Justin Timberlake had extra reason to celebrate America's Memorial Day weekend – the car his clothing company sponsored won the famous Indianapolis 500 race.

The singer/actor's William Rast firm backed driver Dan Wheldon at the annual event in Indiana on Sunday, and Timberlake was delighted when Wheldon snatched glory in the final seconds after JR Hildebrand suffered a last-lap mishap.

In a series of posts on his Twitter, Timberlake writes, "What a Memorial Day weekend! The William Rast car just won the Indy 500!!!!

"Congrats to Dan Wheldon, the WR racing team and everyone else who put in the hard work for this victory! Unreal!"

The race was also a big day for Kelly Clarkson – she teamed up with Seal to perform the U.S. National Anthem at the event.
