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.
