Michael Jordan Joins His Race Team
Michael Jordan showed up at Daytona International Speedway on Wednesday to watch Montez Stewart make his debut for the Jordan Brand race team. The beginning didn’t go smoothly.
Problems with Stewart’s Yamaha R-1 in this morning’s Repsol Superstock practice meant that Stewart, whose number is 123, didn’t record a time, forcing the Illinois resident into the first and slower of the two qualifying sessions. Further hampering his effort was a broken collarbone he suffered early in the last weekend’s CCS program.
Jordan spent the first qualifying session not in the pits, but out on the track where he could see his rider in action.
