DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — A bizarre delay in the Daytona 500 has produced another unique moment in NASCAR: Driver Brad Keselowski posted messages on his Twitter account while he waited in his car for the race to resume.

Driver Juan Pablo Montoya's collision with a large jet dryer vehicle touched off a huge fireball, bringing the race to a screeching halt. Montoya and the driver of the truck are OK.

NASCAR officials had the rest of the drivers stop their cars, and Keselowski took advantage of the break to post photos and answer questions from fans on his Twitter account, (at)keselowski. He apparently carries his mobile phone with him in his race car.

Asked by a fan whether other drivers were tweeting, Keselowski said no. He wrote: "They all think I'm crazy."
