@StewartHaasRcng: From the “WTH?” file. Yes, this is real and it’s happening now at 10:30 pm CDT. #NASCAR http://yfrog.com/oekowgxj

@StewartHaasRcng: This is currently in the Sprint Cup garage @TXMotorSpeedway. For the record, he’s an ass. http://yfrog.com/odcsidygj

@Kenny_Wallace: Tough start to our morning, around 8:30 a.m our dog “Mac” died from a weak heart, @KimWallace_36 n @brookew089 are Heart Broke

@scottspeed: This is how @Amanda_Speed cools off after a run ha ha http://lockerz.com/s/234866439

@nascarcasm: As the National Guard extends their sponsorship with HMS, Rep. Betty McCollum storms off to hauler without speaking to reporters. #NASCAR

@MartysmithESPN (Marty Smith): #DaleJr on car dealerships: “It was weird to be standing there talking to my mechanics, when I used to be one, myself.”

@CandiceSpencer: #DaleJr says if racing hadn’t worked out he would have worked at an auto dealership. “It paid the electric bill for four years” #NASCAR

@31n2Spotter (Brett Griffin): Yellow is out. “possible oil”. #SMH

@jeff_gluck: You have to admit it’s pretty funny to see NASCAR stop practice after two min. for “possible” fluid, but didn’t stop an actual race.

@mw55 (Michael Waltrip): Tommy leave @ClintBowyer alone please! #speed

@Lindyhornaday: Not sure but I’m thinking the fans at @MISpeedway might have it going on over Talladega? Just saying

@JesseMedford: Had hoped to ask Kyle Busch about Watkins Glen and coming back from that finish but he declined to do media after qualifying lap. #nascar

@CandiceSpencer: Asked @Keselowski if he’s talked to @KyleBusch since contact @WGI last Sunday. First he said “no”. Then he said “ask me again” #NASCAR

@MartySmithESPN: Brad K says he tried to get ahold of Kyle Busch, but “every phone number I had was bad, or something.”

@PPistone (Pete Pistone): Brad K says he spoke to Dave Rogers but has not talked with Kyle Busch after last week’s Watkins Glen race #nascar

@PPistone: I get @KyleBusch not talking after The Glen but believe he needed to speak to the media (and the fans) today #nascar

@Arlene_Martin: Way to go @55MarkMartin on the pole at Michigan!!! I’m proud of you ❤❤❤

@CandiceSpencer: Carl Edwards on @55MarkMartin’s longevity: I had Mark Martin toys when I was a kid #NASCAR

@MartySmithESPN: Edwards, as JJ walks into the room: “It’s a true honor to beat Jimmie Johnson at something lately.”

@rchilders55 (Rodney Childers): Big apology to @MartinTruexJr56 and all of the @napaknowhow guys.. I messed him up some on his 2nd lap.. Accidentally on his radio channel..

@jeff_gluck: “The media needs to lay off Kyle!” “The media needs to lay off Danica!” Those poor drivers and that awful media. Let them race in peace!

@jeff_gluck: Why do you think we ask drivers questions? For us? NO. For you! Bc we think you want to know what your driver thought of the race. You don’t?

@DGodfatherMoody (Dave Moody): Amazing to me that some tweeps think media should not have attempted to ask KyBu about being wrecked out of lead on last lap. Really? Crazy!

@pkligerman (Parker Kligerman): Wow..What a day! Great first day with the whole @RedHorseRacing team, an amazing job by all Great mates in @Team_Onion and @TimothyPeters17

@pkligerman: While also my first time in a cup car and being P1 was very cool! Fast off the truck in @penskeracing Shell Dodge! #NASCAR #NSCS

@pkligerman: Although was aiming for a top 10 starting spot, we did alright for 1st time. .. Get it dialed in for the race Tomorow for @SamHornish

@pkligerman: Lastly, I met @JimmieJohnson and I’ll say I had glasses on but he could prolly see I was excited. Super nice guy. Fun day overall! #NASCAR

@KyleBusch: We are getting close. Not every day u take a boat to a racetrack. #NASCAR #Montreal https://twitter.com/KyleBusch/status/236863403178725376/photo/1

@pkligerman: AWESOME race by @J_Allgaier … Watched him develop those RC skills from a auspicious start. Amazing. He deserves it! #NASCAR

@walr2772 (@Wally Rogers): What the hell is Jaques mad about ? The guy runs into everyone and is mad cause someone nudges him.. #comeonman

@keselowski (Brad Keselowski): Getting lots of tweets, texts & emails from peeps who aren’t normally racing fans but like the action lately This is a Good sign for #nascar

@JimmieJohnson: Thanks everyone, today was a tough one. We blew up & I’m disappointed, not much else to say. Now it’s on to Bristol.

@kaseykahne: Fast as lighting #team https://twitter.com/kaseykahne/status/237371926237040640/photo/1

@ESPNMcGee (Ryan McGee): Wow. Film director Tony Scott jumped off a bridge to his death. The man who brought us Days Of Thunder.

@J_Allgaier (Justin Allgaier): Also, I can’t say enough good things about @tagliani What a class act driver and person. So glad I could call him a teammate this wknd! THX

@J_Allgaier: Headed to @TurnerMotorspts today to hang out with the guys and take them to lunch! What a weekend for the whole shop!!

@JamieLittleESPN: Just got off the wkly conference call w my @NASCARESPN team…a little different this time as baby Carter slept on my lap. #BestOfBothWorlds

@bobpockrass: Aaron Fike, suspended since July 2007 after arrest on heroin charges, has been reinstated by #NASCAR after completing recovery program.

@MartySmithESPN: Kyle Busch crew chief Dave Rogers fined 25K/put on probation through Oct. 3 for improperly attached weight during prac. at MIS on Aug. 18.

@nateryan: No points penalty for KyBu, but CC Dave Rogers fined $25,000 & on probation until Oct. 3 for improperly attached weight in practice. #nascar

@nateryan: Some tungsten apparently fell off Kyle Busch’s Toyota during practice Saturday, which led to the penalty from #nascar.

@bobpockrass: The penalty to Rogers is likely explanation for Reutimann running over something, punching a hole in the right front fender during Sat prac.
