    The 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup finale couldn’t have been more climactic. Oakley racing star Tony “Smoke” Stewart was a mere three points behind then-leader Carl Edwards prior to the Ford 400 at Homestead-Miami Speedway this past Sunday. But after weeks of heated “verbal warfare” and dramatic moves to advance in the overall standings, the season came to an explosive close with Tony emerging victorious at the race and with his third NASCAR Crown in hand. The closest win in the sport’s history came down to a intense skirmish on the track between the leaders after Tony raged back by passing 118 cars over 400 miles. The Oakley speed demon, who’s the first driver-owner to have won the Title since 1992, fell out of the top 30 twice in the first 40 laps.

    It wasn’t easy. But Miguel Fuster battled his way to rally glory…in his Porsche 911 GT3, of course. The Spanish speed demon claimed his third Spanish National Champion of Rally Title after taking a fourth place finish at Sierra Morena. The hardware complements his 2003 and 2007 crowns. Oakley’s standout rally car star – and his co-driver Aviñó Nacho – needed but six points coming into Sierra Morena to claim the Championship mathematically. Following a slow, conservative start, the duo did just enough to seal the deal.

    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.
