Michael Jordan’s 23XI Racing will enter a third car in next month’s NASCAR Cup Series race in Nashville, Tenn., with Corey Heim behind the wheel in his first appearance for the team.

It will be the fourth time 23XI has entered a third car. Travis Pastrana finished 11th at the 2023 Daytona 500, while Kamui Kobayashi had a pair of finishes in the back of the pack, including a 29th-place result in March at Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas.

The 21-year-old Heim has been making a name for himself in the NASCAR Truck Series, where he has seven career wins.

Heim made his NASCAR Cup Series debut at Dover Motor Speedway on April 28 as a fill-in driver for Legacy Motor Club and finished 25th. He also raced at Kansas on Sunday and finished 22nd after a spin-out on the last lap.

When he takes part in the Ally 400 at Nashville Superspeedway on June 30, Heim will be behind the wheel of the No. 50 car with Mobil 1 as primary sponsor.

23XI’s full time drivers are Bubba Wallace in the No. 23 car and Tyler Reddick in the No. 45. Reddick is currently fifth in the overall standings with a win at Talladega on April 21 and has four top-10 finishes. Wallace is currently 16th overall standings with three top-10s.
