Michael Jordan Congratulates Bubba Wallace On Historic Win

Michael Jordan and NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin turned heads earlier in the year when they announced they’d be co-owning a team with Bubba Wallace as their first and only driver.

It’s been an up-and-down year for the “23XI” team, but on Monday, they were rewarded.

Bubba Wallace won his first ever NASCAR race, making him the first African-America driver to win since 1963.

After the race, Michael Jordan shared his own words of congratulations to his driver, Bubba Wallace.

“I’m so happy for Bubba and our entire 23XI team,” MJ said in a statement. “This is a historic win for us. From the day we signed him, I knew Bubba had the talent to win and Denny and I could not be more proud of him. Lets Go!”

Michael Jordan and the 23XI team announced recently that veteran driver Kurt Busch will be joining Bubba Wallace on the team next season.

Bubba’s win could be the first of many for MJ’s new NASCAR endeavor.
