Default Erin Crocker wears glasses.

Erin Crocker is the first race car driver I've ever seen wearing glasses (post race interviews).

Does she wear glasses during the race?

I assume there must be some drivers who wear contacts.
But she was wearing regular glasses - they actually looked like reading glasses but she wasn't reading, she was giving interviews.

Bobby Rahal used to race in glasses. Greg Moore, too, I think. Can't think of any Cup guys, though.

Part of what I was curious about - I'd heard once that pilots must have 20-20 vision without glasses. Don't know if this is true.

So I'd wondered if race car drivers have to have 20/20 vision without glasses. Not so, based on my seeing Crocker, plus h_upmann's response.

I am a pilot, that is definately not true. That used to be true for the military which is where almost all pilots were trained 20 years ago or so and still a majority today are.

The Air Force recruiter told me 20/20 uncorrected was required for Air Force pilots. That was in 1991.

Due to the heat, I'd think the glasses would or could get fogged up, which of course would be a disaster.
I know that oxygen is blown into the helmets. Perhaps that keeps it from fogging.

Evernham is no dummy. He knows guys don't try passes on girls who wear glasses.

But seriously folks, I think the pressure on NASCAR to find their Danica is huge. It might be Erin, but they shouldn't force the issue.

I agree that the first young woman to have a halfway decent run in Nascar will get incredible pr, and the big bucks sponsorship that comes with it.

If the young woman is sexy, the sky's the limit.

Kenny Wallace made a brutally honest comment on one of the Nascar TV shows recently, about 6 weeks or so before Kyle Busch's first Nascar win.
Re: Kyle Busch, after one of his top 5 finishes, Wallace said "If he was better looking he'd already be a superstar."

This is not an obsession of mine -

But I happened to see a photo of Crocker emerging from a race car - and she was wearing the Ben Frank glasses.

I'm really surprised. Anyone who has worn glasses knows how easy it is for some perspiration to fog the glasses or at least the edge of the glasses.
Perhaps the cool air blown into the helmets keeps this from happening.
