KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—Because good times with family and friends are a big part of summer, Pilot Flying J is teaming up with HEINZ and Oscar Mayer Foodservice to recognize the all-American hotdog and the moments that bring people together, according to the Murfreesboro Post.

From July 13 through Aug. 10, fans are encouraged to post a photo sharing a moment or memory with loved ones while enjoying hot dogs. Simply post the photo on Twitter or Instagram and include "#ShareADogSweepstakes" and tag @PilotFlyingJ.

Ten lucky "wieners" will be notified via Twitter or Instagram on or around Aug. 11, 2021, that they’ll be receiving a $500 Pilot Flying J gift card. The celebration continues on National Hot Dog Day, Wednesday, July 21, with a free hot dog at Pilot Flying J. Download or open the myRewards Plus app for an exclusive offer on July 21 and redeem for one free roller grill item, including 100% all-beef Oscar Mayer Foodservice hot dogs, at participating Pilot or Flying J Travel Centers.

Guests can top their dogs with their favorite HEINZ condiments, or try a new HEINZ Dip Cup of sauce, in flavors ranging from Barbecue and Ranch to Sweet & Sour and Honey Mustard. "This year, it's such a great feeling to enjoy being with family and friends that we haven't seen in a while," says Brian Ferguson, chief merchant, Pilot Flying J. "Nothing says summertime quite like a backyard BBQ or a road trip with loved ones and an Oscar Mayer hot dog, especially a free one."

To top off the celebration with extra relish, the iconic Oscar Mayer Wienermobile will make appearances at two Pilot Flying J locations in Newark and Carney's Point, N.J., on  July 21 and 26, respectively. Each Wienermobile is piloted by a team of Hotdoggers, who buckle their "meatbelts" and travel in the giant rolling hot dog to spread miles of smiles to fans everywhere. Today, the giant hot dog on wheels can be measured as 60 hot dogs long and 24 hots dogs high (which is 27 feet long and 11 feet tall).
