@31n2Spotter (Brett Griffin): Chase guys shouldn’t be allowed to tire test at chase tracks IMO. #nascar #advantage
@mw55 (Michael Waltrip): #bristol was THE place to be this weekend. Perfect weather, great racing and @bmsupdates fans are the best. Thank you. #nascar
@keselowski: Still soakin it in here in Bristol. Season ticket q&a, miller lite ride alongs and now @bkcff race 2 recovery events.#Goodtimes
@31n2Spotter: Few things I learned from Bristol: 1. Some drivers have an awful taste in music. 2. BMS pre-race never gets old. 3. It was awesome to hear
@31n2Spotter: That many people say pledge of allegiance! 4. If ur on probation u can intionally wreck someone w/o it being an infraction of the probation
@31n2Spotter: 5. It’s harder to complete the pass than anywhere else that we race! Last year once u got outside of the guy u peaced him out. Not now..
@31n2Spotter: Have at it boys has turned into 3400 lb sucker punches… #smh
@JimmieJohnson: I’m not sure why everyone is upside down about what goes on on pit road. This happens every week and its why qualifying is so important.
@Tjmajors: We ALL cheat the timing lines. When you QUALIFY good you get a better pick of stalls to gain advantage. NASCAR doesn’t need to change it.
@Tjmajors: And for the record, most drivers are good at timing lines but the STALL is the important part.
@Tjmajors: Here’s the drawing. Description next post. yfrog.com/hsbjgngj
@Tjmajors: Since the 2 would only be speeding for a few stalls then stopping before timing line 2 for his 13+ stop his avg speed be slow between lines.
@AllWaltrip: mystery of where the timing lines are obviously has been solved, they are where they’ve always been at Bristol, teams just figured it out !
@JLogano (Joey Logano): Ok run we were really good at times we just lost the handle on it towards the end. Off to kingsport to run @ColemanPressley late model today
@31n2Spotter: @JLogano good hard clean racing at the end. Think I said inside for 40 straight laps.
@JLogano: @31n2Spotter held me up long enough
@keselowski: Tonights truck race hopefully put a close to All this talk about new Bristol not as good as old bristol. #NotTheNewTracksFault

@DeLanaHarvick: @DanicaPatrick welcome to nascar!
@KrissieNewman: Yay another girl at SHR to keep these 2 boys in check! Welcome @DanicaPatrick and I wish you luck!
@TravisPastrana: In case you didn’t hear the news, postponing my NASCAR Nationwide debut until 2012 wings/pMhBuA #2injured2ride
@keselowski: Interesting hearing/seeing reaction from friends, family & fans about Danica announcement. u can really read a lot into the sport’s percep.
@keselowski: Most knowledgable female friends, family & fans are not happy about it. Casual female friends, family and fans, intrigued by her.
@keselowski: What does it say about her decision when those who know the sport and have faced similar challenges accordingly, r against her?
@keselowski: Growing up racing against girls in quarter midgets, I have no problem with females racing. the sport has always been about mental strength,
@keselowski: And raw talent. Not gender, or freak of nature genetics. Btw, Some of the best racers I competed against as a kid were girls.
@keselowski: Although I never raced against Danica growing up I’m sure she was one of those exceptionally talented and skilled girls.
@keselowski: Watching some of those girls flame out along the way was always disheartening for me personally. As a competitor u what to race the best.
@keselowski: There were many reasons the talented girls didn’t make it along the way. Some didn’t like the label, of female race car driver. Others,
@keselowski: Wanted time for a boy friend & later family. Kudos to Danica for sticking it out. Most don’t. I’ll always respect her accordingly.
@keselowski: All that said, her ascent up the ladder of the sport thru various branding ‘techniques’ (swimsuit ads etc) only serves to undermine the
@keselowski: Future credibility of female racers who wish to make it based on skill, mental toughness and a never give up attitude. That to me is wrong.
@keselowski: Essentially she has opened a pandoras box for all female racers. If she doesn’t succeed, no female will get a chance for years to come.
@RCR31JeffBurton: “@kingbud24: @RCR31JeffBurton what are your thoughts of danica moving over?”I’m glad she is coming to NASCAR I like her intensity and effort
@RCR31JeffBurton: It will be a tough transition but doing it full time is the only way it will ever work. She is a smart racer and rarely causes wrecks
@RCR31JeffBurton: That will help her learn the cars and tracks. I raced against girls and my son races several girls as well. Females can be and are winners
@RCR31JeffBurton: The cup move will be a very large step. The question is,will she have the speed? Only time will tell. She will b under the microscope.
@RCR31JeffBurton: She has done a good job of surrounding herself with good people which will help. I look forward to watching as much as anyone.
