Hall of Famer Jordan set for biggest leap yet into NASCAR

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Forget the green flag. NASCAR needs to roll out the red carpet when the Daytona 500 leads off the season on Sunday. Michael Jordan and Pitbull bring their A-list star power to the sport as team owners in 2021. Pitbull has an ownership stake in Trackhouse Racing with Daniel Suarez as the driver.  Jordan helped launch 23XI Racing with Bubba Wallace as the driver. It’s a high-profile pairing of a Black majority team owner and the only Black driver at NASCAR’s top level. And Wallace is taking the reigns from Jordan’s No. 23.
