LONG-TIME FOLLOWER, FIRST-TIME TWEETER
Sharna Burgess’ former “Dancing with the Stars” teammate turned nervous fan boy, James Hinchcliffe, posted this tongue-in-cheek video asking if he could win her DWTS live tour tickets. He makes a great case with his top three reasons why he should win. His third reason? he holds three “Dance Dance Revolution” high scores around Indianapolis arcades! Care to prove it, Hinch?
Hey @SharnaBurgess! Long time follower, first time tweeter. Heard you were giving away @DWTSLiveTour tickets! Can I come?! pic.twitter.com/p5hn3d6cex
GET BIT IN THE PIT
The announcement of the Indy 500 Snake Pit presented by Coors Light concert lineup during the 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil caught the attention of one of its biggest fans, “The Amazing Race” contestant Conor Daly, on Twitter. To no one’s surprise, Hinchcliffe was quick to chime in …
Helluva lineup! Lots of beer need be held!
An @Indy500SnakePit lineup worthy of May. 🙌
See @Axwell /\ @Ingrosso, @deadmau5, @diplo and @Griz at the #Indy500SnakePit pres. by @CoorsLight.

MARCO BEING MARCO
What kind of week would it be if Marco Andretti wasn’t out there driving some type of machine? This week’s choice was a snowmobile in the snow-covered woods of Pennsylvania.
Bit rocky but fun. 🎥 : @pjchesson

ICE, ICE BABY
Just the mention of a Vanilla Ice show ahead of the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg caught the attention of “Ice Man” himself, four-time Verizon IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon. Who knew he was such a fan?
For real? https://t.co/F9BuyVFq5W
CARLIN CAR FANFARE
The Carlin team shared this behind-the-scenes look at one of its cars prior to testing on track for the first time Monday at Homestead-Miami Speedway with drivers Charlie Kimball and Max Chilton, and they’re followers loved it. Easy to see why.
What a beauty! It’s almost time...... @indycar
