23XI Racing announced today that the United States Air Force, the world’s preeminent airpower, will serve as a primary partner with Bubba Wallace and the No. 23 Toyota Camry XSE team for several races during the 2024 NASCAR Cup Series season. The partnership will include, among other aspects, a primary paint scheme and firesuit that will be unveiled at a later date. The U.S. Air Force has been a team sponsor in NASCAR since 2001 and will be reunited with Wallace, having previously sponsored his car.
The partnership between 23XI and the U.S. Air Force brings together two organizations with similar core values and missions. Both 23XI and the Air Force strive for integrity, teamwork and excellence and believe that our differences make us stronger. The partnership supports the Air Force’s mission of inspiring, engaging and recruiting the next generation of Airmen.
Throughout the year, 23XI and Wallace will host the public and Airmen at races across the country to highlight not only the excitement of NASCAR, but also the many ways in which careers and roles in the Air Force correspond to those at 23XI and in motorsports.
“It’s really special to once again be partnered with the men and women who make up the United States Air Force,” said Wallace. “My previous experience with the folks from the Air Force was awesome and I had the chance to meet a lot of great Airmen who do some amazing things each and every day. I’m looking forward to welcoming them to 23XI and showing them what we’re all about as we work together to try and accomplish the impossible.”
“The Air Force and 23XI recognize that teamwork is the most critical component in achieving success,” said Steve Lauletta, 23XI team president. “We look forward to moving forward together to achieve our collective goals both on the track and in the broader community.”
“We are thrilled to enter into this new partnership with 23XI Racing, and to once again have Bubba Wallace as our Air Force driver. This dynamic and iconic organization shares our commitment to excellence, speed, and teamwork, along with winning,” said Brigadier General Christopher Amrhein, AFRS commander. “This collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for us to connect with millions of passionate NASCAR fans and showcase the power and capabilities of the Air Force. Together, we will soar to new heights and inspire the next generation of Airmen leaders and innovators. Buckle up, because this partnership is set to accelerate our shared mission of excellence on and off the track.”
