Last year in only their second year of NASCAR, the racing team  23XI Racing added a second car when they signed Kurt Busch to drive the 45 car and join Bubba Wallace, who drives the number 23.  With the retirement of Busch, Tyler Reddick will take over the driving duties of the number 45 car.

While not adding a third car for the entire year, team owners NBA Star Michael Jordan and NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin hope to have a third car in the Daytona 500 when for Motocross driver and stuntman Travis Pastrana makes an attempt to race in the 500.  Pastrana would have to race his way into the 500 with one of the Duel races.  Still over a month away, an official entry list for the Daytona 500 has not been released.

While he has never been behind the wheel of a Cup Series car, Pastrana is a racing veteran in the Xfinity Series.  He has also driven in the Gander RV and Truck Series (now Craftsman Truck Series) and Late Models.  He is a Rally Racing, Supercross, and Motocross champion; he has also won 16 gold medals in the X-Games.
