Attention NASCAR fans! On Friday, February 21, you’ll get your chance to ask Ryan Newman any question you’d like.
That’s right, from 4:30 p.m. ET to 5:30 p.m. ET, Ryan Newman will be answering fans’ questions on Reddit in a post called an Ask Me Anything (AMA).
What Is Reddit?
Reddit is an online community made up of millions of people who post user-generated content, news articles and pictures. Posts are divided into subreddits, which are mini-communities broken up by interests, subject matters and help forums. For example, if you’re interested in all things technology, you can visit Reddit.com/r/Technology to get all of your tech news and advice in one place.
The Newman AMA will be taking place in the r/NASCAR community, where discussion revolves around all things NASCAR, 24/7. Topics of discussion range from new paint schemes to post-race scuffles.
How Will the AMA Work?
At 4:00 p.m. ET on Friday the 21st, a post will go up on Reddit.com/r/NASCAR announcing that Ryan will be answering questions from Reddit users, beginning at 4:30 p.m. ET. Once that post is live, users can start posting comments, which Ryan will respond to. While he may not get to all questions and comments, he’ll do his best to answer as many as he can!
How Do You Sign Up?
Signing up for Reddit is simple. All you need is a valid email address.
Here are the steps for registering:
Step 1: Head over to Reddit.com/r/NASCAR.
Step 2: In the upper right-hand corner of the page, you’ll click on “login or register.” A box will pop up, and on the left side of that box you’ll fill in a username, recovery email and password. Once done, you’re a registered member of the Reddit community!
How Do You Leave a Comment/Question and How Will You Know if Ryan Replies?
Once you’re registered, you may click on the AMA announcement post, which will take you to a page that looks like this:
You’re in! Now simply type your comment/question into the comment box, then click “save.” Comments will appear on this thread in order of popularity (users can “upvote” comments via the arrows found on the left side of posts).
If you’d like to reply to other users, just click the “reply” link that appears directly under each comment. A text box will pop up, and you’ll be able to add your reply to a specific user.
Ryan Newman’s replies will be highlighted in green under the username “QuickenLoansRacing.” While the AMA is taking place, you should refresh your browser so Ryan’s most recent comments appear on the thread.
Since Ryan will be trying to answer as many questions as he can, there’s a good chance he’ll get to yours. If the envelope in the top right-hand corner of the page turns orange, that means someone (Ryan or another user) has responded to your post. If the response is from “QuickenLoansRacing,” then Ryan himself has answered your question!
