Wiley X®, Inc. has announced its team of sponsored NASCAR drivers for 2014, and once again, it reads like a “who’s who” of America’s favorite sport. Among the Wiley X Pro Racing Team this year are proven champions, racing legends, perennial fan favorites and exciting, up-and-coming stars. One thing they all have in common — they depend on Wiley X’s Absolute Premium Protection and crystal clear vision to keep them and their teams focused on victory.
Among Wiley X’s stable of sponsored drivers are Matt Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Kevin Harvick,® Joey Logano and Greg Biffle, racers with legions of fans around the world and long lists of accomplishments to their credit. These popular drivers — along with the rest of the Wiley X Pro Racing Team — have been selected not only for their racing skills, but for their ability to serve as ambassadors for the Wiley X sunglass brand.
For 2014, Wiley X will also be sponsoring top drivers Aric Almirola, Ron Hornaday, Jr., Michael McDowell, Joe Nemechek, John Hunter Nemechek, David Ragan, Joey Coulter and Chad Hackenbracht. Fifteen-year-old racing protégé Gray Gaulding — who signed with Wiley X last year — is also an important part of the team.
In addition to sponsoring these individual drivers, Wiley X is also the Official Sunglass of NASCAR powerhouse Roush Fenway Racing, for whom both Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards drive.
Wiley X’s involvement in the NASCAR racing scene and sponsorship of these top drivers is about more than generating widespread exposure for its products through this globally popular, but uniquely American sport. It is also a great opportunity to promote the company’s proven eye protection, sense of style and sharp visual acuity under the some of the world’s most challenging conditions.
Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing occupational-grade protection for all active wearers and a wide range of activities — whether on the job, participating in outdoor sports or on the open highway. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes — a key reason why Wiley X is a leading provider of protective eyewear systems to U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical wearers worldwide.
In addition, almost every Wiley X model is Rx-ready, making Wiley X eyewear the perfect, no compromise solution for people who want the style and protection of Wiley X with a wide range of available corrective lenses.
“Our company has a long history sponsoring NASCAR drivers, but we are particularly excited about this group and the racing season ahead,” said Wiley X Co-Owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “We have very high expectations and look forward to supporting — and rooting for — our drivers as they compete on the NASCAR circuit and chase the Sprint Cup during 2014. And while there are no guarantees in the competitive world of professional auto racing, there is one thing we know for certain. Each of these athletes will represent themselves and the Wiley X brand very well.”
