We are very honored to have teamed up with Chad Boespflug Racing for the 2013 season! This is a video we put together for y'all to take a glimpse into a sprint car race for those who have never seen one. I shot the footage in the pits and then ran down to the center of the racetrack (wont do that again) to shoot some of the race. Man, my heart was pounding and I had a hard time holding the camera steady with a flock of 800+ horsepower sprint cars shooting by. It's going to be a great season! Enjoy the video!

Had a blast at this past weekends Cavalcade of Customs car show in Cincinnati hanging out with Chad Boespflug Racing while he unveiled his 2013 graphics! The show was a great success. In addition to selling a bunch of shades, we got to meet a ton of cool folk and win a couple awards for our whips. Great time, already looking forward to next years show.

We were lucky enough to sneep a couple pairs of Midwest Shades finest in our buddy Ritchy Tauzon's suitcase before he set off to paradise and boy was it a good idea. Ritchy is a ninja when it comes to capturing the potential of a photo opportunity. Here is the perfect example. This picture of a crispy pair of "Frank the Tank - Green Swag" is about as cool as they come. Ritchy is making some big moves in the photography world and we are stoked to have teamed up with such a telented dude.

This picture is of a fresh pair of "Baconator - Silver" $12.
