Wow oh wow how things change in America, on a dime.
What started out as a live interview following a NASCAR race has turned into a movement.
In spite of the Social Justice Warriors at NASCAR trying to put an end to the reach of the driver behind the FJB movement, a huge deal was just announced which is sure to have the Biden team losing their collective leftist mind.
NASCAR rejected the sponsorship of LGBCoin for a car driven to be driven by Brandon Brown over the ‘Let’s go Brandon’ chant. According to Yahoo! Sports, president Steve Phelps stated before the final race of the season, ‘We do not want to associate ourselves with politics, the left or the right.’
What looked like a downer for Brown just turned around for the NASCAR Xfinity Series driver. Mr. Brown just signed a whopping two-year sponsorship deal with LGBcoin, the cryptocurrency inspired by the anti-Joe Biden ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ chant after he was banned from advertising the brand on his race car.
LGBcoin doubled down on their backing of Brown, who they said ‘symbolizes everything great in this country’ and said they would sponsor him even if their name never appeared on his car.
The eight-figure deal ‘will include personal participation in publicity events, videos, crypto conferences, racing-related events and more, though won’t include car decals,’ according to a press release issued by the brand on Friday.

Brown is now a ‘holder’ of the currency, the release stated, and his spokesperson confirmed to FOX Business that he is being paid in ‘both cash and coin.’
‘I’m working to achieve my own American dream,’ Brown said in the release. ‘I’m humbled and thankful for LGBcoin.io’s reaffirmed support for my professional journey and their commitment to maintain a patriotic message.’
How this all started
Brown was much lesser known before he unintentionally sparked the anti-Biden chant after NBC sports reporter Kelli Stavast confused the crowd jeering ‘f*** Joe Biden’ for ‘Let’s Go Brandon!’ at a NASCAR event in Alabama on October 2.
Mr. Brown wasn’t listening to the crowd when he was basking in his win. He first noticed that he had become a meme when he checked Twitter, which he uses almost exclusively for tweeting about NASCAR, with the occasional mild joke thrown in, for his nearly 30,000 followers.
He thought it was kind of funny, and a couple of days later he tweeted the phrase, followed by, “*not political … just feelin myself.” He tried another line later that week: “To all the other Brandon’s out there, You’re welcome! Let’s go us.”
To all the other Brandon’s out there, You’re welcome!
Let’s go us

NASCAR has previously given Brown written permission to use LGBcoin as a sponsor on his car but they did a U-turn on the day he unveiled the new paint job, and claimed the controversial sponsorship was not cleared by senior bosses, CNN reported.
He was called and told that the racing body ‘apologized for any confusion and miscommunication,’ and said that the deal ‘needs to be reviewed at a higher level.’
Brown previously told The New York Times that had been unable to get a sponsor because of the chants, adding that he had ‘zero desire to be involved in politics.’
‘This whole Talladega race win was supposed to be a celebration, and then it was supposed to be something that I was able to use to move up, and I really wanted to capitalize on that,’ Brown said to The Times. ‘But with this meme going viral, it was more of, I had to stay more silent, because everybody wanted it to go on to the political side. I’m about the racing side.’
