Tyler Reddick, the two-time Xfinity Series Champion, made a notable transition from Richard Childress Racing to Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing for the 2023 NASCAR Cup Series season. This move marked a significant milestone for Reddick, who aimed to leave a strong impression in his debut race with the new team. His victory at COTA not only fulfilled this objective but also secured his spot in the playoffs.

Following Reddick’s triumphant win at Talladega, Michael Jordan celebrated the victory by holding Tyler’s son, Beau. Bob Pockrass posed a question to Tyler regarding Beau’s familiarity with Jordan, asking whether he knew him as a basketball player or as a shoe company owner.

Tyler Reddick, driving for 23XI Racing, recently secured his sixth career victory at the GEICO 500 at Talladega Superspeedway. The excitement and joy that followed took everyone back to 1982 when Jordan hit the game-winning jump shot to give UNC its second NCAA men’s basketball championship after a 25-year drought. Jordan’s elation was palpable as he scooped up Reddick’s 4-year-old son, Beau, and carried him to victory lane.

Before big races like Daytona, Michael Jordan has his unique way of motivating Tyler Reddick. He playfully “busts” Reddick, reminding him of his Speedway finishes. It’s a friendly jab, but it fires up Reddick to perform at his best. Jordan’s competitive spirit from his basketball days now fuels his passion for NASCAR ownership.
