Dale Earnhardt Jr.'s first victory of the season at Daytona International Speedway prompted him to join Twitter, and immediately he was taking selfies and showing a side of himself fans had never seen.

Joyfully that youthful exhuberance has continued and was on display after Sunday's win in the Pocono 400, making the Dale Jr. celebration aftermath must-see content on social media.

In fact, Junior addressed his love for social media in the post-race Q&A session with reporters. When asked if he'd have time to interact with his fans following yesterday's win, he said: "That interaction is unlike any other, and I get as much out of it, I think, as the fans that are following me. I've enjoyed it a lot, and wins like this certainly make it a whole lot more fun for everybody."

Of course, not everyone is a Dale Jr. fan, so does he respond to his "haters" on social media?

"No, I just favorite them and block them, " he said. "It's so much fun."

Here are some of the more interesting things that have gone on since the No. 88 crossed the finish line in first place at the Tricky Triangle (with a little Off Track commentary mixed in):
