It looks like the good people of the Dogecoin community have started a trend and it looks like Phil Parsons Racing and the Doge Driver himself, Josh Wise, will be the beneficiaries. After /r/Dogecoin raised $60,000 to sponsor Wise’s car at Talladega and voted him into the NASCAR All-Star Race, now online racing sim iRacing is getting fans to help out Wise and Phil Parsons Racing.
The ultimate underdoge story didn’t have the ultimate underdoge ending but for a little team that often doesn’t have sponsorship, this weekend had to have been the best in their history. Josh Wise and the #98 Dogecoin car of Phil Parsons Racing toppled Danica Patrick in the All-Star Fan Vote to qualify for the All-Star Race and came home 15th in the 23 car field.
The Dogedriver and the #98 Dogecoin car are in the running for a spot in this weekend’s NASCAR All-Star Race. Josh Wise and his #98 Dogecoin car fielded by Phil Parsons Racing are currently in the top ten in voting for the Fan Vote spot in the All-Star Race. After the sponsorship support from /r/Dogecoin earlier this month in Talladega, Wise and PPR also gave Dogecoin sponsorship of its car in the exhibition All-Star Race.
In addition to the driver voted in by fans, the All-Star Race includes race winners since the start of the 2013 season, past Cup champions, past All-Star race winners and the top two finishers of the All-Star Showdown qualifying race.
You can vote at NASCAR.com/SprintFanVote. If you have the official NASCAR app, your vote counts for double.
Much vote. Very democracy. Wow.
I may have been away last weekend but I was keeping close tabs on the NASCAR race from Talladega. That’s because the community over at /r/Dogecoin sponsored the #98 Phil Parsons Racing Ford for the race at Talladega. Their funding didn’t go unrewarded because the #98 Dogecoin car, piloted by Josh Wise, finished in 20th place on Sunday.
