@bobpockrass: Penske’s Tim Cindric said he asked Gibbs last year when Kurt Busch was released to see if Logano was available. #nascar

@bobpockrass: Cindric said they will evaluate whether Todd Gordon remains as crew chief … could go either way. #nascar

@bobpockrass: Cindric also said they considered other drivers, their driving ability and obviously sensitive to someone w/good character after issues w/22

@jeff_gluck: Joey Logano says Brad Keselowski is involved with many day-to-day decisions at Penske and has a big role in the company’s direction.

@dcaraviello (David Carviello): Logano says Keselowski “called me and said, ‘You might want to talk about this. This is a great opportunity for you.’ That means a lot.”

@WendyVenturini: Headed to decorate for @McDzFamily baby shower! Baby GIRL McDowell will be here next month!

@JennaFryer: Ryan Newman says today about future @StewartHaasRcng: “We pretty much have everything wrapped up.” #NASCAR

@keselowski (Brad Keselowski): As the athlete debate continues in racing, it always amazes me what people say. IMO Sports require a true balance of mental & phys. strength

@keselowski: Many people are mystified by race car drivers position as athletes. Most likely because of the emphasis on mental over physical strength.

@TheOrangeCone: BREAKING: with no other rides open except a JGR Nationwide car, Ryan Newman wisely decides to stay right where he is. #nailedit

@WendyVenturini: One final baby note. I’ve been to more Wednesday night baby showers this year than most ppl in a lifetime. #NASCAR #WednesdaysAreWeekends

@KevinHarvick: Another solid night even though we didn’t come out on the good side of the rain gamble.. Thanks for sticking with us! It ain’t over yet!!!

@JennaFryer: Gibbs: “We love Dave Rogers. I think he’s one of the brightest and the best. If we have a tough night, we all have a tough night together.”

@JennaFryer: Rogers: “Kyle did a good job of keeping his composure and took it on the chin like a man and went back to his bus.” #NASCAR

@DNewtonESPN: Just enough time to run by hotel, pack bag, get to airport for 6 am flight. Race winner @ClintBowyer needs to give me 5-Hour Energy. #nascar

@OneMenz (Joe Menzer): You know it’s been long night (and morning) of work when you get back to hotel and run into people hustling out to catch early-morn flights

@dcaraviello: After RIR races, media used to grill burgers and drink beer in parking lot. Now such an ass-kicker of a work weekend no one has the energy.

@landoncassill: Another one down. Great run. My ears have been ringing more than usual. Hope that goes away. Goodnight!

@JeffGordonWeb: So as many of u may have heard, I made a statement that if we made the Chase I wud bring back the stache. I’m a man of my word.

@MNeffShortTrack: Cannot wait to see @JeffGordonWeb rocking the early 90s porn ‘stache! This is going to be EPIC!!!!
