@NASCAR will wave the green flag on exclusive Twitter, Vine, and Periscope content all week — and of course on Sunday, Feb. 21 for the 58th annual #DAYTONA500. Here’s how you can join the conversation live.
Only on Twitter
To help bring Daytona 500 Tweets to life, we’ve partnered with NASCAR on a new #DAYTONA500 Twitter emoji. Fans can Tweet and join the conversation to bring color to their Daytona Tweets.

On Sunday, NASCAR will invite fans on Twitter to race in the first-ever Hashtag 500 for a chance to win authentic memorabilia from this year’s Great American Race. Fans must watch the live race broadcast on FOX and/or follow @NASCAR on Twitter to receive custom hashtags to Tweet with for a chance to win 10 special giveaways. The 500th person to Tweet the hashtag in conjunction with #DAYTONA500 wins the race and will take home a race-used item such as a driver firesuit, helmet, steering wheel, pit sign, gear shifter, or Goodyear tires.
Vine and Periscope
Throughout the weekend, @NASCAR Viners will be on the ground to shoot and create great content related to all the action on and off the track.
#DAYTONA500 branding will also be on site in the form of a structure built by Twitter in conjunction with Daytona Rising. Here’s what it will look like:
