They dubbed it “The Texas Title Fight.” And it lived up to the hype…big time. Oakley’s NASCAR Star Tony Stewart clawed his way even closer to current NASCAR Sprint Cup Chase standings leader Carl Edwards, emerging victorious at Texas Motor Speedway to send tensions shooting sky high as the season plows toward an intense ending. And out of all of his four Chase wins, Texas was by far Tony’s most dominant. Holding off charges from Edwards and Jeff Burton, Tony cleared traffic several times and masterfully held onto the lead as the leaders pitted to refuel and change tires at the tail end of the race. He lead seven times for 173 of 334 laps – sending a clear message to the Edwards camp.
Tony Stewart is on a mission. Oakley’s Star NASCAR Driver brilliantly passed Jimmie Johnson after a restart with three laps to go to claim his third ‘NASCAR Chase for the Sprint Cup’ race at the Tums Fast Relief 500 at Martinsville (Va.) Speedway. Putting a dent in Chase leader Carl Edward’s path to a championship, Tony powered his way to within single digits of Edwards in standings. “He’d better be worried, that’s all I can say,” Tony said, rocking his Oakley eyewear and racing gear. “He’s not going to have an easy three weeks.”
