Tweets Of The Week: Dillon Sees Jesus, Keselowski Sounds Off
This week the NASCAR Twittersphere was abuzz with concerned wives, drivers breaking down their wild rides at Talladega Superspeedway, and one former champion with a little time -- and his phone -- on his hands.
Without further ado, here are this week's best tweets.
There was no word whether the GEICO gecko personally responded to Casey Mears' call after Sunday's race at Talladega.
Once you've flown through the air in a Sprint Cup Series car, other 'extreme' activities tend to be a little dull.
Michael McDowell had a front row seat for Dillon's attempt at a double-axle, but then wanted his spot back from Jeff Gordon.
.@Mc_Driver says "I just had a race car flip over me." The 14 flipped over us on the last lap and missed us. Scoring has us unofficially P14— Phil Parsons Racing (@PPR98) October 20, 2013
Thanks to an image on McDowell's car, Dillon saw the face of Jesus during his wild ride.
With the threat of the 'Big One' around every corner, Talladega tends to make some of NASCAR's heartiest WAGs get nervous.
DeLana has good reason to be sick to her stomach before the Sprint Cup Series race, just ask Timmy Hill who raced in Saturday's Camping World Truck Series race (he's in the No. 1).
Denny Hamlin's terrible 2013 season continued Sunday at Talladega, but at least he got to watch the end of the race.
Injured IndyCar star Dario Franchitti also had an eye on the Sprint Cup Series race.
Despite his aerial act, Max Papis was among the many impressed with Austin Dillon's first trip to Talladega Superspeedway in a Sprint Cup car.
While everyone on the outside was tense watching the pack in action, Clint Bowyer had a little chuckle inside the car, but then quickly realized the situation might not be as funny as he originally thought.
Had a chuckle in the car today. Saw @RCR31JeffBurton mirror dangling in his car then realized I was the one he couldn't see pushing him. ??— Clint Bowyer (@ClintBowyer) October 21, 2013
Landon Cassill dealt with a fuel issue throughout the day and had a terrible outing at Talladega, but he received something many NASCAR drivers and fans would love to have.
After the race, the Blaney family road-tripped it back to N.C., which was a bit much for young Ryan Blaney.
Once the stress of Talladega wore off, DeLana Harvick couldn't help but notice young son Keelan has a thing for Carrie Underwood. No word on if Keelan's been hanging out with 'Uncle' Tony Stewart.
While the majority of the Twittersphere was quiet after an interesting day at Talladega, defending series champion and Charlotte winner Brad Keselowski was busy tweeting away about this, that and pretty much anything.
Funny you say that... Was thinking the same @Joey_Chapman: why is everyone complaining? Does someone have to die for NASCAR to be fun?”— Brad Keselowski (@keselowski) October 21, 2013
Finally, Chase points leader Jimmie Johnson took some light reading with him on the trip to testing in Texas. We're sure Chad Knaus would approve.
