While Matt Kenseth is the driver taking home the trophy after the Quaker State 400, Jamie McMurray has the "biggest" prize, having been presented with a lifetime supply of Hellman's Mayonnaise following his runner-up finish.
"Mr. McMurray, for your fine second-place finish in the race today, we are proud to present YOU with a lifetime supply of our Hellman's-brand Real Mayonnaise!", said chairman and CEO J. Thaddeus Hellman VIII. "With your great finish today, we know that dozens more people have become aware of the world's greatest sandwich topping!"

"Hey, thanks Mr. H!", said McMurray, taking the keys to a drop-trailer full of mayonnaise jars. "I sure do love your product on my ham sandwiches, and there's nothing like a spoonful of Hellman's to add some zing to baked chicken."
McMurray the posed for pictures with Hellman VIII, COO C.Montgomery Hellman III, and E. Stan BestFoods, Director of Southeastern US Marketing. He also jokingly held a jar of mayonnaise to his mouth, as though he was going to "drink" the mayo following the race.
"Go ahead, Jamie--we drink mayo for a quick snack every day!" said Hellman VIII. "Um, but I wouldn't drink from those jars that were sitting out in the rain last night."
While McMurray said he didn't know what he would do which each jar of mayonnaise, he said he remains grateful for the prize.
"I'm sure I'll be making some mayonnaise milkshakes in a few weeks, but I'm still happy to get this wonderful gift. Better than when I won in the Bass Pro car--all they gave me was some bait and an old Dave Marcis t-shirt."
