Josh Wise sits behind the wheel of the #98 car in the Sprint Cup Series. He currently does not have a sponsor. NASCAR, like most motorsports, is damn near impossible to compete in without funding. So Reddit decided to take Josh Wise beneath their collective wing, by trying to sponsor his car with their new favorite cryptocurrency, dogecoin. I jumped on the dogecoin bus awhile back, as you can tell by the donation button in the sidebar, that’s going well….. Regardless, Reddit is excited, Josh is excited:

Fundraising just opened and when I checked about 75k dogecoins had been donated, about $60. It will take $55,000 to sponsor the car. They’re even holding a paint job contest over a r/NASCAR to design Wise’s car.
