Dan Wheldon took the checkered flag at the Indy 500 Sunday in a car sponsored by William Rast clothing — that’s the company owned by Justin Timberlake and his best friend Trace Ayala.

“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.
