NASCAR drivers and their sunglasses

We have had quite a few people contact us regarding what brand of sunglasses NASCAR drivers wear. Most of the NASCAR market is covered by high-end brands, such as Oakley, Electric and Wiley X. One thing you must remember is that these drivers are paid to wear certain brands of sunglasses via high-dollar endorsements and free swag. The most common question we have received is: What kind of sunglasses does Joey Logano wear? As always, we would like to keep you up to tune with true NASCAR fashion!
Joey Logano, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle, Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, Mark Martin, David Ragan and Aric Almirola are just a few of the drivers that are sponsored by WileyX.

Some drivers have their own signature specially-made Oakley branded frames. A few of them include: Kasey Kahne, Ricky Carmichael, Juan Pablo Montoya, Tony Stewart, Jamie McMurray, Brian Vickers, Elliot Sadler and J.J. Yelley.

Last year both Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Martin Truex Jr. were sponsored by Spy Optic Sunglasses but I couldn't find confirmation that it continued through 2009.

One of the most noticed pair of sunglasses in the NASCAR garage would be those of Kyle Busch. Kyle sports his oversize Electric frames by leaving the plastic sticker on the lens. He is also the only driver sponsored by Electric.If I were a NASCAR driver, I would hope that Chanel or Tom Ford would sponsor me. That would be heaven!

I never noticed that Kyle leaves the sticker on his glasses. I think I'm always too distracted by the Jackie-O look he's sporting.

It never dawned on me, but I do remember seeing those cling stickers on the shades of Shrubby. Is he sponsored by "UV Block" as well?
