Wiley X Sponsored Driver Joey Logano Excels At Watkins Glen, Winning Nascar Xfinity Series And Sprint Cup Series Races Back-To-Back

Wiley X Sponsored Driver Joey Logano Excels At Watkins Glen, Winning Nascar Xfinity Series And Sprint Cup Series Races Back-To-Back

Joey Logano had himself a great weekend August 8-9 at Watkins Glen Raceway in New York, winning the NASCAR XFinity Series Race on Saturday, then following that up with a thrilling last-lap victory at the Sprint Cup Series Cheez-It 355 on Sunday. It was a wild finish to the Sprint Cup Series race, as Logano never led the race until literally the very end. Fellow Wiley X driver Kevin Harvick® was comfortably in the lead and trying to conserve fuel to make it to the end of the race. Logano knew this, and was pushing him as hard as he could throughout the final lap to make Harvick use more fuel than he wanted. The strategy worked, as Logano shot past Harvick at the last minute to take the checkered flag. Harvick coasted to the finish line on fumes, still taking third place. Fellow team Wiley X racer Matt Kenseth finished fourth behind Harvick, and Carl Edwards, also sponsored by Wiley X, finished in eighth place — giving Wiley X an impressive four racers in the Top 10. Interestingly, this was the second consecutive week where a NASCAR race was won in this fashion. Last week at Pocono, Kyle Busch ran out of gas on the final lap and Matt Kenseth passed him for the win. Logano’s last-lap...

Wiley X®-Sponsored Kevin Harvick® Wins 2014 Sprint Cup Series Championship

Wiley X®-Sponsored Kevin Harvick® Wins 2014 Sprint Cup Series Championship

Wiley X®-sponsored NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick® has earned his first Sprint Cup Series Championship, doing so by racing two back-to-back victories on consecutive weekends. First, Harvick had to win the Quicken Loans for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Speedway last Sunday just to earn a spot among the “final four” drivers competing for the Cup. Then, Harvick had to show his skills and nerves of steel by passing driver after driver in the final laps to win the season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway November 16. This win definitely didn’t come easy — and this made it a fitting way to be crowned the “best of the best” for 2014. Harvick was in 12th position on a restart with 15 laps to go, and quickly passed four cars to move to seventh place. Another caution flag followed, and Harvick’s earlier decision to get four new tires paid off handsomely. He shot through the middle on the restart and quickly picked up four spots to move into second place behind Denny Hamlin, also in the running for the championship. Harvick eventually passed Hamlin and held off a challenge from Ryan Newman (also one of the four Cup finalists), who eventually finished second. Joey Logano, also...

Wiley X®-Sponsored Driver One of Just Four Racers Left With Chance to  Be Crowned Champion Next Week in Florida

Wiley X®-Sponsored Driver One of Just Four Racers Left With Chance to Be Crowned Champion Next Week in Florida

Wiley X®-sponsored NASCAR driver Kevin Harvick® dominated the track at the Quicken Loans Race for Heroes 500 at Phoenix International Speedway on Sunday, November 9. While the victory gave Harvick a season sweep at the track and was his fourth win in his last five races there, this victory was particularly rewarding for another very important reason. By taking Sunday’s checkered flag under the bright Phoenix sun, Harvick survived the Chase for the Sprint Cup Eliminator Round and will move on to next week’s Chase for the Sprint Cup championship race at Florida’s Homestead-Miami Speedway. Four drivers — Harvick, Joey Logano (also sponsored by Wiley X), Denny Hamlin and Ryan Newman — will compete for the Sprint Cup title. The highest finishing driver at Homestead-Miami next Sunday will be crowned champion and claim the 2015 series title. Dozens of drivers begin each season as legitimate contenders in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, a prize that requires sustained success, amazing focus and admittedly, a little bit of luck. After a series of Qualifying and Eliminator Round races, the field is now down to four racers, representing the best of the best. “This is so exciting, that...

Wiley X®-Sponsored Driver Joey Logano Wins At Kansas Speedway, Becomes Driver To Beat For Chase For The Sprint Cup Championship

Just how hot is Wiley X® sponsored NASCAR driver Joey Logano right now? That’s a question that might not be fully answered until the dust has settled and a final Chase for the Sprint Cup champion has been crowned for 2014. But for now, it will have to suffice to say that he’s pretty hot — and making a strong case for himself as the driver other racers will have to beat if they want the crown. The 24-year old racing phenomenon took another huge step towards NASCAR’s ultimate accomplishment, winning the Hollywood Casino 400 at Kansas Speedway on Sunday, October 5. The victory — Logano’s career-best fifth of the season — earned him an automatic berth in the third round of the Chase For the Sprint Cup championship. With the win, Logano can breath a little easier over the next two upcoming Contender Round races taking place at Charlotte and Talladega. After Talladega, the remaining qualifiers will move on to the Eliminator Round, a three-race run-off that will narrow the field to four drivers leading up to an eventual winner-takes-all finale at Homestead Miami Speedway. Logano has earned his enviable position by dominating the competition over recent weeks. In the first four...

Wiley X® sponsored racer Joey Logano put another notch on what has been undoubtedly his strongest NASCAR season, driving his #22 Team Penske Ford to the checkered flag at Saturday night’s race at Bristol Motor Speedway, a challenging track that bills itself as the “world’s fastest half-mile.” Logano surged past Matt Kenseth (also a Team Wiley X driver) with 44 laps to go and held off challenges from second-place finisher (and Penske teammate) Brad Keselowski and Kenseth, who eventually finished third. The 24-year-old budding superstar earned a slew of significant milestones on this night. The win marked Logano’s first victory at Bristol Motor Speedway, his third victory of the 2014 season, and the first time he has won more than one race in a season.

Wiley X Sponsored NASCAR Driver Aric Almirola Wins at Daytona

Eyewear innovator Wiley X® is proud to sponsor top NASCAR racers like Aric Almirola, and was especially proud this past weekend to watch Almirola earn his first Sprint Cup Series victory at the heralded Daytona International Speedway. Almirola drove the Richard Petty Racing No. 43 US Air Force Ford Fusion to the win. In addition to battling an assemblage of the world’s best drivers equally determined in pursuit of victory, Almirola had to overcome four rain delays and multiple big wrecks to come out on top. In what was a rare occurrence at Daytona, the race was finally called due to rain on Lap 112 of 160, with Almirola out in front of the pack. Mother Nature may have waved the checkered flag, but Almirola earned every bit of the hard-fought victory. He commented during post-race interviews that it felt especially good to earn his first Sprint Cup win on his “home track” in Florida, where he grew up sitting in the grandstands watching Daytona 500s and Firecracker 400s. “Man, I just took the No. 43 car to Victory Lane at Daytona!” said an excited Almirola. The victory puts Almirola and Richard Petty Racing in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “We’re...
