Michael Jordan is taking his talents to racecar driving.
On Monday, it was announced that the greatest player in NBA history was starting a NASCAR team alongside Denny Hamlin and that his first driver would be Bubba Wallace.
More to come….
Jordan’s name was first brought up as Wallace was negotiating to stay with Richard Petty Motorsports past the 2020 season and Jordan was mentioned as a potential investor into RPM. His representatives denied that on Aug. 27 to Fox Business.
“There is no truth to that rumor at all,” Jordan’s longtime spokesperson, Estee Portnoy, told FOX Business. “Michael Jordan is not considering an investment in NASCAR’s Richard Petty Motorsports.”
Clearly, there was plenty of truth to it.
