    Magic really does exist in the Land of Oz. Raging back from lagging behind a whole two laps, Oakley NASCAR Star Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. claimed his sixth triumph of the season – and his eighth career victory – at the Kansas Lottery 300 Nationwide Series race this past weekend. Following a dramatic green-white-checkered-flag finish, stretching the event six extra laps beyond its original 200, Ricky plowed his way to front of the pack in the final turn as then-leader Kyle Busch used up all his fuel. The improbable result became a reality as his car charged through a collision with Joey Logano on-track. “The guys did an awesome job getting the car back together, and we never gave up,” Ricky said, rocking his Oakley Batwolf eyewear. “Mike made great calls and adjustments to fix how the car drove with the damage, and it was still one of the fastest cars out there. I didn’t see the win coming like this, but we will take it.”

    It was the closest Championship battle in Red Bull X-Fighters history. And this time, a flying Kiwi emerged from the carnage victorious. Oakley’s New Zealand-born Freestyle Motocross Star, Levi Sherwood, was rightly crowned with the 2012 World Title following a super hotly contested struggle between the top riders on the Planet throughout the year. Finally culminating with an ultra intense event in Sydney, the tour came to an explosive end with Levi and fellow O star Thomas Pages’ dueling head-to-head in the ‘land down under’ for all the hardware. A series of magnificent runs saw Levi triumph over the impressive Frenchman in Australia and overall, but the ultimate result only came after a tumultuous season with immense challenges.
