Most interesting driver tweets after Sunday’s Auto Club 400
Through five races, the 2016 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has produced plenty of high drama and big moments.
On the track, two of the eight closest finishes in NASCAR history have occurred already this year, and Jimmie Johnson won Sunday’s Auto Club 400 at Auto Club Speedway to move past the late Dale Earnhardt with 77 career Cup race victories.
Off the track, there was plenty of action, too, in the form of driver reactions on social media after the Sunday’s race, the third and final event in NASCAR’s West Coast Swing. Here is a sampling of some of the more interesting driver tweets from Sunday night.

If there's a road course in the chase, I hope it's the final race and I will drive backwards towing a boat. https://t.co/erTPNGXVYP

Yes. Always said when I win a cup championship I'd give it thought. Well, guess what… https://t.co/N5P85mSdE9
