From 2004 to 2014, Air Jordan ran the “Michael Jordan Motorsports Racing Team. This team experienced both downfall and success for a decade. It finished as low as 35th one year and as high as 3rd another. However, they eventually shut down due to the mounting financial commitment. Now came in NASCAR into the picture. 

Rather than taking years and millions of dollars to develop the technical expertise required to build a competitive car within NASCAR, Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing Team signed a partnership deal with Toyota & Joe Gibbs Racing, which is deemed as one of the smartest moves to enter the motorsport paddock. Now, these deals can pay anywhere from $5 million to $35 million annually and provide sponsors coverage on the car’s hood, rear quarter panel, TV panel, deck lid, and roof panel.
