NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series driver Jordan Anderson will bring a new sponsor to the series this weekend and he’ll have a special friend riding along.
FirstMate Pet Foods will serve as the primary sponsor for Anderson, and his #3 Silverado at the upcoming Westgate 200 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
Anderson announced the partnership on Twitter on Monday.
How cool is this?! It’s not too often you can take your dog for a ride at 200mph.
Welcome @FirstMatePet to the team for this weekends race in Las Vegas!

In addition to the sponsorship deal, Anderon’s dog Brecks will also appear on both sides of the truck in partnership with the new sponsor.
Anderson is one of the latest drivers to bring his dog into racing – NASCAR Xfinity Series driver Chase Briscoe and his former sponsor NutriChomps put his dog Callie on the car for the season opener at Daytona last season.
The Forest Acres, South Carolina native is coming off a 23rd place finish in Bristol and is looking for a solid performance in Vegas.
The NASCAR Gander RV and Outdoors Truck Series will hit the track at Las Vegas Friday night at 9:00pm EST on FOX Sports 1 and the FOX Sports app.
