I have delved into social media now and I have found a whole new level of information that is coming directly from Twitter.  I saw Fox show Brad Keselowski Tweeting from his car during the red flag stop at Daytona so a fellow writer told me to get an account.  So I start following @ this and # that and the amount of information is incredible.  So for Nationwide Series, one of my favorite drivers is Kenny Wallace, I mean seriously, who doesn’t like Kenny.  So in following Kenny I find out that he has a sponsor for this week’s race and then the outpouring of the Twitter community following Kenny poured on the Tweets to Mac Tools thanking them.  I have to admit, I added in my Tweet as well.

Kenny Wallace and Car with this weeks sponsor!

Another Tweet came in directly to me asking me to follow Benny Gordon and the SR2 Motorsports team.  So I figure why not. I did a little digging and following on Twitter and found an article by Dave Rodman that mentions Benny.  To quote Dave Rodman: “The “star” so far has to be former USAR Pro Cup champion Benny Gordon”.

So now, this weekend, at the start of the Nationwide Series race at Bristol for the Ford EcoBoost 300, I will be rooting for Benny Gordon and Kenny Wallace.  Currently, Benny is running 13th after 3 races and Kenny is running 17th.  For the full list of standings for the Nationwide Cup click on the following link: Nationwide Standings.

I find this world of social media very interesting and I am looking forward seeing what other information I can dig up.  I am @GN_MarkC.
