Race Weekend Central

Tweet ‘N’ Greet: Kyle Larson, Clint Bowyer, Dale Jr., Plus More!

Each week, Frontstretch will scour Twitter and other social media platforms to bring you some of the best posts from your favorite NASCAR drivers, personalities and other industry accounts. These were some of our favorite posts over the last two weeks. If you missed it last week, Frontstretch did a special Tweet ‘N’ Greet in honor of Steve Byrnes.


Kyle Larson had some fun with son Owen at the Bristol Motor Speedway during the NASCAR K&N Pro Series East race. Larson posted this photo on Instagram, showing the fun both were having during the race. It’s safe to say, Owen will probably be working in the racing industry when he grows up.

With around 23 laps completed last weekend at the Bristol Motor Speedway, rain caused a major delay in the event. After sticking it out all day, NASCAR was able to continue the race once crews were able to dry the track. NASCAR Wonka sent out this tweet, suggesting everyone will be using the word “window” as in “There is a window of time in which we might be able to get the race in.”

Clint Bowyer found himself with a little issue while waiting out the rain delay at Bristol. During that time, a lot of drivers were probably tuning into the ACM awards. Bowyer posted this tweet, telling everyone how he’s having fun.

Prior to the start of the race at Bristol, Jeff Gordon’s kids had the opportunity to give the command to start engines. After the command, NASCARCasm sent out this hilarious tweet, suggesting they should have said this instead.

Many racing teams hold numerous types of contests throughout the week to give out prizes or other at-track experiences that you can’t get anywhere else. Interstate Batteries posted this picture of David Ragan, asking fans to caption the photo. From the looks of the photo, Ragan is really struggling with the car.

This is probably one of the best tweets we have ever seen during a Sprint Cup Series weekend. If you attended Richmond on Saturday, or monitored the radar all afternoon, you know that it rained a lot in the Richmond area. Chris Knight, still unsure if this was his car, tweeted a picture of this vehicle covered in mud, likely the result of another vehicle getting stuck and spinning their tires. We know one thing for sure: whoever’s car this belonged to had a very bad day.

With all the rain on Saturday, and the passing of Steve Byrnes fresh in our minds, The Orange Cone posted this just following the announcement of the event being postponed.

If you have been following Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Twitter lately, you have heard and seen a lot of his posts related to their new dog Gus. Earnhardt posted this tweet on Sunday, showing everyone his favorite spot to sleep on every trip. Very cute!

Keelan has been having a lot of fun lately at the race track with his dad Kevin Harvick. On Thursday, Kevin posted this photo on Throwback Thursday of him and his son having a fun time at the track. Every father and son, at least one anyway, should have a day to spend with one another at work.

When NASCAR drivers are not racing, they often will participate in numerous sponsorship activities. On Tuesday afternoon, Jamie McMurray had the opportunity to help give away five Chevy City Expresses away. Giving away a car to someone may be one of the most rewarding experiences.

That wraps up this week’s edition of Tweet ‘N’ Greet! Be sure to check back here next week for another exciting edition of the weekly feature! If you have not already, please follow us on Twitter @Frontstrech!
