Typically recognized as an underdog in NASCAR, Phil Parsons Racing and driver Josh Wise have been able to break the stereotypical mold this year with the support of the online community.
With successful crowd sourcing efforts on reddit behind funding for three primary race sponsorships of the No. 98 Chevrolet SS and the election of Wise into the Sprint All Star race, Phil Parsons Racing has formed another internet-based partnership.
This time, the “little team that could” will partner with the world’s premier motorsports racing simulation, iRacing. From May 27 through June 30, both new and current iRacing subscribers will have the opportunity to support Wise and Phil Parsons Racing through select purchases on the online racing simulation site.
“I am very excited about the partnership between iRacing and Phil Parsons Racing,” commented Wise. “I have used iRacing for the past six years as a training tool for my weekly NASCAR races because of how accurate their simulation and track layouts are. It has been such an awesome year for us with so much fan support on these projects, and this is another great way for fans to not only get a 60 percent discount on their membership, but also for the proceeds to go toward helping us build our program at PPR.
“It is also great to be continuing our relationship with reddit.com and its subreddits. Reddit was the internet’s best-kept secret for me until I was introduced to it earlier this year. It has been really fun to have fans so involved in our race program from the ground up, and I feel like this is another weekend where everybody can be a part of this and have fun.”
