Last month, the world found out that Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin are creating a new NASCAR Cup series team for the 2021 season with Darrell "Bubba" Wallace as the driver. But we only just learned the team's name.

Jordan and Hamlin announced Thursday that the newly created single-car team will be named 23XI Racing. It's pronounced "23 11" — a clear nod to the NBA legend's iconic No. 23 jersey as well as Hamlin's 15-year career in the No. 11 Joe Gibbs Racing car.

And although we don't officially know the manufacturer, it is however, expected to be Toyota they also announced that Wallace will drive the No. 23 car next season.

They also released the team's logo on social media.
