Matt Kenseth to Drive Specially Decked-Out No.17 Ford Fusion for Roush Fenway Racing At Two Upcoming NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Events in South Carolina and Delaware
LIVERMORE, CA — Wiley X® Eyewear’s successful NASCAR sponsorship program has switched into high gear with today’s announcement of the No. 17 Wiley X Sunglasses Ford Fusion.
This car will be driven by perennial crowd favorite, and 2003 Sprint Cup Series Champion, Matt Kenseth from Roush Fenway Racing and will make its nationwide debut Saturday, May 7th in the Showtime Southern 500 at South Carolina’s historic Darlington Raceway.
Kenseth will also drive this special paint scheme on Sunday, May 17th as he tries to win the Fed Ex 400 benefitting Autism Speaks at Dover International Speedway in Delaware.
“We’re ecstatic to be the primary sponsor on Matt Kenseth’s No. 17 Ford Fusion for not one, but, two races in the month of May,” said President of Sales and Co-Owner, Myles J. Freeman.
“To think that Wiley X will be exploited on the national stage is a tribute to how far we’ve come and a sincere show of support for our massive dealer network and our Armed Forces who make us proud around the globe. To them, we are forever grateful.”
Large Wiley X Eyewear logos will be featured prominently on the Ford Fusion race car, perfectly complimenting the vehicle’s black/red/white color scheme. The words “Wiley X Sunglass Machine” are emblazoned in large letters across the rear of the car — a view Kenseth hopes to show competitors as he fights for the checkered flag at these two events.
