"I'm excited that Ortho has come on board for this weekend's Craftsman Truck Series race," said Edwards. "The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company has sponsored me since 2004, and I'm really happy the opportunity to get back in the truck for a race came about with them. It would be pretty cool if Mark Martin and I could put the Scotts and Ortho trucks at the front of the field on Friday night."

Jeff Keyser, Vice President for Ortho Marketing at The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company echoed Edwards' excitement.

"Ortho Season-Long Grass and Weed Killer is proud to team up again with Carl Edwards and the No. 50 Team in Dover. Weeds are a real problem for consumers right now and this is the perfect time to get them under control. Just one application of Ortho Season-Long not only kills existing weeds, but also prevents new weeds for the entire season-- which should give fans more time to enjoy racing on weekends!"

Edwards last raced in the Craftsman Truck Series in 2004, when he competed in the season-ending Ford 200 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Edwards, who has six wins in 57 Craftsman Truck Series starts, will attempt to make his third career Craftsman Truck Series start at Dover.
