TAG Heuer Eyewear Introduces Squadra Night Vision Glasses

Stylish, contrast-enhancing eyewear is no longer limited to daylight hours. TAG Heuer Avant-Garde Eyewear has created Squadra Night Vision – the world’s first ophthalmic mask made specifically for night driving. This high-performance eyewear combines proven technologies for ergonomics and comfort, with contrast-increasing lenses to enhance night-driving safety. Utilizing patented technology, TAG Heuer Night Vision is the first in the world to provide a correction for “universal nocturnal myopia” – the tendency of human eyes to lose sharp distance viewing at night – while better distinguishing contrasts in the dark, reducing eye fatigue. The Squadra Night Vision’s innovative design and performance has received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award from among 4000 entries from 40 countries.

The Squadra Night Vision eyewear fits comfortably and securely with a flexible titanium inner arm, overmolded by a hard outer elastomere and a soft composite inner rubber. Ideal for under-the-helmet wear, TAG Heuer was the 2010 Official Partner to record-breaking motor-racing team Audi Sport, who swept the podium at the 78th edition of 24 Hours of Le Mans while wearing Squadra Night Vision glasses. Squadra is also the preferred eyewear of the 2004 NASCAR Cup Champion, Kurt Busch.

By working with professional drivers like these, TAG Heuer has perfected its Night Vision lenses to offer constant clear, sharp vision that maximizes performance from dusk to dawn. Now, you don’t have to be a professional driver to benefit from Squadra Night Vision. The new TAG Heuer Squadra Night Vision collection is available at authorized retailers nationwide. Shields are available in two shapes and offer a combined black and yellow temple.

TAG Heuer – maker of high-end sports watches and chronographs since 1860 – has been applying the same standards for design and quality found in their timepieces to the creation of exceptional eyewear since 2002. All TAG Heuer “Avant-Garde” Eyewear lenses are shatter-resistant, ultra-light and provide 100% UV-A and UV-B protection. TAG Heuer Eyewear is available at authorized retailers nationwide.

Thunder Road’s 49th Season

The 49th season of racing at Thunder Road International Speedbowl got underway yesterday as cars revved their engines and fans streamed through the doors to witness this great event. According to Ken Squirer, the co-owner of Thunder Road, auto racing is still the “largest spectator sport” in this particular state. Short track racing plays a key role in this and the quarter-mile oval track Thunder Road is the perfect place to get the season underway.

Races kicked off yesterday with a burst of speed as rubber was shredded on this short track for the first time this year. The main event of the day was the Merchants Bank 150. This race marks the third event in the 12-race schedule of the American-Canadian Late Model Tour. Other divisions that raced included the Junkyard Warrior, Street Stock and Tiger Sportsman divisions. From the start the race looked poised to unleash some exhilarating action as teen Joey Polewarczyk Jr. got ready to start from first place with the 165 points he’d gathered during the season opener earlier at Lee USA Speedway. He faced stiff competition from drivers Cris Michaud, Patrick Laperle, John Donahue and Brent Dragon. These drivers are followed up by legendary greats Scott Payea and Jean Paul-Cyr. Payea, who took off from seventh place, is the defending champion of the Merchants Bank 150. Jean Paul-Cyr, at eighth place, is also no blow-over with six ACT championships under his belt.

Three-time champion of the Thunder Road track Cris Michaud, noted that the new racing schedule that has been set up makes it very tempting for drivers such as himself to run fulltime on the ACT during the summer months ahead. However, he noted that Thunder Road was his first priority and he certainly seemed ready for action at the track yesterday.

Clearly this year’s racing season is off to a good start, but it will not be ending here. The four different divisions of racing will continue to take place regularly at Thunder Road throughout the summer. The wildly popular Thursday night races will start on June 12 and end on September 28 with the massive Milk Bowl race. With the excellent start to the season that took place last night, it certainly looks as if fans can expect to enjoy an excellent racing season this year.
