Inspired by the Michael Jordan’s iconic Concord 11’s from 1996.
While the 23xi Racing team continues to compete at the highest level of NASCAR at the hands of Michael Jordan, inspiration from his all-star NBA career finds its way into the sport of automotive racing. After showcasing an early season racing livery that mimics the styling of the Air Jordan 3 ‘Black Cement’ colorway, 23xi Racing is back with yet another sneaker-inspired design for the #45 Toyota of NASCAR veteran Kurt Busch. The NASCAR professionals at 23xii are proud to showcase Kurt Busch’s new racing livery inspired by the iconic Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’, a legendary silhouette most recognized during Michael Jordan’s performance at the 1996 NBA Playoffs.
The exterior of the #45 Toyota is split in black and white just as the Concord 11s come, using a wavy center line to separate the plush white mesh and black patent leather of the basketball sneaker. With a logo on the heel that highlights MJ’s notorious dunk pose, 23xi Racing incorporates the Jumpman onto the lightweight hood of the race car with its well-known insignia. Kurt Busch sports the #45 to commemorate one of the numbers worn by Michael during his career, while teammate Bubba Wallace takes the world-famous #23. Tune into NASCAR Cup Series Federated Auto Parts 400 race on August 14th to see Kurt Busch take the track behind the wheel of his Air Jordan 11 ‘Concord’ inspired Toyota race car.
