Using Continental's Twitter account @continentaltire, Dalziel will designate his tweets using the hashtag #RDalziel.

"To have the insight of a championship driver like Ryan is remarkable," said Travis Roffler, director of marketing for Continental Tire. "Ryan's knowledge and passion for sports car racing is second-to-none and we're grateful to have him as part of our social media team for this year's Rolex 24 at Daytona. We encourage fans to interact with Ryan throughout the race week and we look forward to his perspective in real-time."

"They are a really fun brand so I look forward to taking over for the Rolex 24 hour weekend and giving everyone the behind-the-scenes tweets. I'll do my best to give you before and after stint updates, along with who I'm angry at on track, which during 24 hours, can be many drivers. Hope everyone enjoys the updates."

Fans are encouraged to ask the driver questions using the hashtag #RDalziel to the account @continentaltire. For the second year running, fans will be given an inside look at a drivers life on the paddock. Continental will also bring content via Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to their fans.
