On Monday the World Cup officially kicked off for those of us rooting for the United States. The US took on Ghana in their opening match of the 2014 World Cup and both team showed the world that they have a flare for the dramatics. In the end it was the US that was able to pull out a 2-1 victory and get their World Cup quest started off on the right foot.
As the US fans prepared to watch the match so did some of the NASCAR drivers. Below are some tweets from drivers before, during and after the match. As you will see some of your favorite drivers are also pretty avid supporters of US soccer. Juan Pablo Montoya even joined the celebration even though he isn’t exactly rooting for the United States.

That had to be some kind of record, the earliest a team has ever scored a point in the #WorldCup2014 ?
