Tweets Of The Week: Confusion & Jimmie Johnson Reign In Phoenix
The always-active NASCAR Twittersphere was certainly abuzz this weekend as the series rolled into Phoenix International Raceway.
Sunday's NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race wasn't the easiest race to follow along with. Multiple strategies up and down pit road had drivers and teams on roughly three differing pit strategies throughout the entire event.
While it was tough for the outside viewer, it was apparently also tough on the competition.
Man I don't know about you guys but I was confused the whole race. Team did good today probably had a top 5 car— Joey Logano (@joeylogano) November 11, 2013
Once thing that rang clear, however, was the fact Jimmie Johnson's path to a sixth Sprint Cup championship was made a lot smoother on Sunday. Just a week after calling out Johnson's weakness, defending series champion Brad Keselowski is ready to give 'Five-Time' a new nickname.
He's been called vanilla, he's been called a champion, but we're not sure anything like this has been said about Jimmie before.
Whether or not it was divine intervention, Johnson still had a great day in the desert.
Even though Jimmie left Phoenix on top of the Chase standings, Kevin Harvick had a pretty solid day as well.
Harvick's young son Keelan also got in on the fun in victory lane.
Hey, when you party hard, you crash hard, right?
Speaking of cute kids, how adorable is Miguel Paludo's son? It'll be hard to top that.
But, the Boley family gave Paludo's son a run for his money. They were reunited with their father and husband Air Force Sergeant Chad Boley prior to the start of Sunday's race.
The always-military minded Kurt Busch was proud of his efforts in Phoenix, but even more proud to honor U.S. veterans with the accomplishment.
Although he appeared in to be in good shape after his win at Martinsville, Jeff Gordon's luck took a turn for the worse Sunday in Phoenix. Don't worry fans, Gordon and his crew feel your pain.
As the wheel of time turns in NASCAR, the young guns are becoming primetime players, while the veterans are slipping into the shadows of history. This was not lost on our own Kenny Wallace.
The Harvick family was quick to point out that probably won't last once the 'new' wears off the relationship.
Haven't we seen Danica's kitchen escapades somewhere before...
