It had been rumored for a few weeks, if not months, that Denny Hamlin was planning to start a new NASCAR team with Michael Jordan as co-owner. That was finally made official last night, with Bubba Wallace named the driver. Jordan said if he was going to be the first majority black owner in the last several decades then he wanted a black driver, so with Bubba being a free agent this was perfect timing. As much as I can't stand Denny Hamlin, I was a big fan of MJ growing up (weren't we all?) and I've pulled for Bubba as an underdog for a few years so I hope this is successful. Other athletes/musicians/celebrities have tried this and failed because they didn't realize how expensive it is to be competitive, but none of them had MJ's money either.
