    Oakley’s star golfer, Bubba Watson is known for many things; his excellence on the links, his charming southern antics and his love for unique motor vehicles. From his famous hovercraft to The General Lee, Watson has always had an affinity for interesting rides. With that in mind, Oakley’s golf and motorsports teams got together to build the ultimate custom Ford Raptor for the long driving southpaw. And what better setting to make a splash with the delivery than the Waste Management Phoenix Open – the PGA tournament that’s nothing short of a raging good time.

    So this is what 10,000 horsepower feels like. As the NHRA season blasted into gear last week, Don Schumacher Racing unleashed its official team video for the 2014 season. And with Oakley’s Motorsports and video production teams behind the madness, the explosive production began capturing the imaginations of motorsports fans far and wide. Over two days at preseason testing last month in South Florida, Oakley’s crew of mad scientists/videographers employed an unprecedented display of technologies to capture team DSR and its personalities in action using famed Red Digital cameras. Red Digital is the video camera of choice for major Hollywood films.

    James Stewart’s fame was born from being insanely fast… borderline reckless. But Bubba’s masterful performance in San Diego this past weekend – laced with bold strategy and steady riding – revealed the modern day JS7 as he clawed his way past Ryan Villopoto for the Supercross victory. Known to charge his hardest, despite the threat of crashing from the sheer power of today’s 450 cc dirt bikes, James’ riding in San Diego was nothing short of an eyebrow raiser for fans and the industry alike as he displayed a more mature, solid brand of racing for the fans.

    When it comes to Ferrari, it’s not just the lure of a pretty ‘car’ that captures the imaginations of admirers across the Globe…It’s a dream. So it’s no surprise, in any respect, that the Prancing Horse’s new Formula 1 drivers make up a “Dream Team” of sorts, comprised of two of the most legendary active pilots in the world today. With much off-season chatter on team chemistry between Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen floating around the motorsports community, gossip finally melted away as the team sparked a new era and unveiled its completely redesigned 2014 car, the F14 T, at its Maranello headquarters last week. Sending shockwaves throughout, the new racing machine, laced with complicated, bleeding edge technologies – like a brand new four cylinder turbo engine (a rarity in F1, where bigger engines have been the norm), aerodynamic advances (nose, front fin and more) and a brand new chassis – is truly ushering the team into the new environment in the sport (with new rules).
