NASCAR goes west on social media: It’s Vegas, baby, Vegas!

It’s that time again, when for at least a few days every year, NASCAR teams utter the same refrain: Viva Las Vegas!

There’s so much to do:

* All the shows on the famous Strip and other areas.

* You’ll never go hungry with the dozens of buffets.

* And if you’re looking for a quick way to part you from your money, there’s also all the slot machines and table games 24/7/365.

* Oh yeah, and there’s also two NASCAR races this weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway: Saturday’s Boyd Gaming 300 Xfinity Series event, and Sunday’s Kobalt 400 NASCAR Cup race.

It’s also a time and place where NASCAR drivers, crew chiefs and team members love to take to social media to extol the virtues of what’s going on in town and what they’re doing during their mini-working vacation of sorts.

Check out some of the better tweets we’ve seen from Sin City – and remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas:
