Top Rated White Papers and Resources

    good luck track almost dry

  • Jim Samuel

    Please get the story straight. Keselowski did not “tweet while racing,” as you stated. He tweeted while standing around during a red flag stoppage.

  • Mark

    He should’ve spent more time driving and less time tweeting. There was a huge fire yesterday on the track that could’ve killed someone.

    Also, what sort of message does this send to regular, road drivers? If tweeting while driving a NASCAR at 200 km/h is okay, I guess it’s okay for me to tweet while driving my kid to soccer practice.

    • Randy Matheson

      You can relax Mark, Brad only tweeted during a red flag when all cars were stopped with the engines shut off on the back stretch. In fact, most of the posts were done while he was standing around outside the car for the nearly two hour delay.

      The huge fire you mention was the reason the race was red flagged in the first place and was the result of a mechanical failure and a track maintenance vehicle being in the right place at the wrong time.

    This is a great piece, thank you for sharing.
