Getting sponsored to drive a NASCAR is a hard feat, but driver Josh Wise got his dream when 'Reddit' users raised thousands of dollars to sponsor him. With the help of the forum website 'Reddit' and the 'Bitcoin' type website 'Dogecoin' Josh Wise became sponsored.

It is not very hard anymore to raise money for projects. With the creation of websites like 'Kickstarter' and 'Bitcoin' raising money is an easy task. All it takes to raise money is to have a dream and be convincing enough to have people fund you. The NASCAR driver Josh Wise got lucky when a Reddit user saw that Wise was still without a sponsor and suggested using 'Dogecoin' to have people help sponsor his car. Once the dust cleared from the pits, Josh Wise was a crowd-sponsored driver and was ready to start his engines for the NASCAR season.
