NASCAR Racing Advice from MWR Via Twitter

Aarons55650xDo you ever watch a NASCAR race and wish you could ask a racing expert a question? Is there something about the sport you’ve always wanted to know?

Now’s your chance to get those answers. Throughout race weekends in 2014, Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) will collect questions hash-tagged #AskMWR on its @MWRteam Twitter handle.

No. 55 Aaron’s Dream Machine Jackman Wes Evans will host a 3-minute video each Wednesday on featuring MWR experts answering the best fan questions from the weekend.

If you think you know everything about the sport take a look at the videos from the first few weeks of the season and see if there is a gem of knowledge that might have slipped through the cracks during your years of race watching.

Evans has already answered questions about pit crew communication through hand signals, transportation challenges posed by west coast races, the weight of tire inner liners and car setups in night versus day races.

Sarah Vickers, Brian Vickers’ wife, tweeted #AskMWR for an explanation of how the teams calculate fuel mileage without gauges in the car.

Her husband is a viewer.

“This is a really cool idea and a great way to connect with our fans no matter how much they know about racing,” said Brian Vickers. “You have to be a hardcore race fan to ask about the weight of inner liners and some of the things that are asked. Wes also takes the time to explain some of the stuff new fans might not know. They do a good job with the videos and you get answers from the people that know best.”
