War Wizard and Aaron’s World’s Fastest Monster Truck to Race With Wiley X Protection
Wiley X, Inc.’s battlefield-proven protective sunglasses have taken on life’s biggest challenges – from professional bass fishing to the NASCAR circuit to NHRA drag racing. Now they’re ready to face the spectacle that is the Monster Jam series, joining forces with fan-favorite driver Randy Moore and his War Wizard Racing and Motorsports Displays monster truck teams.
Wiley X will be front and center on two of the sport’s most “eye-catching” monster machines during this series of nationally televised events, each reaching an estimated 70 million viewers. Through this new partnership, Moore’s entire team will protect their eyes with stylish Wiley X glasses and their hands with Wiley X gloves as they race and compete across the country. The next event will be the Night of Fire Thrill Show, August 10 in Norwalk, Ohio, featuring a Guinness Book of World Records race that could re-write the record books.
Wiley X logos will be featured on Moore’s 10,000-pound monster truck War Wizard, recently honored as one of the sport’s five best looking monster trucks. Styled in the image of a 1941 Willy’s coupe, this monster truck features brilliant colors, bold wizard graphics and four awe inspiring 1,700-pound tires.
Moore’s Motorsports Displays team also races the Aaron’s All American Dream Machine monster truck, currently the record holder as the World’s Fastest Monster Truck. This bold American-themed truck recently set a new monster truck speed record of 96.80 miles per hour and an elapsed time of 13.175 seconds over the quarter mile. Moore plans to defend his title at the upcoming event on August 10, in front of thousands of fans at Summit Raceway Park in Ohio and millions on television, and he’ll do so boasting bold new Wiley X graphics.
“Monster truck events are gaining in popularity across the country and around the world, and we’re proud to be associated with one of its top performers,” said Wiley X co-owner Myles Freeman, Jr. “These events combine elements of racing and showmanship in an exciting, action-packed spectacle for the whole family. These drivers and their amazing machines are a great match for the absolute premium protection provided by Wiley X sunglasses,” Freeman added.
Wiley X offers men and women a full array of stylish models, each with protection that goes far beyond the harmful rays of the sun. Every pair of Wiley X sunglasses meets stringent ANSI Z87.1 High Velocity and High Mass Impact Safety standards, providing OSHA-grade protection for all wearers and a wide range of activities. Wiley X is the only premium sunglass brand with this level of vision protection in every pair of glasses it makes. Selected Wiley X models also meet the updated MIL-PRF-32432 (GL) MCEP Standard (superseding the GL-PD 10-12 MCEP Standard) for combat protective eyewear. This level of proven protection is a key reason why Wiley X is a leading provider of protective eyewear to U.S. military units around the world.
The Wiley X line includes many exciting new models for 2013 sure to thrill monster truck enthusiasts, including the changeable series WX Saint, the stylish new Street Series WX Static, and stealthy, polarized “Black Ops” editions of its popular WX Censor, WX Twisted and WX Valor models. In addition, most Wiley X sunglass styles are Rx ready, making them a great choice for motorsports fans that wear corrective lenses.
