Offbeat Twitter Follows for the Indy 500


Driver Brian Clauson’s Jack Russell terrier is to IndyCar what Blue III is to college basketball. Her dad starts in the 11th row of the 500 Sunday.



Driver Will Power’s brother, a comedian in Australia, provides some trash-talking color commentary during a race. Let’s hope he’s on his game as much as his sibling, the reigning IndyCar series champion, winner of the Grand Prix of Indianapolis two weeks ago, and a favorite to capture his first 500.



Inside-racing stuff, funny fan moments, and solid retweets from a true gearhead blogger.

Author John Green harbors the same passion for IndyCar as he does for adorkable teen romances. And he practically has the keys to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. #GoEdCarpenter
