BROADVIEW, Ill. – Carl Edwards performed his signature celebratory backflip off of his Bosch-equipped No. 19 XFINITY Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota Camry for the second consecutive week, following his win at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 on Sunday. Securing the fourth consecutive victory for Joe Gibbs Racing, Edwards maneuvered his way into first place with the first final lap pass in the history of Richmond International Raceway. In recognition of Edwards’ win, the Bosch Automotive Aftermarket NA Giving Track Program is making a $1,000 charitable contribution to Speedway Children’s Charities for the second week in a row. To date in 2016, Bosch has contributed $9,000 to the charities of its sponsored teams, $6,000 of which has been earned by Joe Gibbs Racing.
Speedway Children’s Charities works to help children in educational, financial, social and medical need in order to help them lead productive lives. Providing funding for hundreds of non-profit organizations throughout the nation that meet the direct needs of children, Speedway Children’s Charities believes that every child should have the same opportunities no matter what obstacle they are facing.
“Bosch congratulates Carl Edwards on another hard-fought win, and is honored to be a part of this milestone fourth straight NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory for Joe Gibbs Racing,” said Tony Pauly, director of advertising and brand management for Robert Bosch LLC, Automotive Aftermarket North America. “Through the Bosch Giving Track program, we are proud to extend support off the track to fine organizations such as Speedway Children’s Charities to help them achieve their goals.”
Bosch involvement in motorsports dates back to the early 1900s, and it has been equipping NASCAR teams with parts and technical advice since 1991. In 2012, when the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series made the move from carbureted engines to more efficient fuel injected engines, Bosch became the sport’s exclusive oxygen sensor supplier. Beginning in 2016, Bosch has expanded its agreement with NASCAR to include fuel injectors and fuel pumps.
