Hamlin & Jordan Start New Cup Team, Wallace To Drive

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – NBA legend Michael Jordan and three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin have announced the formation of a new NASCAR Cup Series team that will begin competition starting next year. “The opportunity to own my own racing team in partnership with my friend, Denny Hamlin, and to have Bubba Wallace driving for us, is very exciting for me. Jordan will serve as principal owner of the new team, with Hamlin as a minority partner while he continues to drive the No. “Starting a race team has been something that Michael and I have talked about while playing golf together over the years, but the timing or circumstances were never really right,” said Hamlin. “We proudly welcome Michael Jordan into the NASCAR family, and look forward to watching Michael, Denny Hamlin and Bubba Wallace compete in 2021,” NASCAR officials said in a statement Monday night.
