Even with countless videos and stories becoming viral sensations in the modern era of Twitter, 43,000 retweets is still a significant number of interactions on a single post — or at least Bubba Wallace thought so.

Thursday morning, that interaction went from social-media lark to “Let’s do it!”

Tuesday afternoon, Wallace posted a pair of photos detailing an up-close interaction with The King of NASCAR, Richard Petty. With a handful of bright-colored sharpies, Petty grabbed hold of Wallace’s left arm as he sat in the Petty-Blue car and signed his name in big, bold, silver letters.

Thus, the challenge ensued.

“43,000 RTs and I’ll get it tattooed,” the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series driver claimed — a number which he figured would be safe, keeping his forearm tattoo-free. But as the sun rose early Thursday morning the mark was surpassed, leaving the daunting question — will Bubba go through with it?

Based on his enthusiastic social media responses, we might see the young driver repping his new ink later this season.
