It’s National Unfriend Day! Who unfollowed who in the world of NASCAR social media? Let’s take a look…

Jimmie Johnson and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. probably hit “unfriend” simultaneously. Theirs was the unlikeliest of feuds, yet for some reason, they kept finding each other on track. Despite the unfriending, they will keep using their nicknames for each other – “(Expletive)ing Ricky” and “(Expletive)ing Jimmie.”

What we thought would be a year where Kyle skillfully defended his championship turned into a season-long, Nomex-shredding atomic wedgie on Kyle. It has been unfriended, blocked and reported. If given the choice between re-living 2020 and being stuck in an elevator with Joey Logano for 12 hours, he’d press the door-close button and start the timer.

We’ve not had the greatest relationship with the sky, but 2020 was the final straw. After countless weather delays, we have unfriended the sky. We’re done. When we don’t have rain tires, you make it rain. When we DO have rain tires, you make it rain so hard that pontoons are necessary. Hell, we might still be waiting to finish the Texas race, I don’t even know.

This took place after Las Vegas in February. You remember – the contact on track, followed by Myatt’s ice-cold dismissal of Gragson’s hey-man-we-cool fist-bump attempt. These guys are so young that “unfriending” might be too archaic a term for them. Maybe more like “Myatt refuses to duet on any of Noah’s TikToks” or something like that.

This one occurred after the Texas truck race. Eckes clicked firmly on the “unfriend” button, probably with a different finger than he showed Ben Rhodes.

When the friendship becomes extremely one-sided, and one individual has caused the other to endure so much unwanted overtime, it’s time for a clean break.

Allgaier was NOT pleased with Allmendinger at Daytona in August. He marched right over to AJ’s car after the race where they had a heated short-guy discussion. That said, AJ’s harsh words lit a fire inside Allgaier, who won his first race of the season the following week. Hopefully this one gets resolved. These two buy their clothes at the same Gap For Kids.

Burton mashed the “unfriend” button after the two “fought” after the Xfinity Series race at Kentucky. The word “fought” is in quotes because it wasn’t really a fight. It was one of those one-swing, fall-to-the-ground, wait-for-people-to-break-it-up incidents that disappoint us so greatly.

Once the lap counter realized that Tyler was no longer paying attention to him at Homestead, it was over. Unfriend.

This relationship was on the rocks for a while but this was the year that the official unfriending happened. Matt is done with clothing forever.
