What would you do if you woke up on a random weekday morning only to see an extra $181 million sitting in your cryptocurrency wallet?
Well, that’s exactly what faced NASCAR Truck Series Keith McGee on Thursday morning.
According to a tweet from McGee, the driver woke up on Thursday to a cool $181 million of SHIB in his account.
So what did McGee do?
It’s important to preface this with the fact that McGee is a part-time driver in need of sponsorship money, so much so that he recently announced the inability to secure enough funding to run next weekend’s NASCAR Camping World Truck Series finale at Phoenix Raceway.
But even with the sting of having to miss next week’s race still fresh, McGee opted for the high road, revealing to TobyChristie.com that he has contacted Coinbase, a cryptocurrency exchange, about the error with the intention of returning the funds.
At the time of writing, Coinbase has yet to reply to McGee’s contact attempts.
McGee has started five Truck Series races this season, scoring a season-best 10th-place finish at Talladega earlier this month.
McGee has also competed in the NASCAR K&N PRO Series West in recent years, totaling five starts from 2018-19.
