3. They voted Josh Wise #1 in the NASCAR All-Star Fan Vote . . . beating out the likes of Danica Patrick

If you would have told me one year ago that a relatively unknown race car driver that's sponsored by a cryptocurrency named after a meme of a shiba inu would win the fan vote . . . I would have called you crazy.

While it might seem like a joke to some, it's far from it to those involved. Once you read up on the community you will come to realize that they take it very seriously and believe in the Dogecoin. Such as this man who sold his home for Dogecoins.
