The long-standing partnership of Bosch and Hendrick Motorsports clinched another NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship this year when Jimmie Johnson, driving the Bosch-equipped No. 48 Chevrolet SS, took his sixth title at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on November 17.
“Bosch involvement with NASCAR and its partnership with Hendrick Motorsports, now more than a decade old, continues to be a win-win for all,” said Tony Pauly, director of Advertising and Brand Management for Robert Bosch LLC.
“Jimmie Johnson’s No. 48 Chevy SS, which debuted this season, is equipped with a host of Bosch components – spark plugs, alternator, starter, fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, ignition coils, fuel injectors and, like all NASCAR Sprint Cup cars, Bosch oxygen sensors,” Pauly said.
For the second straight season, all four Hendrick Motorsports teams qualified for NASCAR’s Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. In 2013, Hendrick Motorsports teams posted nine victories and seven pole positions. Johnson finished first, with Earnhardt fifth, Gordon sixth, and Kahne twelfth. This year marked the record 11th Sprint Cup Series championship for Hendrick Motorsports.
“Week in and week out, the Bosch products on our race cars help us to deliver the results on the track,” said Jeff Andrews, Director of Engine Operations at Hendrick Motorsports. “The racetrack is a tough environment for parts, but the Bosch products we use achieve terrific results under tough conditions. We’re fortunate to have the opportunity to partner with Bosch.”
