The Driver Suit Blog-Looking at a NASCAR Whelen All-American Series Crew Shirt

By David G. Firestone

Founded in 1982, as the NASCAR Winston Racing Series, The NASCAR Advance Auto Parts Weekly Series is a short track series. The races all take place at short tracks, ranging from 1/4 mile to 5/8 miles. While some drivers go on to national series stardom, some are just weekend warriors. The kinds of cars allowed to race are left to the discretion of the tracks, leading to a lot of variety in the series.

From 2006 to 2019, The Whelen Engineering Company, known for making warning lights, white illumination lighting, sirens, and controllers for cars, aviation, and civil defense, signed on to sponsor the series. The series became the Whelen All-American Series, at some point, a series official was assigned this shirt. This Oakley shirt shows some wear, with stains.

The green collar is unadorned.

There is an Oakley 5XL size and wash tag sewn in the cowl.

The right chest features a pocket.

The left chest features a NASCAR WHELEN ALL-AMERICAN SERIES logo, and OFFICIAL embroidered.

The front torso of the shirt features some light stains.

The shoulders have epaulets which feature the old NASCAR logo embroidered on the green.

The right sleeve features an Oakley logo, a NASCAR WHELEN ALL-AMERICAN SERIES logo, and OFFICIAL embroidered.

The left sleeve has an American Flag, a NASCAR WHELEN ALL-AMERICAN SERIES logo, and OFFICIAL embroidered.

The back of the shirt doesn’t show any wear.

The back of the neck is unadorned, but there is a small Oakley logo embroidered.

The back of the shirt has OFFICIAL embroidered in white on green, and a NASCAR WHELEN ALL-AMERICAN SERIES logo embroidered in the white.

So for July, I will be taking my yearly sabbatical, and I will have two Friday Features ready to go.
