Carlsbad, CA—Tuesday, August 24, 2010—The SPY family is pleased to congratulate and celebrate SPY's legendary MC "King of Supercross," seven-time AMA Supercross Champion Jeremy McGrath as he will be inducted into The Twenty Second Annual Motorsports Hall of Fame of America. MC will accept this honor at The Fillmore in Detroit, Michigan, on Wednesday evening, August 25, 2010.
Jeremy has been an ambassador and a huge part of the SPY brand since 1995 and continues to push SPY to the next level. His vibrant energy, charisma and talent are unmatched and we're amped to go full throttle for 2011 by celebrating MC's 11th SPY signature moto goggle.
With the September release of the "Throwback MC11" in the Klutch model, SPY is thrilled to have its favorite son honored in the Motorsports Hall of Fame. Jeremy's 11th signature goggle features a triple row silicone, black face fleece, green vent covers, a signature MC print on the smoke with green mirror lens and to top it all off includes a free bonus lens! Jeremy's retro design was inspired by his first SPY MX goggle season that put him on track for fame and for the world to welcome his greatness with open arms.
Jeremy never ceases to amaze us and we are proud to join with him the highest honor Motorsports has to offer.
Stay tuned for full coverage as Fuel TV will be filming his special induction into an episode of FIRST HAND.
Spy Optic was created by a passionate group of action sports and motorsports enthusiasts who quickly attracted the attention of the world's best athletes. Based in Southern California, at the crossroads of an emerging Action Sports culture in the mid-nineties, the SPY brand was born. The Cross, a symbol commonly used to denote faith, is for SPY a signal rather than a symbol. Representing our unique position as a nexus entity immersed in Boardsports, Motorsports, Fashion and Culture, SPY is the Brand that invites the world to "Live Thru Our Lens."
The SPY brand has supplied not only the fashion to suit your passion; it has been a market leader in eyewear related technology. The Spy Scoop® venting system combats lens fogging by promoting airflow between the lens and the wearer's face. Spy's polarization treatments supersede existing eyewear standards with its premium injected Trident polarized lenses. The lenses effectively eliminate more than 99 percent of blinding glare for precise, unobstructed vision. Look for SPY to keep pushing the boundaries for both taste & technology!
