NO PLACE FOR THIS IN RACING: ESPN’s Brad Daugherty said NASCAR should “definitely fine” Keselowski for having his cell phone in his car and tweeting during the race. Daugherty: “You’re a professional race car driver. I don’t know why you would have your cell phone with you in the first place, other than to just take advantage of an opportunity to do something like this. There’s no place for this in professional sports when you are the athlete.” ESPN’s Allen Bestwick noted drivers are "not allowed to have a recording device onboard” during a race (“NASCAR Now,” ESPN2, 2/28). Chicagoland Speedway President Scott Paddock said, "I was surprised, first of all, that he’s carrying around a cell phone in his racecar. I don’t know if he’s making dinner reservations for after the race or what’s going on there” (“Chicago Tribune Live,” Comcast SportsNet Chicago, 2/28).
