Larson posts 'credit card' number online, freaks out Twitter
RELATED: Read more Inside Groove In celebration of winning his first 2017 Coors Light Pole Award at Auto Club Speedway, Kyle Larson took the No. 42 team out to dinner on Friday. A solid start to the season and the pole at @ACSupdates calls for a team dinner. Thanks @CreditOneBank for supporting the 42! pic.twitter.com/s1K7cdHMRt — Kyle Larson (@KyleLarsonRacin) March 25, 2017 Notice anything unusual? Yup, that looks like a credit card on display for Twitterverse, which promptly freaked out. @KyleLarsonRacin you didn't really just tweet your credit card number did you? — Alan Cavanna (@CopaCavanna) March 25, 2017 @KyleLarsonRacin @ACSupdates @CreditOneBank Oh no! Don't put your card number on the internet man!!! Haha — Chris Harvey (@ChrisHarvey33) March 25, 2017 @KyleLarsonRacin @ACSupdates @CreditOneBank just charged my chili bowl tickets! Lol — Greg H. (@gregherrera71) March 25, 2017 @KyleLarsonRacin @ACSupdates @CreditOneBank Hey bud!!! Cool for getting the pole. Better pull this pic, your card number is readable! — Mike McMillan (@McMillanMike) March 25, 2017 @KyleLarsonRacin @ACSupdates @CreditOneBank well, thanks for the tuition payment... — I'm gonna be a Dr... (@Jgmfan) March 25, 2017 But looks like the joke's on everyone else, as the numbers on the credit card read "1234 5678 9010" -- a promotional card. Oops. So, Kyle outsmarted Twitter and will start from the pole this Sunday at Auto Club Speedway -- but looking more closely at the bill, it also appears that the pizza and taco-loving driver is still not eating his vegetables.

Bubba, Blaney had front-row seat at WWE's Monday Night Raw
A queen and a boss battled, Ric Flair made an appearance and plenty of fists were being thrown. Safe to say, Ryan Blaney and Darrell Wallace Jr . weren't at the race track. NASCAR's dynamic duo took a trip to WWE's Monday Night Raw, where they got front-row seats to the big show in Charlotte, North Carolina. The event saw Sasha Banks -- "The Legit Boss" -- defeat the hometown wrestler Charlotte -- "The Queen" and Ric Flair's daughter -- to become Raw Women's champion for the third time. Blaney and Bubba not only got a close view of all the action-packed drama, they also went behind the scenes before the show. Take a look at their night: @NASCAR Drivers @Blaney @BubbaWallace race into Monday Night #Raw and snap a photo with @TitusONeilWWE ! pic.twitter.com/PH4iSwcVu7 — WWE (@WWE) November 29, 2016 See us on Monday night raw, coming up soon!!!! @WWE pic.twitter.com/cWY5rsDoJr — Darrell Wallace Jr (@BubbaWallace) November 29, 2016 Look close.
