lying Eyes to partner with Cody Coughlin for the 2018 NASCAR Camping World Truck Series (NCWTS) season by bringing high-performance sunglasses to the NASCAR community, and fans; eyewear designed and engineered to fit comfortably under the pressure of a headset with high-grade polycarbonate lenses with optical clarity, UV400 filtering, and impact resistance.

"Cody Coughlin is the perfect ambassador for the Flying Eyes’ brand and we are grateful for his ongoing support,” Dean Siracusa, founder and president of Flying Eyes, said. “We are honored to partner with name that represents quality and performance—traits we embrace.”

Coughlin made Champion Racing Association (CRA) history during the 2016 season, as the first driver ever to win both the ARCA/CRA Super Series, his first championship in that series, and the JEGS/CRA All-Stars Tour championship in the same season.

In 2017, Coughlin competed full-time in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series, Coughlin will run for a second full-time season in 2018 for the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series championship.

Flying Eyes’ take on sunglasses is definitely needed in motorsports,” Cody Coughlin said. “They work perfectly with headsets; giving spotters an advantage when they need to focus with out distractions.”

Micro-thin temples measuring 1mm thin, made with Resilamide™—an aerospace polymer, are both rugged and flexible. The thin design explicitly inhibits noise leaks when worn with a headset; the flexibility eliminates pressure pain caused from traditional sunglasses.

I’ve been flying airplanes for almost 20 years,” Siracusa said. “As a pilot, you want to minimize all distractions; the same goes for racing. Sunglasses should be seen, not felt.”

Originally designed for the aviation market and according to top aviation publications, Flying Eyes is recognized as the sunglasses of choice for pilots. Now entering the motorsports market, the company’s partnership with Cody Coughlin is the perfect segue because of the association with JEGS Automotive, Inc., and GMS Racing.

“Because of our commitment to quality and high performance, we provide products that serve specific needs to the racing community,” John Coughlin, president and co-owner of JEGS Automotive, Inc. said. “Flying Eyes are more than just sunglasses; a tool used by spotters and crew chiefs so they can focus on improving their teams’ performance.”

Because of this partnership, Flying Eyes sunglasses are now available at
