A five-time Sprint Cup champion, Johnson drives the No. 48 Chevy SS for Hendrick Motorsports. His car is equipped with a host of Bosch components – Bosch Spark Plugs, Alternator, Starter, Fuel Pump, Ignition Coils, Fuel Injectors and, like all NASCAR Sprint Cup cars, Bosch Oxygen Sensors.

Jimmie Johnson“The technology and experience gained from Bosch products that are engineered for racing is applied to manufacturing high quality products which technicians use for passenger vehicles in repair shops,” said Odd Joergenrud, regional president, North America, Robert Bosch LLC. “Extensive testing procedures and rigorous standards used by our product development teams ultimately show up in how Bosch components hold their own in an environment as demanding as the race track and on the road,” he said.

“Bosch Oxygen Sensors are an exclusive NASCAR Performance product, and contribute to engine efficiency and performance,” said Joergenrud. Bosch pioneered electronic fuel injection back in the 1970s, developing the automotive oxygen sensor as part of the total system.
