5.11 Tactical and NASCAR made it official last November, but now it’s real.

The apparel line recently kicked off its entry into professional motorsports outfitting NASCAR Officials with custom-designed uniforms and gear.

“The uniform package that 5.11 Tactical introduced during Speedweeks received great praise and admiration from the hardworking men and women that officiate our sport,” said Robin Pemberton, NASCAR vice president of competition and racing development. “The new uniforms are comfortable and stylish and are made to hold up to the rigorous conditions in the garage.”

The new uniforms include 5.11 Tactical shirts, tactical pants, system jackets, polo shirts, wind shirts, hats and gear bags.

The official introduction was at the 2014 Daytona 500 where driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. won the great American race for the second time in his career.
