Equipped with Bosch Oxygen Sensors, Team Penske’s No. 3 car, driven by Helio Castroneves, captured the team’s first IZOD IndyCar Series victory of the season at Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth, TX on June 8. The win gave Castroneves a 22-point lead in the series championship standings. Castroneves led the final 132 laps to earn his fourth career victory on the track.
In a separate venue, at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Party in the Poconos 400, Jimmie Johnson continued his 2013 season with another commanding win. Leading for 128 out of the 160 laps, Johnson won from the pole taking his third win for this track as well as for the season.
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.
“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.
