The No. 45 Toyota Camry will have a fresh look Sunday at Richmond Raceway (3 p.m. ET, USA Network, MRN, SiriusXM Radio) as 23XI Racing rocks the iconic Air Jordan 11 “Concord” edition on the car.

The scheme matches the white and black pattern of the shoe with the dark blue door number representing the sole color. On the front and rear of the No. 45 is the ‘Carolina Blue’ that gives a nod to co-team owner Michael Jordan’s college playing days at the University of North Carolina.
The Air Jordan was released in 1995 and was a part of Jordan’s rotation during the 1995-96 NBA season.
The No. 45 has a win this season with a Jordan Brand car as Kurt Busch won the spring race at Kansas Speedway to clinch a spot in the Cup Series playoffs. Busch has missed the last three Cup Series races with lingering concussion symptoms, and Xfinity Series regular Ty Gibbs has filled in.
