Bosch Automotive Aftermarket NA recently commemorated its history with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in celebration of the 100th Running of the Indianapolis 500. Honoring the milestone anniversary, Bosch contributed a race contingency prize of $50,000 to Alexander Rossi, the 100th winner of “The Greatest Spectacle in Racing” at Victory Circle on Sunday, May 29.
Bosch’s presence at the Indianapolis 500 dates to the first event in 1911 when the storied Marmon Wasp, driven by Ray Harroun and outfitted with Bosch parts, captured victory at the inaugural race. In the years since, Bosch has continued to provide quality parts and services to Indy 500 competitors, helping to win the renowned race more than 30 times.
The insights Bosch gains from performance on tracks such as the Indianapolis Motor Speedway translate to innovation on the road for consumers. Bosch engineers work hand-in-hand with race teams to extract learnings from vehicles after enduring the extreme conditions on the track.
