Nascar driver Landon Cassill will be fully paid in cryptocurrencies after inking a sponsorship deal with crypto investing app Voyager, a first for the iconic auto racing company. 

His payout will be mainly comprised of Bitcoin and Litecoin.   

Cassill has been dabbling in crypto for several years, which is why the trailblazing move is "comfortable" for him:
