The Frontstretch 5: Must-Follow Racing Twitter Accounts

Social media has rapidly become a go-to for all things, racing included.  Fans can interact with their favorite drivers and broadcasters and often see a different side of people that doesn’t come across on television.  Here are just a few of the fabulous racing-related Twitter feeds fans can follow to get a glimpse inside the world of racing and the heads of the people in it.  A few of them might surprise you in their honesty and humor.  And speaking of Twitter, don’t forget to follow along with me (@Writer_Amy)!

1. Jimmie Johnson (@JimmieJohnson)

Think you know Six-Time?  Think he’s mild as milquetoast?  You might want to think again.  Johnson, who’s unfailingly polite and well-spoken on camera, shows a different side of himself on his feed, sharing his personal life but also trading sarcastic barbs with fans who get on his nerves.  From sending a middle finger emoji to the haters to having some fun with his friends, Johnson is much more himself on his page than he often is on television, where the airtime belongs to his sponsors.

2. Landon Cassill (@landoncassill)

Cassill is outgoing, engaging and pretty all-around hilarious.  And he likes his car number—a lot.

3. DeLana Harvick (@DeLanaHarvick)

Got racing questions?  DeLana chats with fans almost every Sunday before the Cup races.  Her posts range from serious to far from it, and she’s not afraid to speak her mind on anything from racing to parenting Keelan.

4. Tony Stewart (@TonyStewart)

Stewart is… Stewart. And probably a little bit crazy. He’s not always a prolific poster, but it’s worth it when he does.  You never know what you’ll get—but it’s always entertaining.

5. John Force (@JohnForce_FC)

16-time NHRA Funny Car Champion John Force is one of those people who just says whatever’s on his mind—even if it doesn’t always make a lot of sense.  And he Tweets just like he talks.  No, really… How he fits that many thoughts into 140 characters is beyond me.
