Kyle Busch Motorsports announced Wednesday that BitPay will be the primary brand featured on Justin Boston’s No. 54 Toyota Tundra in the NextEra Energy Resources 250 at Daytona Int’l Speedway on Feb. 20.
BitPay is the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor which enables businesses to accept bitcoin payments. Its signature blue and white logo will adorn Boston’s Tundra for the season-opening event.
Bitcoin is a digital currency that has recently been making headlines. It is the fastest and most secure payment method in the world. Businesses such as Microsoft, Newegg, WordPress and Tiger Direct are some of the 50,000 businesses accepting bitcoin payments through BitPay’s platform. The financial technology company has chosen to enter NASCAR with KBM and Boston. This will be the first NASCAR Camping World Truck Series start for Boston with KBM, and his second career start in the series. He will be competing for the Sunoco Rookie of the Year award this season.
“I couldn’t be more excited about having this opportunity to represent the BitPay brand on and off the track,” said Boston. “BitPay is a global leader in bitcoin payment processing and they are at the forefront of shaping how we all spend money in everyday life.”
“NASCAR is watched by millions of people all over the world,” said Stephanie Wargo, Vice President of Marketing for BitPay. “Through this exposure and working with Justin and KBM, we hope to help raise awareness about the bitcoin technology and our company’s platform.”

Int’l Speedway in August.
