Heinz 57 Sauce will sponsor the Joe Gibbs Racing No. 20 Toyota Camry driven by Ryan Truex for the NASCAR Nationwide Series race at Dover International Speedway on Oct. 1.

"Having Heinz 57 Sauce come on board with me is exciting," Truex said. "Dover is one of my favorite tracks, so it is a great place to start our relationship. Our car looks great and is very bright, so it will be hard to miss out on the track! It will look even better if we can get it in victory lane."

This is Truex's fourth start in Nationwide Series races for JGR this season. His 13th-place finish at Chicago, combined with his 11th at Atlanta and fourth at Richmond, make three consecutive top-15 finishes for him in his first three races. 

Dover holds special meaning to the Truex family as it is close to their hometown of Mayetta, NJ. It is also the track at which the younger Truex clinched back-to-back K&N Pro Series East Championships in 2010. He is also scheduled to drive at Kansas and Phoenix later this year.

"We're excited to support Ryan and the JGR team for the NASCAR Nationwide Series in Dover this weekend," said Noel Geoffroy, Vice President of Heinz Brands. "Heinz 57 Sauce has been a part of America's mealtime since 1911, and we're thrilled to celebrate our 100th anniversary with this sponsorship."
