Race Weekend Central

Tweet ‘N’ Greet: Martin Truex Jr., Dale Earnhardt Jr., Clint Bowyer, Plus More!

Frontstretch will scour Twitter and other social media platforms looking for some of the best posts from your favorite NASCAR personalities, drivers and media members from all across the industry. These were some of our favorite posts from this week and we hope you enjoy them too!

Martin Truex Jr. had a surprise captured on one of his trail cameras. Safe to say, Truex is already looking forward to deer hunting season!

Clint Bowyer had some fun off the track over the week. Bowyer posted this photo, telling everyone that horses is the best kind of horse power available. It would be very interesting to see Bowyer guide a horse-powered wagon!

Jamie McMurray spent some time at the track this past weekend checking out the new views at the 2.5-mile Daytona International Speedway. As part of the Daytona rising project, a series of remodeling phases at Daytona, McMurray climbed the steps up to the new grandstand section and snapped this selfie. Appears to be a fantastic view!

Kevin Harvick spent the rain delay on Sunday evening drinking coffee, according to this tweet. Harvick is very lucky that the race wasn’t called because he would have probably been up for the remainder of the night. It also probably came in handy since the race did not conclude until almost 3:00 a.m. ET.

During the rain delay, NASCAR Wonka posted this tweet, suggesting that if the race doesn’t start soon, teams will have to change their Fourth of July schemes over to Christmas schemes. We’re thankful that the race was able to be completed before Christmas.

NASCARCasm caught something interesting during the broadcast last Sunday night. When NBC started talking about possible sleepers during the race, meaning underdog drivers who could potentially win, he posted this hilarious tweet.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. did something very classy after his victory on Monday morning. Instead of celebrating the victory right away, Earnhardt shared his concerns for driver Austin Dillon and fans sitting in the area where the No. 3 Chevrolet slammed into the catchfence. This is something that not all athletes would do.

Marty Smith also shared some thoughts on the crew members who ran out to check on Dillon after the wreck. Smith posted this tweet, saying the move is one of the greatest moments in all of sports this year. Safe to say, we agree with this tweet.


Dillon shared something cool with everyone on his Instagram page. Dillon did some recovery in a cool chamber. The effect is similar to an ice bath that many athletes do regularly. It would be interesting to see what the coolness of this feels like!

That concludes this week’s edition of Tweet ‘N’ Greet! Be sure to check back here next week for another edition featuring numerous people all around in the NASCAR industry! If you’re on Twitter and have not already, please give us a follow @Frontstrech!
