Harvick’s Second Nationwide Series Win of Season Comes June 27 As He Overtakes Kyle Busch Late in Race
Wiley X® sponsored racer Kevin Harvick® recently earned his second NASCAR Nationwide Series victory of this season, passing Kyle Busch late in the June 27 race to take the checkered flag before cheering fans at Kentucky Motor Speedway.
Harvick led the race twice for a total of 14 laps, but had to regain the lead for good following a penalty re-start on Lap 196. Following the restart, Harvick’s Chevrolet shot past Busch’s Toyota on the backstretch and never looked back. The victory was Harvick’s 42nd in 302 career starts, but marked the first time he had won at Kentucky Motor Speedway since 2001.
“We’re very proud of Kevin and how he’s performed, not just in this race, but all season,” said Wiley X Co-Founder Myles Freeman, Jr. “Kevin’s a true champion, and we take pride in knowing we contribute in our own small way to his success out there,” Freeman added.
Like all the members of Wiley X’s prestigious team of NASCAR drivers, Harvick depends on the Absolute Premium Protection and sharp vision Wiley X sunglasses provide — on the track and off. Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, as well as EN.166 Standards, for true occupational-grade eye protection. The same glasses worn by these drivers are available for everyday people (who don’t drive race cars at 200 mph), providing the ultimate protection on the job, on the highway, in the city or in the great outdoors. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of protection in every product it makes —a key reason why Wiley X is a leading provider of protective sunglasses to U.S. military, law enforcement and other tactical wearers.
Almost all Wiley X models are also Rx-Ready, making these glasses an ideal choice for anybody who wants state-of-the-art protection with a wide range of prescription lens options. Wiley X DIGIFORCE™ digital Rx lens technology provides wearers with superior prescription accuracy and clarity, along with the widest possible field of vision.
