The NASCAR team owner and Professional Car Driver Denny Hamlin looks pretty sure that he’ll be seeing more of Michael Jordan now, after the NBA legend sold most of his ownership of the Charlotte Hornets. The sale of $3 billion of the stake with the Hornets will give Jordan more time to spend on NASCAR and 23 XI racing.
Hamlin about Jordan
Hamlin recently stated that Jordan is attending more meetings now, and now he wants to be on every branding email. Denny thinks that this can be interesting because he has some more time and will probably use it more on the race team. The 42-year-old also said that although Jordan is no longer the owner of the Hornets, he will keep his season tickets. MJ invested in the NASCAR team before selling his majority ownership of the Hornets. 23 XI Racing introduced a car for the 2021 Cup series, with Bubba Wallace driving the No. 23 car, a tribute to MJ’s NBA jersey.
23 XI has been growing amazingly in the last two years
In 2022, a new car was added, which was driven by 2004 NASCAR Cup Series champion Kurt Busch. Last month, the racing team and Toyota Racing Development introduced Tyler Reddick as their star signing. He will start competing next year. In the last two years, 23XI Racing has been going from strength to strength, and the sale of the Hornets will give the Chicago Bulls legend more energy and time to focus on motorsports.
MJ has a big collection of automobiles
Michael Jordan isn’t only a fan of motorsports; he also has a collection of some of the most sought-after automobiles. The latest version of the Jordan is the most expensive one, and it is the Hennessey Venom F5 Revolution Roadster, which costs between $3 and $4 million. Only 24 F4 Revolution Roadsters will be made, so it is safe to say that Jordan already has one of the rarest cars ever built.
