLC, Automotive Aftermarket North America throughout the month of July.
Bosch said it donated the money to the drivers' specified charities through its Giving Track program, which pledges donations of $1,000 each time one its drivers earns a 2016 NASCAR Spring Cup Series victory.
“In the month of July, Bosch-sponsored drivers took four out of five NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and we're proud to be a part of their trips to victory lane,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Bosch. “Moreover, we are committed to enriching our partnerships with these teams by providing needed funding for their specific charities that are so very important to the motorsport community.”
On July 2 and July 9, Brad Keselowski's back-to-back victories at Daytona and Kentucky secured $2,000 in contributions to his Checkered Flag Foundation, which supports heroes and their families for the sacrifices they've made through grants, special events and more.
Matt Kenseth's July 17 victory at New Hampshire earned a contribution to Motor Racing Outreach, a faith-based organization which works to support the motorsport community.
On July 24, Kyle Busch's win at Indianapolis secured a contribution to the Kyle Busch Foundation, which works to empower children, families and communities to overcome hardship and to allow them to live their best lives possible.
