    The Aussie just keeps on trucking. Oakley MotoGP Star Casey Stoner extended his MotoGP Championship Standings lead to a massive 243 points after claiming a resounding victory from Pole at Indianapolis MotoGP this past weekend. The Aussie speed demon smashed his way to the new circuit best lap record on the way to grabbing pole position with a 1’38.850 lap. He also clocked the new fastest lap record of 1’39.807 in his seventh win of the season and his third consecutive victory in a row following Laguna Seca and Brno (Czech). Fellow Oakley rider and American star Ben Spies claimed some glory of his own on ‘home turf’ with a resounding third-place finish. On the heels of a rare, crowded fan autograph signing at the Oakley Retail Garage onsite at the track – put on by Oakley and the Indianapolis Motors Speedway – Ben started the race in the second position.
