Josh Wise put in a great Talladega drive in the Aaron’s 499, finishing 20th overall in the no. 98 Dogecoin sponsored Ford Fusion. In addition to introducing the digital crypto-currency to a mainstream audience, the race brought a lot of attention to Wise, who started 36th and charged through to the field to run as high as 13th during the race.
No news, yet, on whether the crowdfunded team will continue to run the Doge livery beyond Talladega, but the previously unsponsored Wise did his supporters proud this weekend, out-driving the more established (and significantly better funded) racers like Danica Patrick, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Jimmie Johnson. Hopefully, it’ll be enough to earn the kid some well-deserved sponsorship money.
Whether or not that happens, however- the Doge memes are fun. Here’s some video highlights of Wise’s run to fill the Doge-shaped void in our race coverage until we hear more. Enjoy!
