In addition to the thousands of fans in the stands and thousands more watching on television, more than 1.5 million Twitter followers will catch all the excitement of the West Coast Premiere of NASCAR – the Auto Club 500 Weekend – thanks to Michaels – aka Adventure Girl who plans to spend the weekend absorbing all the festivities and “tweeting” about her experiences, 140-characters at a time.

Adventure Girl, described as one of “America’s Tweethearts” in a recent Vanity Fair article and travel journalist in her real life, has more than 1.5 million followers on Twitter, the 98th most in the world, ranking her between Serena Williams and Denise Richards.
