Bubba Wallace will not be driving the No. 23 Toyota when 23XI Racing makes its on-track debut.

It was confirmed on Wednesday that the team, co-owned by NASCAR star Denny Hamlin and NBA legend Michael Jordan, will be participating in the Busch Clash non-points race on the Daytona International Speedway road course.

However, since Wallace didn’t win any stage in the Cup race last season, he is not eligible to participate in the race. Instead, Ty Dillon, who won a stage in the Cup race at the Charlotte Roval, will be lining up as the driver for the new Cup Series team.

Wallace will have to wait until the Daytona 500 race to make his debut with 23XI Racing.

As for Dillon, he doesn’t have a full-time Cup ride for the 2021 season. He is also looking to participate in the Daytona 500 through an entry with Gaunt Brothers Racing.

And, he will be participating in at least four Xfinity Series races with Joe Gibbs Racing’s No. 54 team in the 2021 season.

  1. Bubba needs to take politics off the track and out of the garage.He drives over his head trying to be a star then gets others in trouble. He may be good someday, but learn along the way!!! These comments aren’t to be R because I don’t mean them to be.
