Few were more surprised at Martin Truex Jr.’s stunning late race performance at Sonoma on Sunday…than himself. Oakley’s NASCAR ripper topped fellow O driver Juan Pablo Montoya and Jeff Gordon for victory, halting an extensive Sprint Cup Series drought stretching back to 2007. “You can’t explain the feeling,” Martin said following his second career triumph. “When it’s been that long and you worked so hard and you’ve been so close … you think at times, man, is this ever going to happen again? It’s pretty surreal. Unbelievable.”
The defending AMA Motocross Champion is looking to take the reigns. With a lukewarm start to the Outdoor season thus far, Ryan Dungey hasn’t broken through the proverbial barrier on his campaign to defend the title. Until now, that is. More than 20,000 fans braved the Tennessee heat to see Red Bull-KTM’s star take the overall victory at Muddy Creek – topping fellow Oakley star Ryan Villopoto with an impressive win in the second Moto.
Dramatic Turn: Tony Stewart’s Triumph at Dover Surprises NASCAR Fans, Juan Pablo Montoya Claims Second

Powering past fellow Oakley driver Juan Pablo Montoya with three laps to go, Tony Stewart blazed his way to a glorious victory and effectively snapped his 30-race winless streak.
