UPDATED 7:30 p.m. ET

Super Bowl LI (also known as Super Bowl 51) is underwayΒ in Houston.

A quick check of social media shows NASCAR on NBC analyst and former crew chief Steve Letarte taking things seriously with his allegiance to the Patriots.

Fellow Pats fan Joey Logano — who, like Letarte, is at the game — may beΒ feeling a bit down.

Logano posted a poll to find out who his Twitter followers were pulling for in the big game — and unfortunately, more are pulling for the rival Falcons than Logano’s Patriots.

We also have some tweets from Elliott Sadler, NASCAR on NBC analyst Jeff Burton, Kenny Wallace, Kasey Kahne, David Ragan, Samantha and Kyle Busch, Kevin Harvick and others. Even the Pope weighed in (via Max Papis).

Check out the following (because this is done chronologically, the most recent updates are near the end):

Three weeks before their own version of the Super Bowl, the Daytona 500 on Feb. 26, lots of NASCAR folks are headed to Houston this weekend for Super Bowl 51 on Sunday.

And some are even putting their money where their mouths are, as can be seen by the wager between New England Patriots fan Joey Logano and Atlanta Falcons fan and Georgia native David Ragan.

We scoured the Twitter-verse for some day-before-the-big-game posts from the likes of Denny Hamlin, Steve Letarte, Todd Bodine, Samantha Busch, Jeff Gordon, Parker Kligerman and others.
