Keselowski, the 2010 NASCAR Nationwide Series Champion, was not going around the track at racing speed of near 200MPH. The 2012 Daytona 500 stopped With 40 laps to go due to the red flag, allowing time for him to tweet on his iPhone.

Mashable reports:

“Keselowski’s fellow driver Juan Pablo Montoya crashed into a safety vehicle mid-race. The collision and jet fuel — the safety vehicle reportedly holds 200 gallons of jet kerosene — sparked a huge ball of fire, although both vehicles’ drivers appeared to avoid serious injury. The race was halted.”

Brad Keselowski took a photo of the fire using his trusty iPhone, and tweeted using Twitter for iPhone. Before he tweeted photo of the fire, @keselowski had 85,000 followers. An hour later, he had 185,000 followers. But it’s not all due to the photo becoming viral. Brad also provided additional photos, updates, and answered fan questions. For example:
