Spy Optic Again Dominates Premier Monster Energy Supercross Class @ A3Tuesday, February 5, 2008 | 6:35 AM
With Windham, Short & Wey Spy Optic has more racers in the top ten than any other brand!
CARLSBAD, Calif., (Feb. 5, 2008) – Led by a 4th/5th finish from Kevin Windham (Torco/Honda) and Andrew Short (Honda), along with Nick Wey’s (MDK/KTM) 8th place finish, Spy Optic again had more premier Supercross class racers running its goggles in the top ten than any other brand this past Saturday at Anaheim’s (Calif.) Angel Stadium, Round Five of 2008 Monster Energy AMA Supercross, an FIM World Championship.
“With all the rain we’ve had it was necessary to bring in a bunch of sand to help absorb the water at Anaheim this past weekend,” explained Spy Optic spokesman Jeremy “Showtime” McGrath, the all- time winningest AMA Supercross racer ever. “And believe me, nothing is worse than catching a face full of sand roost and having it get into your eyes. That happens and you’re about finished.”
Well-protected with their Spy Optic Magneto goggles, featuring the Triple Layer Isotron™ Face Foam to keep out the sand and Scoop® Ventilation kept the goggles from fogging up, Windham, Short and Wey hammered away at the competition – all of them having to deal with curtains of sand roost being kicked up by both lappers and the guys they were chasing at numerous points around the track.
“It was burly out there,” said Wey. “You’d go from having your head down in a sand section straight into slot car track ruts. Vision was crucial at A3 and my Spy Magnetos were on it.”
Added Windham: “Short of a full-on mudder, sand is about the most difficult thing your goggles are up against. And my Spys came through for me again this weekend in Anaheim.”
In the Lites class, running the Spy Optic Alloy goggles, it was Torco/ Honda’s Dan Reardon who led the Spy Optic charge. Reardon finished a respectable 8th place overall..
Next up for the Spy Optic racers on the Monster Energy Supercross tour is the San Diego/Qualcomm Stadium round this weekend (Feb. 9).
