Four Wide: Jimmie takes to Twitter; Newman's up, Joey's down

Rounding up a few of the week's best stories that didn't quite get the full-post treatment...

Jimmie Johnson was late to Twitter, but he's starting to own that too. Of course he is. Man, that guy is good at everything! [SB Nation]

Travis Kvapil will be marking his 150th career Cup start this weekend in Bristol. Nice job, Trav! [Catchfence]

Ryan Newman is off to a hot start, and he's lovin' life right about now. [Scene Daily]

• The earthquake in Japan has reportedly damaged the Sugo race circuit there. A minor issue in the greater context, certainly. [Jalopnik]

• So what's happened to Joey Logano? Sliced Bread has gone ... rather stale! (Sorry. Really sorry.) [Racin' Today]

• Bristol now has variable banking as opposed to straight banking. Did that save the racing surface ... or destroy it? (Cue creepy music.) [The NASCAR Insiders]
