Best Tweets: Avid Fans, Burning Wheat & Gober Sosebee

Let’s take a look back at the best tweets of the week in the world of NASCAR.

We know fans love Bristol, but apparently it’s even a favorite of four-time champion Jeff Gordon.

Fans often request retweets from drivers, but one Kyle Busch fan may have taken it a bit too far. 

After Friday night’s Nationwide Series race, Brad Keselowski had a really, really avid fan outside his motorhome. 

Driver introductions are always unique at Bristol, but no matter where you go the response is usually the same for Rowdy Busch.

Country music artist Jake Owen had a little fun picking Kevin Harvick’s intro music.

In typical Bristol fashion, not everyone had a great night at the "World’s Fastest Half Mile." 


However, it was a great day to be a Kenseth. Ross Kenseth captured the pole for his first career ARCA Series start, while his dad had a little bit of success too. 


Kasey Kahne’s night was good, but not good enough. 

Michigan winner Joey Logano overcame a lot of adversity to score a top 5 finish.

Then he returned the love Kenseth showed him last week.

With a rare day off, Kyle Larson took in some Little League World Series action, but was torn on who to cheer for. 

Clint Bowyer spent his day off burning wheat…yeah, that’s the ticket.



Looking ahead to Atlanta, NASCAR’s stats guru Mike Forde provided this little nugget.

And since you were wondering, here’s a picture of Gober Sosebee.

UNKNOWN: Georgia driver Gober Sosebee ran 71 NASCAR Cup races between 1949 and 1959. He won two events, in 1952 at Hayloft Speedway in Augusta, Georgia, and in 1954 at Central City Speedway in Macon, Georgia. He won the NASCAR Modified race held on the Daytona Beach-Road Course in 1950, then won the NASCAR Sportsman event the following year on the beach. (Photo by ISC Images & Archives via Getty Images)
