Maybe it wasn’t the elusive Daytona 500 victory that Tony Stewart has been longing for. But it was brilliant, nonetheless. Executing a dramatic last-lap move to pass Matt Kenseth after starting way back in the 42nd position, Oakley’s NASCAR star powered his way to his 18th overall triumph at the Mecca of stock-car racing. “I’ll trade all of them for a win at the Daytona 500,” Tony said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, base layer, racing boots and racing gloves. “We just haven’t got the right one yet.” Nevertheless, he shined in the Coke Zero 400, securing his fourth Sprint Cup victory in Daytona and his 47th overall Sprint Cup win. He also moves up to 14th in all-time NASCAR triumphs, passing Buck Baker.
Clint Bowyer’s roots are in Motocross. Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that Oakley’s NASCAR Star owned a road course more reminiscent of an MX race than the typical oval. But the Kansas native still didn’t feel right being in front of the pack en route to a grand victory at the Toyota/Save Mart 350 in Sonoma this past weekend. “You know you’re close on fuel, you’ve got two champions behind you, and you know you have no business leading,” Clint said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, racing fire suit, gloves, boots and base layer. “But we had a really good car.”
If you still don’t know Ricky Stenhouse Jr.’s name, know it now. Oakley’s defending NASCAR Nationwide Champion is charging along in his campaign to dazzle racing fans far and wide – absolutely dominating Iowa Speedway this past weekend to match a track record by leading 209 laps straight to victory at the Pioneer Hi-Bred 250. The current Championship standings leader tallied his third straight win in Iowa and his second straight on the season, extending his overall lead to 28. “It almost feels like a hometown race to us now,” Ricky said, rocking his Oakley eyewear, racing gloves and racing boots. “This is the way you want to win ’em. You want to go out and dominate.”
