Wiley X Driver Kevin Harvick Wows with Fifth Win of the Season at Kansas Speedway
Livermore, CA (May 17, 2018) - Wiley X®, the leader and innovator in premium protective eyewear, is delighted to celebrate Kevin Harvick’s win at Kansas Speedway and his record-setting start to the NASCAR Season.
The Wiley X-sponsored Harvick surged past Martin Truex Jr. with one lap to go Saturday night at Kansas Speedway, winning for the fifth time this season, in what has turned out to be a record-setting start to the year.
Nobody had ever won five of the first 12 races in NASCAR's top series.
"Man, that was wild the last few laps," said Harvick, who deftly dodged a couple late-race cautions, then used four fresh tires to roar to the front on the final restart with 10 laps remaining.
“We here at Wiley X could not be more excited for Kevin to get his fifth record setting win of the season," said Myles Freeman, President of Sales for and Co-Owner of Wiley X. "In fact, we’re speechless after having witnessed Wiley X drivers winning 8 of the first 12 races so far this season! We can only hope this trend continues and wish Harvick and his team the all our talented drivers the best of luck at the Charlotte Motor Speedway next Saturday night for the All-Star Race.”
