Mark Martin using Twitter hacker’s ‘Epic Swag’ name for his race car

Mark Martin had his Twitter account hacked over the weekend, so he’s returning the favor by taking something from the hacker.

Martin will replace his name with the phrase “Epic Swag” on his No. 55 car for this weekend’s races at Auto Club Speedway. The reason is pretty simple.

When Martin clicked on a malicious link through Twitter, he got locked out of his account, all his tweets were deleted, his settings were changed, and his Twitter name was changed to … epic swag. Martin, who is a rap music fan, is embracing the “epic swag” name.

“Epic Swag stole my name last Saturday so this weekend I’m stealing his,” he laughed. “We’ll run Epic Swag above the driver’s window where my name is usually. What do they say: ‘turnabout is fair play.'”

I think I speak for most people when I say Martin is handling this wonderfully. I certainly think “Epic Swag” is a much better nickname than Viagra Man.
