Heat Wave Visual Back at California 300 as Supporting Sponsor for Second Consecutive Year

For the second consecutive year, California 300 officials are pleased to announce that Heat Wave Visual will be a supporting sponsor of the Great Golden State Off-Road Race. Heat Wave will be on hand on the start/finish line midway in Barstow during race week on October 4-8, showcasing a full line of custom sunglasses and apparel that reflect the best and boldest in off-road culture. Heat Wave will also back numerous racers competing throughout the event.

“Our relationship with Heat Wave Visual has helped us bring some of the best in off-road style to events like the California 300, and we’re excited to have them back once again this year,” said California 300 CEO Matt Martelli. “Heat Wave sunglasses are unmistakable in the paddock with some of the most unique designs on the market, and their apparel only reinforces their one-of-a-kind style. You’ll be able to check out everything they’ve got to offer on the midway in Barstow all race week long—you can’t miss it!”

Heat Wave Visual® was founded to bring something more to the table in the eyewear market. The brand sought to create an original, affordable and customizable sunglasses platform on a level never before offered.

Together we share a passion for design and customization, whether it’s wrenching on cars, bikes, websites, graphics, whipping up some art, snapping photos or even making videos, we’re creators at heart, so it was only natural that when we set out to create a brand of our own that we brought our interests with us.
