NASCAR caps are a standard uniform for fans and crew. Team members often wear NASCAR caps during the day and fans wear them to connect with their driver’s sponsors. But the most important display of the baseball NASCAR caps occurs in Victory Lane after a race. Here in a highly orchestrated set of moves, crew members and the winning driver don a series of caps to honor the sponsors that helped get them into Victory Lane.
William Byron’s NASCAR Caps
This month William Byron won his second race of the short season and was excited to drive up onto Victory Lane surrounded by fans, photographers, news media, and public relations folk. The PR folk tote along plastic bags carrying the caps in sequential order that the team members will soon be wearing. Can you imagine the work involved each week lining up and organizing the caps, only to then see your driver not win the race?
Crew Members Need NASCAR Caps Too
Byron started out with a big cap from Valvoline as a cute gimmick and then swapped to a regular sized Valvoline cap along with his crew members. And there is a lot of crew that show up in Victory Lane beside the pit crew. Jeff Gordon even showed up to lead on the celebration and so he needed caps too. So yes, one more thing the PR folks need to account for- making sure they have enough sets of hats.
After that, the excited crew swapped to a United Rentals 500 cap to honor the race sponsorship.
Then they swapped to a NASCAR 75th anniversary cap.
Followed by a Valvoline cap again!
Yes Even More NASCAR Caps on Display
Axalta is a major sponsor for Byron, so of course the paint company had their chance in the limelight with their own hat.
Liberty University has been a long-term sponsor for William Byron so those caps were worn as well
Can’t forget your car manufacturer so the Chevrolet bow tie showed up on a cap as well.
Hendrick Motor Sports had to have their cap on display as well
Cincinnati Tools were the final caps to be worn and then the crew really got to celebrate. William Byron had a chance to thank others and mingle, obviously happy with his second win of the season at Phoenix Raceway. Wonder how many more times he will slide into Victory Lane with a bevy of NASCAR caps to wear?
