Michael Jordan’s racing team 23XI earned their first win as a primary sponsor as Kurt Busch came away with the victory on Sunday at the AdventHealth 400 in Kansas. And he did it in style.

Busch read the 45 car in a special Black Cement wrap that pays homage to the classic Air Jordan III model. He also wore a special race suit with the Black Cement theme and a giant Jumpman logo on it.

Following the race, Busch celebrated the team’s victory and now we have a comment from Jordan himself.

“Kurt ran a great race today and I’m so happy for him, the 45 crew and our entire 21XI racing team,” Jordan said following the race. “This win showed why Kurt is a champion and why we brought him on board.”

Busch was able to overcome a late rally by Kyle Larson to secure 23XI’s first Cup Series victory.
