Basketball legend Michael Jordan has agreed to purchase a NASCAR Cup Series Charter and Bubba Wallace will be the driver for “His Airness” and partner Denny “The opportunity to own my own racing team in partnership with my friend, Denny Hamlin , and to have Bubba Wallace driving for us

Michael Jordan practices waving the green flag before a NASCAR all-star race at Charlotte Motor Speedway in 2010. Fox Sports reported Monday that the team owned by Jordan and Hamlin had purchased a charter from Germain Racing.

One of the top current NASCAR drivers and one of the greatest NBA players ever is getting in on NASCAR team ownership. Denny Hamlin revealed on social media that he and Michael Jordan will own a single car Cup Series team in 2021 with Bubba Wallace as the driver.

For the past month, this was one of those rumors that was floating out there but many were hesitant to believe. MJ is a lifelong NASCAR fan, is friends with Hamlin, and has been to races but being a fan and being a team owner are two different things. And given it’s so difficult to win in NASCAR, that might be tough for someone who was so used to winning as a player.

Denny Hamlin and Bubba Wallace are along for the ride. NBA billionaire Michael Jordan is launching a new Nascar Cup race team to start competing during the 2021 season. The team will include a couple of racing heavyweights, with three-time Daytona 500 winner Denny Hamlin serving

Hamlin didn’t reveal much other than he, MJ, and Bubba would be teaming up but recent speculation has them possibly taking over the assets and a charter of another team and obtaining factory support from Toyota. At the same time of the Hamlin/Jordan/Wallace announcement, team owner Bob Germain announced that he sold Germain Racing, no doubt fueling speculation that the two stories are connected.

As far as Wallace is concerned, this was a total wild card destination of potential places he could’ve ended up in 2021. Richard Petty Motorsports wanted to keep Wallace on as a driver but he revealed he was leaving after this season. With a bunch of sponsorship at Wallace’s disposal, the team should have adequate funding on par with some of the top teams in NASCAR.

The Hamlin/MJ team announcement caps off a jam-packed day of NASCAR news. From Ross Chastain being named driver of Chip Ganassi’s #42 to Texas Motor Speedway reportedly getting the All-Star Race in exchange for giving up a Cup date to Circuit of the Americas to Hailie Deegan and her father Brian saying COVID-19 was a “hoax,” it was certainly an…interesting day in the sport.
