Jordan Anderson’s NASCAR Trucks ride will be in FirstMate Pet Food colors this weekend.

Jordan Anderson is a fan favorite in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series, and his self-owned No. 3 Chevrolet Silverado will be one to watch this weekend as it’s wrapped in a snazzy new paint scheme in FirstMate Pet Food colors, with Pet Partners as an associate sponsor.

Even better for a race happening during National Dog Week, Anderson’s truck will have his Goldendoodle Brecks along for the ride, as the year-old pup is prominently featured where the back seat would be in a normal passenger truck.

The scheme is mostly black with royal blue trim, and a brighter red number, which should look fantastic under the lights of Las Vegas Motor Speedway for the World of Westgate 200 on Friday, September 25 (9 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1).

This news was previously posted on the stock car database Jayski.

“To have my buddy Brecks smiling beside the FirstMate logo, riding with us on the side of the truck is going to be really cool,” Anderson said in a press release. “He was so happy to be in the race shop this week helping us prepare the truck to make sure everything was done right and keep us company.”

“We’re hoping to make all the pet owners out there proud during the race and bring home a great finish,” Anderson continued.

FirstMate is a Canadian company based in the Vancouver suburb of Chilliwack, British Columbia, and they have been making high-fat, high-protein, non-GMO pet food since 1989.

Anderson has made his NASCAR career in the Double-A level Truck Series, starting in late 2014 and beginning his own team in 2018. He also has 13 starts in the Triple-A level Xfinity Series from 2015 to 2017.

A scrappy underdog who pulls out top-20 results frequently despite a fraction of the budget and resources of the big teams, Anderson nearly won a drag race to the finish line at Daytona this February, narrowly losing to Grant Enfinger, who drives for the powerhouse ThorSport Racing stable.

Anderson is currently 19th in the NGOTS driver standings through 17 races, and the JAR No. 3 is currently 25th in the NGOTS owner standings.

Next. NASCAR's Matt DiBenedetto's dog Brian is a very good racer dog. dark
