“What a Memorial Day weekend! The William Rast car just won the Indy 500!!!!” Timberlake tweeted.

This is the fourth year William Rast has played a sponsorship role at Indy, and the second consecutive year with Bryan Herta Autosport, the owner of the car Wheldon drove.
The sponsorship was a tie-in to the launch of William Rast eyewear.
