COMMENTARY | With social media being a part of every day life now, it does have its positives. It allows celebrities to connect and talk to their fans in a way that was not possible before. Within the NASCAR world there are some good people to follow on Twitter that either give great news and information or, are your favorite drivers and they share what they do during the week.
Probably the best two people to follow are Jeff Gluck (@jeff_gluck) and Bob Pockrass (@bobpockarass). Both of them are writers and they tweet very good information. For example, they tweet what goes inside the media center after the races and during the weekend. They also tweet top stories and news from the NASCAR world. Both are almost a necessity for all NASCAR fans twitter accounts.
This might be a surprise but Mike Joy (@mikejoy500) is one of the most interesting people to follow. He rarely tweets on his own but rather responds to nearly all the questions he gets from his fans. Since he quotes them they show up on your own feed. He actually is very knowledgeable about the sport and tweets his own opinions on things when he is asked. The odds of you getting a response from Mike Joy on twitter are very high which is one of the reasons he is one of the best NASCAR personalities on twitter
Now for the what I believe are the best NASCAR drivers to follow on twitter. The first one is the obvious Brad Keselowski (@keselowski). Ever since he tweeted a picture from inside his car during the red flag in the 2012 Daytona 500, Brad has had been one of the more popular NASCAR drivers on twitter. He sometimes responds to fans questions and also tweets his opinions after the race. After the Talladega race, Keselowski immediately took to twitter after the race and said that race winner David Ragan did not line up right on the last restart. Things like that and more make him the best one to follow.
Next two are Joey Logano (@joeylogano) and Denny Hamlin (@dennyhamlin). The twitter fight earlier this year between these two is really the only reason that Joey Logano is on this list. That and he sometimes tweets pictures of what is going on during the week. As for Denny Hamlin, he tweets things that he does during the week and sometimes his opinions on the state of NASCAR. He actually said on twitter in not so many words that Brian France was lieing when he said other drivers came to him and supported the fine he got earlier.
Probably one of the funniest NASCAR driver on twitter is Clint Bowyer (@ClintBowyer). No surprise here as he tweets from anything to what he is watching on TV to what is going on at the track. Another funny one actually is Jimmie Johnson (@JimmieJohnson). He tweets about to some of the haters and usually responds in a joking matter. He also sometimes tweets about what he does off the track.
If you really want to see what a NASCAR driver is doing off the track follow Timmy Hill (TimmyHillRacer). He tweets a lot about what he is doing off the track as well as on. When he is not racing in the 32 car he sometimes tweets pictures from atop the pitbox. He tweets a lot during the week about what he is up to and a lot of the times, responds to fans questions.
Twitter certainly has made it easier for regular people to connect with their favorite NASCAR personalities . Don’t forget to follow Beyond The Flag (Beyond_The_Flag) for new updates on ALL forms Motorsports and opinions from our staff.
