The car of Bubba Wallace becomes the recent addition to the Toyota injector

Debuting in the 2021 Cup Series campaign, 23XI Racing will make its first-ever start in the Daytona 500. The new team, co-founded by Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin, will have a single-car entry piloted by Bubba Wallace.

The team had earlier posted a few snapshots of Hamlin visiting their shop to check on the progress of Wallace’s car. As the tweet suggests, the No.23 Toyota Camry car has now been delivered to make its much-awaited first appearance on February 14.

Denny Hamlin reigns as the current Daytona 500 winner

The Joe Gibbs Racing driver had a splendid start to the 2020 season, winning the Daytona 500 last year. Naturally, that set up the platform for him to go on and secure six more wins in what was a fantastic regular season for him.

He will certainly look to make it a hat-trick of crowns, after winning in 2019 and 2020. Rest assured, he would be the man to beat for all rival drivers heading into the important race.
