Wiley X Inks Sponsorship Deal With NASCAR’s Tony Stewart





(Press Release)
Protective eyewear maker Wiley X has announced its new sponsorship agreement with renowned auto racer Tony Stewart, who will be wearing and representing Wiley X eyewear throughout the 2016 NASCAR season.

“There are few true legends in any sport, and Tony is certainly one of them,” says Wiley X co-owner and avid racing fan Myles Freeman Jr. “He’s risen to the top at every level of the sport, and we couldn’t be more excited about working together with Tony during the coming racing season.”

Stewart begins the 2016 Sprint Cup campaign on the injured list, but is expected to return to action soon. His career includes success as both a driver and owner of the Stewart-Haas Racing team, with 12 driver championships dating back to the first time he raced a go-kart at a Westport, Indiana racetrack. Stewart is the first and only driver to have won championships behind the wheel of stock cars, Indy cars and open-wheel Midget, Sprint and Silver Crown Cars. His three NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championships place him among only nine drivers who have notched three or more Cup titles.

As a new member of Wiley X’s team of sponsored drivers, Stewart will be in the company of other racers from the circuit. For 2016, Wiley X is continuing its partnerships with top drivers such as recent Sprint Cup Champion Kevin Harvick, Carl Edwards and Joey Logano. Other notable drivers partnering with the company include Matt Kenseth, Joe Nemechek, David Ragan, Gray Gaulding, Timothy Peters, Cole Custer, John Hunter Nemechek, Michael McDowell and Austin Theriault.

Every adult Wiley X sunglass meets ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety Standards for OSHA-rated vision protection. Several models also meet U.S. military MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) standards for ballistic eye protection, a key reason why the company is a longtime provider of vision protection gear to the U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical users.
