If you've spent literally any time on Twitter over the past two weeks, chances are you've seen the below tweet -- because it's been retweeted more than three million times.

Yes, Carter Wilkerson is well on his way to receiving free chicken nuggets for a year from fast food chain Wendy's. All he has to do is get a measly 18 million retweets.

Considering he's roughly 18 percent of the way there at press time (still an accomplishment!), he could use a little help to pick up the slack and finish off the remaining 15 million retweets.

Insert Michael McDowell and Leavine Family Racing.

LFR will feature a large decal on the TV panel of the No. 95 WRL Chevrolet SS with the Twitter hashtag #NuggsForCarter in Sunday's Food City 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway (2 p.m. ET, FOX.) 

"I am blown away by all of the support!" Wilkerson said in a team release. "It all started out just for fun. I just really wanted some chicken nuggets. Now, we've raised more than $100,000 for charity and it just keeps growing. I've just about beat Ellen (DeGeneres, for this tweet, the most RT'ed ever), and I'm Twitter verified. I'm excited to see what's next."

Kind of makes you wonder how many retweets it would take for an unlimited supply of Frostys, no?
