Much Wow: Dogecoin Returns to NASCAR on Stefan Parsons’ Car

Stefan Parsons will run Dogecoin sponsorship on the No. 99 car for BJ McLeod Motorsports in the NASCAR Xfinity Series for Las Vegas Motor Speedway, alongside already-announced sponsor Springrates, Springrates announced March 2.

Dogecoin, a cryptocurrency, previously sponsored Josh Wise in a handful of NASCAR Cup Series races. Because of Dogecoin’s popularity as an Internet meme, Wise was voted into the 2014 All-Star Race by fans, particularly those on Reddit.

Wise’s car was owned by Phil Parsons, who is Stefan Parsons’ father.

“Having the opportunity to run a scheme that has an incredible story from my dad’s race team is something I am so proud to do,” Parsons said in a release. “When Josh ran the Dogecoin car in 2014, I was much younger and remember being so excited at the fact that the Dogecoin community and Reddit came together to make it happen. At the time, I also wished it were me in the seat. So to have the chance for Dogecoin to ride along with Sean and me in Las Vegas is a dream come true.”

Parsons has one top-15 finish at Daytona International Speedway this season in two starts.

The NASCAR Xfinity Series competes this weekend at Las Vegas on March 6 at 4:30 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1.
