Michael Jordan is one of the greatest basketball players in history. He is known for his mentality and how he played the game. MJ is also the owner of the Charlotte Hornets.
He signed Bubba Wallace back in 2020 as his first racing driver as a NASCAR team owner. During his talk, he mentioned that one of the goals was to: “educate a new audience and open more opportunities for Black people in racing”.
Moreover, when the legendary player announced he had purchased the team during his speech, he commented on his goal of diversifying the sport: “Historically, Nascar has struggled with diversity and there have been few Black owners,” Jordan stated. “The timing seemed perfect as Nascar is evolving and embracing social change more and more.”
The most recent NASCAR race is the Xfinity race in Nashville. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect. On social media, pictures are going viral, showing Jordan having a good time with New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara.
