23XI Racing is set to become a two-car organization from the 2022 season, but key details regarding such change are still missing.

23XI Racing began its operation in the Cup Series as a one-team organization with Bubba Wallace as the driver of the No. 23 car. However, the plan of the owner Denny Hamlin and Michael Jordan was bigger than what they started with.

While one of the plans was to win multiple Cup races starting from the first season, Wallace has certainly struggled to live up to expectations. Nonetheless, the team has realized another goal of expanding the organization to two teams from the 2022 season and have already signed Kurt Busch as the driver.

Wallace is still a young driver still looking for his first Cup win, adding veteran winner Kurt would certainly add more experience and success to the team. But, while, 23XI Racing may have added the current Chip Ganassi Racing driver to their lineup, they have not yet disclosed any information about the second charter.

There are rumours that there could be a deal with Front Row Motorsports and one of their two charters but it is uncertain yet on how many cars Front Row Motorsports plans to run in the 2022 season.

While the market has seen a number of charter purchases and sales, 23XI Racing are still not in the mix. There are also rumours that they would purchase the charter from StarCom Racing but it seems that Spire Motorsports would win the chase.

There is still plenty of time for the team to find another charter or they could run full time like JTG Daugherty Racing who operate with one chartered car and another non-chartered car.
