Just a few hours prior, Keith McGee stated that he lacked funding to race the race at Phoenix
Keith McGee has run 5 NASCAR Truck Series races in 2021. He’s entered with multiple teams as he attempts to search around and find his footing in the sport.
His debut NASCAR season has been unconventional to say the least. McGee has done some wild things just to get here. The wildness continued this week.
Earlier this year, McGee placed signs around North Carolina an an attempt to get Mr. Beast on a NASCAR Truck.
Just a few weeks ago, McGee sent gambler Mikki Mase a message asking to put Mase’s face on his car at Las Vegas if he gambled $10,000 to McGee’s own money. Mase recently stuffed $4.5-million in a casino video that went viral.
Mase agreed, McGee pulled out his final $10,000 from the bank and boarded a plane to Vegas.
Within hours at the casino, the $10,000 was gone. However, Mase pulled out $10,000 of his own. $13,000 more, gone. Later, Mase climbed from the hole, making it up to $40,000 before dropping down to just $2,000. After dinner, Mase finally brought the total up to $81,000 in the wild roller coaster ride.
On top of landing the funding to go race he also picked up sponsors along the way. Boyd Gaming, Banger Buddy and Hey Big Mike all stepped up to sponsor the Las Vegas truck.
But, McGee’s 2021 season has just become a movie…
$181 million appears
Earlier this week, McGee stated that he lacked funding to compete at Phoenix Raceway.
“Sadly I was unable to secure funding for the one race I have been looking forward to the most all season. With that my 2021 season has come to an end. Thank you to all the partners that helped me reach some many goals this year. Time to start working on 2022.”
Roughly 15 hours later, Keith McGee’s SHIB crypto wallet was worth $181,095,612.30.
Some of the funds in the wallet were actually McGee’s, about $12,000. The other $181 million is misplaced.
The funding to for him and his entire family to go racing, for life was secured. However, instead of cashing out and going racing, McGee pointed out the error and continues to look for the rightful owner.
McGee took to twitter, “Hey coinbase I woke up to having $181 million extra dollars in my account that doesn’t belong to me and I would like to return it.”
As of late this week, Coinbase had yet to respond to McGee after pointing out the error. The funds remain in his account.
McGee is a veteran of the United States Air Force. He then switched to racing the ARCA Menards Series before jumping up to the NASCAR Truck Series at age 40.
The drivers career best best finish came at Talladega Superspeedway, finishing 10th.
