A NASCAR driver named Brad Keselowski pulled a first in racing history, that I am aware of, Monday night during the postponed running of the Daytona 500.  Brad tweeted a photo (from his car) of a fiery wreck which occurred with only 40 laps to go.  Since his first Tweet he gained over 120,000 followers in under two hours since the red flag was waved.  We have seen Twitter accounts grow very quickly, but this is unheard of in the racing world.   Reports say that Brad had around 65,000 followers when he first Tweeted the picture, he now over 201,000 followers and it is still growing.
