Brandon Brown is set to be sponsored by cryptocurrency meme coin LGBcoin but it has not been approved by NASCAR yet.
After Brown’s Talladega victory, the ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ catchphrase became popular in right-wing political circles. LGB.coin.io took upon that catchphrase for their coin that is based on the Ethereum blockchain.
And it turns out now that they are going to be the primary sponsor for the No. 68 Brandonbilt Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro next year. They plan to reinterpret the slogan in a more positive light.
“We are thrilled to partner with Brandonbilt Motorsports and Brandon Brown for the 2022 NASCAR Xfinity Series season,” said James Koutoulas, LGBcoin HODLer and founder of Typhoon Capital Management. “Brandon is not only an incredibly talented driver, but also a thoughtful individual wise beyond his years. His commitment and singular focus on his profession is inspiring and his personal story is one that we can all be proud of—an American story of success and perseverance. Brandon is truly America’s Driver.
“We are proud to support Brandon this season, to help him continue his American dream. If we do our job right, when you think of us, and you hear, ‘Let’s Go Brandon,’ you’ll think and feel, ‘Let’s Go America.’”
Brandon too is happy with the sponsorship of LGBcoin.
“Having the financial support of LGBcoin is incredible, especially at such a pivotal time in our team’s growth as we work to build to the next level of competition. From wondering if we would have the financial means to continue to compete, to my first major win (at Talladega no less), to becoming an unintentional meme, this past season was a rollercoaster. The support of sponsors like LGBcoin empowers us to be as competitive as possible and I’m looking forward to competing hard on the track in 2022.”
However, NASCAR hasn’t approved of the sponsorship yet and the team “jumped the gun” in making it public.
