With the partnership, Kurt Busch will join team co-owner Denny Hamlin as a Jordan Brand athlete. Jordan Brand will serve as the primary partner on the No. 45 Toyota Camry TRD for multiple races and as an associate partner for the entire season.

“Adding Jordan Brand to the No. 45 team and Kurt Busch is a big step for our team,” 23XI Racing President Steve Lauletta said. “As a new team that is continuing to grow, we have the unique opportunity to do things differently as we grow our brand to be one that is identified as more than just a racing team. Partnering with Jordan Brand, which is recognizable around the world, allows us the opportunity to utilize both of our platforms to introduce new fans to our team.”
“The addition of Jordan Brand to the No. 45 team is big and being the second driver in NASCAR alongside Denny as a Jordan Brand athlete is a real honor,” Busch said. “The roster includes athletes that are known for excitement and success and that’s what I intend to bring to the track each weekend. As the 23XI team continues to grow, this partnership will help ensure we reach new audiences and I look forward to an impactful relationship.”
The Jordan Brand will make its debut with Busch and the No. 45 Toyota Camry TRD team at the Busch Light Clash at the LA Coliseum on Sunday, Feb. 6, 2022 and will have its first primary race later this season.
