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.”
Big News: Oakley Motocross Superstar James Stewart Signs With Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX Team - Option to Race NASCAR
Rumors have been circulating for months. With Oakley Motocross Superstar James “Bubba” Stewart not racing Outdoors (AMA Pro Motocross Series) this year, following a turbulent Supercross season, speculation on his future with a new team swirled in the air. Well the big news is finally out. Bubba has signed a multi-year contract to race with the motocross division of Joe Gibbs Racing, JGRMX. Famous for its success in NASCAR, Joe Gibbs’ team extended its relationship with Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. – racing exclusively Yamaha motorcycles through 2014. James will also have the option to dip into car racing with the team. He’ll debut on two wheels with Toyota/Yamaha/JGRMX at the opening round of the 2012 AMA Supercross Championship (Jan. 7, 2012 at Angel Stadium of Anaheim).
You know the line. “If you’re not first, you’re last.” This year at Talladega, Clint Bowyer was definitely not last. Oakley’s head-to-toe speedster claimed his first victory of the season in killer fashion, bumping out Jeff Burton on the last lap of the race with the checkered flag in sight – powering his way for the win for a flat out drag race finish.
