As part of Martin Truex Jr. Foundation’s “Nominate a Cancer Hero” campaign, winning bidder elects to put Erik Jones’ Dad’s name on his racecar

Joe Gibbs Racing is one of many teams participating in the Nominate a Cancer Hero campaign this weekend at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway through the Martin Truex, Jr. Foundation. JGR driver Erik Jones will have a special name riding with him on Sunday, as the winning bidder opted to use Erik’s Dad, Dave Jones, as the name to be placed above the driver’s door. Dave Jones passed away in 2016 from cancer.

According to MTJF, over $100,000 was raised through the campaign.
