For the second time this season, 23XI Racing is going to have one of their NASCAR Cup Series race cars look like an Air Jordan shoe. This time, it’s the Air Jordan “Concord” 11 which was last released for sale in 2018.
Inspired by the iconic Concord 11’s 😤👐 @Jumpman23

The car embodies all the unique details of the Michael Jordan shoe. The black and white primary design that adorns almost the entire car, the light blue bumpers that also form the outer edges of the shoe, and the purple number which is placed on the sole.
This car will be raced this upcoming weekend at Richmond Raceway. The first time an Air Jordan shoe became a 23XI paint scheme, Kurt Busch drove a car that looked like the “Black Cement” Jordan 3 to victory lane in Kansas. Unfortunately, Busch remains on the sidelines after suffering a concussion last month and Ty Gibbs will be piloting the #45 Toyota in his fourth race with the team.
Regardless of which person is driving the car, reaction has been rather positive on the design of the car.
Patent leather looks great in victory lane 👀 https://t.co/kIi0MrWfow
