Team McClure, Inc. is pleased to announce that Del Monte Foods has joined the TriStar Motorsports family of partners for the 2011 NASCAR Nationwide Series season.

The iconic green colors of the Del Monte brand will adorn the No. 19 Chevrolet in the NAPA Auto Parts 200 at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal and will be driven by veteran Mike Bliss.

Additionally, the brand will serve as an associate sponsor on the No. 14 Hefty BlackOut/Reynolds Impala driven by Eric McClure.

"It's always an honor to add a quality partner like the Del Monte brand to our stable," Bliss said. "Having run without primary sponsorship for most of the year, we are certainly grateful for Del Monte Foods for their support and we are looking forward to representing them in Montreal."

The NAPA Auto Parts 200 will air live on ESPN on Aug. 20 beginning at 2 p.m. Eastern.
