In honor of Labonte's 14th career victory, International Home Foods (IHF), makers of Chef Boyardee®, Crunch N' Munch®, Lucks® Beans and Ranch Style® Beans plan to donate several cases of their product to the Barium Springs Home for Children in Statesville, NC.

It is so important for my family and me to give back to the community as much as possible. They are the reason that I am able to do what I love."

"International Home Foods is happy to be a part of Bobby's win," said Erika Obser, Marketing Manager for IHF.
