Texas Motor Speedway is turning social media on its head and giving some of your favorite NASCAR personalities on Twitter a real voice during our NASCAR race weekends in 2013. Think NASCAR’s first shock jock scanner channel!
Broadcasting exclusively at Texas Motor Speedway on scanner frequency 454.500 fans will find all of the humor, witticisms, sarcasm and occasional snark of @theorangecone, @nascarcasm, @nascar_wonka and @theminichad.
Every Circus has a side show. This one has a voice.
A Joke of a Joke. Originally created by Jimmie Johnson, I took on my own voice in the summer of 2011. After being let go from #48 (not really) I started wandering around the pits seeing who I could help (read: jinx) with my cardboard crew chiefing skills. Sometimes witty, rarely funny, usually buzzed. I’m a good time – In my own mind. And I created @theorangecone. I’m tired of him riding my coat tails. If you want to buy me a drink I’ll be outside Gate4. Cheers. Did I mention I’m a good time?
Yes, another Wonka - the 4,027th Wonka account on twitter to be exact. It works out though because nothing is considered worn-out until number 4,028, so I made the cutoff...barely. I often use analogies and hyperbole, which means I merely say what I see because, honestly, I have no idea what those words mean. Whether or not you want to admit it, purple top hats are cool; and if you see a guy walking around TMS who looks Channing Tatum wearing one, it's probably me.
aka "Dave" to those who know me or don't want to attempt to pronounce my ridiculous Twitter handle. I’m a devoted follower of anything on four wheels that goes really fast and becoming a fan of things that go really fast on two wheels. But that's where I draw the line. Sorry, unicyclists.
I grew up in Indiana, in that small town that's next to the cornfield. I have lived in Indianapolis for the past five years, after finally moving out of my mom's basement. I live with my wife and two dogs, who as you read this are probably destroying one of my belongings.
I am reliable source of misinformation, a solid example of poor sportsmanship, and an occasional contributor to SBnation.com, NASCAR Illustrated, and your misery.
I am very excited for this year's Wild Asphalt Circus at Texas Motor Speedway, except for the clowns. I hate clowns. I mean, I’d like, straight up punch a clown.
Humble beginnings in race announcing at The Rumble Series in Ft. Wayne, Indiana in 2005. From there, a meteoric rise to the top of the motorsports world. Now living the NASCAR dream one race at a time at pit entrance. Once subbed for Tim Brewer in the ESPN Tech Garage without anyone noticing. Whipped Chuck Norris on three separate occasions. While not a "stick and ball" fan, did teach Tim Tebow all he knows. When not at the races, Cone enjoys sitting in hot tubs with many attractive women and playing practical jokes on the NASCAR executives in both Charlotte and Daytona Beach.
