Race Weekend Central

Tweet ‘N’ Greet: Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Danica Patrick, Plus More!

Frontstretch will scour Twitter every week looking for some of the best tweets from your favorite NASCAR personalities, drivers and other people that work within the industry. These were some of our favorite posts from the previous week and we hope you enjoy them too!

Jimmie Johnson is one of those athletes that loves all of his fans. Each week, Johnson will hold a contest on Twitter that awards a lucky fan with his hat he wore during the previous race weekend. This is something that athletes in other sports don’t often do.

If you know Dale Earnhardt Jr. you know that he is a big time internet shopper. It appears his love for eBay and internet shopping is starting to catch on to his girlfriend. Let’s just hope Earnhardt has enough expenses to cover the costs!

Kevin Harvick and Outback Steak House has a special promotion every time Harvick places in the top 10 in the previous Sprint Cup Series race. If Harvick is able to do so – Outback will give a free Bloom‘in Onion with any purchase on Monday. NASCARcasm posted this tweet, saying they should just notify everyone when Harvick does not score a top-10 finish.

Kyle Busch took to Twitter on Monday to wish his wife Samantha and new mother a happy birthday! Attached to the tweet was the photo above of the two sharing a special moment just prior to a race. From everyone at Frontstretch – we also wish Samantha a happy birthday!

NASCAR Wonka posted this funny tweet about what Samantha might want for her birthday. For those of you with kids and pets – you probably understand this feeling all too well. We, however, cannot confirm this was on her list!

Jamie McMurray took some questions on Sunday while flying back to his home in North Carolina. A fan asked McMurray approximately how long it took to fly from Dover back to the state of North Carolina. The answer, in the tweet above, might just surprise you!

Kurt Busch had a tough day on Sunday at the Dover International Speedway despite leading seven of the 400-laps. Busch got caught up in a late-race accident with Denny Hamlin. Tony Gibson, who is the crew chief on the No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing team, took some time to thank the team on Twitter.

Some NASCAR drivers like to stay at the track during their down time. Kasey Kahne on the other hand, likes getting out and about to experience other tracks in the surrounding area. Kahne sent out this tweet, showing everyone how to take a positive out of a negative. It seems he and the team were able to have some extra track time.

Tony Stewart posted this on his Twitter asking everyone why there are two stop signs on the same post in the state of Minnesota. This is something that you don’t see in a lot of areas around the country. They must have gotten a memo that Stewart was in the area and wanted to make sure there would be enough stop signs.

That will conclude this week’s edition of Tweet ‘N’ Greet! If you have not already, and if you are on Twitter, please give us a follow @Frontstretch! We hope you enjoyed this week’s edition and be sure to check back here next Tuesday for another!
