Beginning this May 2009, fans can follow IndyCar driver and team owner Sarah Fisher, of Sarah Fisher Racing (SFR), on Twitter as she attempts to qualify for her eighth Indianapolis 500. Along with updating fans throughout the month of May via "tweets", Fisher will at some point during the month of May giveaway a free 2-seater ride courtesy of the Indy Racing Experience in a real IndyCar at blistering speeds of nearly 180 miles per hour.Our buddy pressdog has a great list of others IndyCar types on twitter.

"Someone asked me the other day what Twitter was, and I said 'Follow me and find out!'" said Fisher, who begins practice in her Dollar General Dallara today for the Indianapolis 500. "I'm really new to this 'Twitter' thing, but it's really exciting with how quickly it's taken off. I've always believed in giving back and, especially now, after last May. With that, we'll be updating you on the race team and how practice, appearances and the month are going, via Twitter. We'll also giveaway that 2-seater ride to one lucky fan, so keep following."
Fans can follow Fisher for free via her Twitter account, SarahFisher67, where Fisher will offer an Indy Racing Experience 2-seater ride redemption coupon sometime during the month of May. In addition to the hallmark 2-seater ride opportunity, fans will be given an inside track to the inner workings of SFR, being an owner/driver and getting updates from pit lane in real time.
