@MartySmithESPN: #DaleJr helmet would give my daughter nightmares…

@MaryeveDufault: Turned down @Playboy cover. It can be flattering for a model, but for me it’s all about racing.#Nascar #Playboy #RacingSuit Don’t work together

@dcaraviello (David Caraviello): Joey Logano says he reached out to Jeff Gordon for an apology re: Phx “and didn’t get one. Got hung up on.” Said Gordon texted him later.

@Team_Onion (Todd and Janet Bodine): There is no one that will tell me different @Team_Onion is the best in the business. Even through all this bad luck. Love him.

@AllWaltrip (Darrell Waltrip): We complement each other very well, @AllWaltrip has hindsight, @mikejoy500 has foresight and @LarryMac28 has insight, got you covered!

@Brett_Griff (Brett Griffin): Attention #NASCAR fans… “Rubbin is racin” someone please give @JeffGordonWeb that memo. It’s what brought us fans. It’s what will keep em

@Brett_Griff: Reading those quotes is a joke. 3 wide pisses him off. Touching him pisses him off. Hell lets play flag football this Sunday. #SMDH

@Beth_Frntstrtch (Beth Lunkenheimer): Confirmed for 2013: Sauter and Crafton will return with ThorSport Racing. #NASCAR

@LarryMac28 (Larry McReynolds): Being in the booth doing anything is like being with my family @mikejoy500 and @AllWaltrip Hope we ‘re together as long as we can make it!

@JeffGordonWeb: From my understanding, media didn’t tweet full @joeylogano quote. There’s his side, my side…and truth is somewhere in between.”

@jeff_gluck: Damn. That was a big hit for Blaney. Can’t really blame either Larson or Dillon…they were both just going for it, IMO.

@TheOrangeCone: Ty saw the chance at the championship slipping. Larson saw a win. Both needed that ground. Hard racing.

@mattkenseth: That was a big wreck, feel bad for those guys. They were putting on a heck of a show. #NASCAR

@RyanTruex: I think your thinking of a different Ryan “@JustxJessica: I hate it for @ryan_truex was hoping he would get a good finish”

@kaseykahne: Glad everyone is ok after that. Man they were all putting on a great race.

@EmmaBlaney: Just saw Ry. He is okay! Might be a little sore in the morning!

@mattkenseth: Wow!


@AshleyAllgaier: HUGE congratulations to @JamesBuescher & @Kris_Buescher! A well deserved championship!

@jim_utter: Margin of victory: 0.014 seconds.

@PPistone: 9 first time winners, 16 different winners in 22 races this season – insane! #nascar

@kaseykahne: Congrats @jamesbuescher and @TurnerMotorspts on the Truck Championship #NASCAR

@SamanthaBusch: Not a scratch on the truck racing hard n clean with other drivers all night. Then Cale gets to Kyle n does this to win

@BubbaWallace (Darrell Wallace, Jr.): I just called my mom to see if putting her in the wall to win my 1st race was okay.. She said heck yea then told me to go to bed!

@SamanthaBusch: 2 more races til 2012 race season is over, halleulujah! Proud of KBs interview n all the hard work the boys put into this program! Nite all!

@KyleLarsonRacin: Watched the replay of the wreck. Feel REALLY bad for @tydillon. I definitely would never wreck someone on purpose. I just drove over my head

@KyleLarsonRacin: Also would never do that to help a teammate out. Can’t really express how bad I feel about it all.

@RyanBlaney22: Well that hurt. I appreciate all the support everyone gave me tonight. Means a lot. Looking forward to tomorrow.

@Kris_Buescher: Congrats to my sweet husband!! And thanks to all of the amazing @JamesBuescher fans! #nascar

@ClintBowyer: Great piece on @SPEED about @keselowski and his parents. It’s a long hard ole road to get here and it’s awesome to see it pay off for people

@MStall41 (Matt Stallknecht): Johnson has what appears to be a terminal motor issue. Pretty much wraps things up for Keselowski #NASCAR

@KyleLarsonRacin: That’s such a lame way for the chase to end. Happy for @keselowski but was shaping up to be a good finish

@SamanthaBusch: Peace out 2012 race season I’m not sad at all to see you go!! What doesn’t kill u makes u stronger so watch out in 2013 Kyle n crew r comin!
