From the Pits at the Allstate 400 at Brickyard

2009 Brickyard 400 026

Although there was plenty of controversy at this years Allstate 400, Oakley’s presence and impact cannot be denied. With an estimated 180,000 fans in attendance, the Rolling O Lab was at it again, educating fans on today’s eyewear marketplace.

The O Lab was located on the southwest side of the track and was up and running as race fans began to trickle in Friday morning to watch practice and qualifiers before Sunday’s big event. Scattered showers didn’t dampen fans spirits or keep them from coming out in full force to check out why Oakley is the definitive leader of the pack.

Fortunately the sun was shining on race day and this years 160 lap, 400 mile race did not feature the tire fiasco of 2008, but there were still arms in the air. Oakley’s Juan Pablo Montoya dominated 116 laps and built a five second lead before he was flagged for speeding on a pit stop with 35 laps remaining leading to a 11th place finish. The penalty led to Jimmie Johnson’s third win in four years at Indy.

Special thanks to Todd Hayes, Scott Skelton and sales team, Dave Matias, Don Skelton, and of course the three generations of Morris’ for coming by and bringing some of that delicious homemade gumbo for lunch!
