@NASCAR’s new elimination playoff format begins this coming Sunday at 2 p.m. ET on @ESPN at Chicagoland Speedway. Follow along on Twitter as we take you behind the scenes for the 10 most important races of the year.
Sixteen Chase-eligible drivers will have to survive three elimination rounds and a first-to-the-finish finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, November 16. There’s more on the Chase here, and the field is set:
Follow and engage
You’ll want to follow drivers competing for the championship. Here’s where to find and follow Chase drivers.
Every NASCAR must-follow list starts with six-time champ Jimmie Johnson (@jimmiejohnson), but don’t miss these stars: the always-entertaining Brad Keselowski (@keselowski); 11-time Most Popular Driver Award winner Dale Earnhardt Jr. (@DaleJr); the man they call “Rowdy” – Kyle Busch (@KyleBusch); and this year’s youngest Chase competitor, 24-year old Joey Logano (@JoeyLogano).
Further, no one takes you behind the scenes like NASCAR teams. Follow Hendrick Motorsports (@TeamHendrick), Joe Gibbs Racing (@JoeGibbsRacing), Stewart-Haas Racing (@StewartHaasRcng) and Penske Racing (@Team_Penske) throughout the 10-week run to the championship.
Vine Booth and Twitter Mirror
This Sunday you can watch driver introductions from @NASCAR. As the drivers take the stage they will pass through the Vine Booth so fans can get a 360 view of their fire suits and excitement for the race.
Also, be sure to keep an eye on @NASCAR for Media Day selfies from the Twitter Mirror.
Participate and win
During the Chase, @NASCAR and @ESPN have teamed up to offer fans the chance to get their Twitter handle on their favorite Chase driver’s car. Share a creative photo on Twitter to show how you represent your Chase driver, tag it with #MyChaseNation and you could win. Details here.
