We have seen it before; NASCAR Champion Brad Keselowski using Twitter to tell fans when he feels something is wrong in the world of stock car racing. This time though, Keselowski has gone too far according to some fans and NASCAR.
After a three and a half hour rain delay of the Aaron’s 499 at Talladega and a huge crash with just six laps left in the race, Keselowski lined up for 10th place restart. In his latest Twitter rant, he says the eventual race winner, David Ragan, was supposed to be behind him but instead lined up to his right. Keselowski claims that this move gave Ragan the win in the end.
The tweets continued for a while with fans expressing their opinion on both sides of the argument but in the end, NASCAR says that Ragan was moved into the proper position and that Brad was not lined up properly.
In the end, NASCAR will be the judge and yet again Brad Keselowski will be under the microscope by many for his choice to use Twitter as a vehicle to vent his displeasure to the world. Do you think NASCAR should impose some sort of penalty for the comments or should it just be let go as a disappointed driver venting after a frustrating day of hard racing?
Given NASCAR’s heavy-handed use of the rule book this season, one has to wonder if they will choose to come down on the NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion for the negative comments made through his social media account.
