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.”
Many are learning their lesson the hard way: Don’t sleep on Clint Bowyer. Oakley’s NASCAR Star, shocking the field with a couple of victories already this season, made another power play with his impressive triumph at Charlotte this past weekend. The win places himself and the Michael Waltrip Racing Team in position to solidly challenge for the coveted Sprint Cup. ‘‘It’s fun to walk to Victory Lane, that’s the best walk you could ever have,’’ Clint said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, racing fire suit, boots, gloves and base layer.
The Chase! NASCAR Star Clint Bowyer Claims Richmond Glory, Shoots Into Sprint Cup Championship Contention With Fellow Oakley Drivers
Clint Bowyer may be known as a likeable, down home driver. And, he is, for the most part, underestimated. But make no mistake: Oakley’s NASCAR Star isn’t shooting for second. In what was a stunning victory for his team and the series overall, Clint triumphed at the Auto Parts 400 in Richmond to send him screaming into the Chase with a real shot at the coveted Sprint Cup. During his first season with the developing Michael Waltrip Racing Team – after departing from his former team, Richard Childress Racing (one of the top tier squads) – the former Motocross rider is raising eyebrows with his position just six points out of first place. “Unbelievable,” Clint said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, racing fire suit, racing gloves, racing boots and racing base layer. “To be able to win again, everything’s new.”
