In an interview, Jordan candidly expressed his feelings: “This is even worse because I have no control. If I was playing basketball, I have total control, but I have no control, so I live vicariously through these guys and all of the team and everybody.” His love for the sport runs deep, rooted in memories of attending NASCAR races with his father at tracks like Charlotte, Rockingham, Darlington, and Talladega.

For Jordan, NASCAR replaces the competitiveness he once thrived on in basketball. As he stood in Victory Lane, he radiated joy, celebrating with the vigor of a fan who had become an integral part of the racing world. His commitment to 23XI Racing is unwavering, and each victory solidifies his place not only as a basketball legend but also as a force to be reckoned with in the racing realm.
