Nationwide Series to use Twitter in Nashville!

Nationwide is giving you the chance to interact with your favorite driver through Twitter. A Twitter Media team will be on site next weekend at the Pepsi 300 at Nashville Superspeedway April 10th and 11th. They will provide real-time, behind-the-scenes access and want to know if our readers have any special requests. Is there a particular photo of your favorite Nationwide driver that you would like? Let us know and they will try to get it for you!

We love Twitter and have met hundreds of great NASCAR fans through it. If you haven't had the chance to become part of the Twitter universe, it is a great outlet to connect with other NASCAR fans and NASCAR teams throughout the country. Over the past few weeks, there have been multiple NASCAR twitter guides to surface on the net. Our 4 favorites are:
The Final Lap with Kerry Murphy's guide to twitter
NASCAR in my own words guide to racing
Answer this, twitter me this
Restrictor Plated "I'm a NASCAR fan and I'm new to Twitter"

Here is the Nationwide press release we received today. Again, let us know by midnight, April 9th if you have any special requests.
