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.”

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