SYLVANIA SilverStar ULTRA Headlights Illuminate Roads for NASCAR Hauler Teams

Starting from early February up to late November, NASCAR drivers partake in races that are a source of entertainment for about 75 million followers annually.

Kicking off the SYLVANIA 300 race weekend, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series haulers arrived at New Hampshire Motor Speedway with headlights beaming as part of the "Hauler Headlights for Safer Nights" initiative during the speedway's FanFest celebration. SYLVANIA Automotive Lighting started the program in 2010 to promote nighttime driving safety and headlight maintenance. (PRNewsFoto/OSRAM SYLVANIA)

On or off the track, the haulers are a big hit. As per USA Today, each season hauler drivers cover about 70,000 miles transporting parts, crews, and cars all over the country.

As the sponsor of the title for SYLVANIA 300 for the 10th year in a row, OSRAM SYLVANIA is very well aware of the need for protecting hauler teams on the road. SYLVANIA Automotive Lighting¡¦s ¡§Hauler Headlights for Safer Nights¡¨ scheme has supplied NASCAR haulers with SYLVANIA SilverStar ULTRA headlights that offer more visibility and safety while driving in the night. With 20 states participating in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, manoeuvring a hauler truck from one track to another engages the complete concentration of the driver. Many drivers drive during early morning or late night hours, which make good lighting an absolute necessity. As per AAA, the maximum fatalities occur from midnight to 4 a.m. due to the high hauler traffic, which makes lighting an essential safety precaution.

SYLVANIA SilverStar ULTRA headlights give 50% more luminosity, which means 50ƒ{100 ft. more visibility during the dark night hours. Whiter and more luminous lights offer drivers more time to react to distractions or hazards by giving them more straight road and side road visibility.

The SYLVANIA 300 has the proud tradition of being one of the highest acclaimed NASCAR events telecast on national television and consistently attracts more than 100,000 people to NHMS, which is the only superspeedway as well as the biggest sporting facility in the New England area.
