CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR will allow Brad Keselowski to keep his cellphone in his race car during events.
Keselowski drew worldwide attention for posting on Twitter during a red-flag period in Monday night's season-opening Daytona 500. He posted pictures, answered questions and kept fans informed of what was happening during the stoppage that lasted just over two hours.
The tweeting gained Keselowski roughly 140,000 followers during the race. But there was concern having a phone violated NASCAR rules. Teams are prohibited from having recording devices in the car that are not for competition purposes, and two-way communication devices are supposed to be analog only.
NASCAR said Tuesday that Keselowski had not violated any rules and can keep his phone. NASCAR said drivers are encouraged to use social media.
