The 2021 Nascar season has featured a car with the Dogecoin logo of a Shiba Inu in several races.
A Voyager-sponsored car has also featured the names of several cryptocurrencies on the car.
Could a car with the popular Shiba Inu coin be the next crypto-themed Nascar?
What Happened: Shiba Inu coin SHIB/USD could be featured on a Nascar car driven by Landon Cassill if owners of the coin can convince Stephen Ehrlich.
Voyager Digital Ltd VYGVF CEO Stephen Ehrlich responded to a Twitter Inc TWTR post calling for Shiba Inu to be featured on the Nascar Xfinity Series car sponsored by Voyager.

Landon Cassill became the first Nascar driver to receive their entire paycheck in cryptocurrency.
The driver is being paid via a portfolio of cryptocurrency that includes Bitcoin BTC/USD and Litecoin LTC/USD. Casill and the car are being sponsored by Voyager Digital for 19 races.
Why It’s Important: Ehrlich’s response has sent off a frenzy of Shiba Inu fans and coin holders to open Voyager accounts, post screenshots on Twitter, and leave reviews of the cryptocurrency trading platform’s app.
The Dogecar driven by Stefan Parsons got a ton of publicity for Dogecoin DOGE/USD, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies at the time.
The car crashed at the recent Tennessee Lottery 250 race, which also led to some memes and posts about the price of Dogecoin falling after the crash.

The Nascar Xfinity series races air on NBCSN, a unit of Comcast Corporation CMCSA.
A racecar featuring the Shiba Inu logo could also turn into a merchandising effort similar to the Dogecar.
Price Action: Dogecoin is trading at $0.239 at the time of writing, having lost 5.77$ overnight. Shiba Inu coin is trading at $0.000007144, down 1.48%.
