The 2022 season has been an unpredictable ride for the Idea of NBA Legend Michael Jordan and Joe Gibbs Racing driver Denny Hamlin, the 23X1 race. In its second season, the team running the Toyota Camry has experienced both ends of the racing spectrum, finishing as both the fastest and one of the weakest cars of the season, with machine reliability and pit stop mishaps being its constant companions .
The team entered their second car last time out after a stunning season as they only managed to claim a solo win Dude Wallace at the top of the charts Talledegasince they received permission to charter the No. 45 team. NASCAR Veteran and former Cup Series Champion Kurt Busch was signed as the second driver for the team, with two goals in hand. The first is to help the team establish itself as a force to be reckoned with and provide valuable pointers to their young driver, Bubba Wallace.

How is the 2022 NASCAR Cup season prayed for Bubba Wallace so far?
Bubba Wallace has been one of the faces of NASCAR and its journey to positive change over the past few years. The only full-time African American on the grid has been a voice of change for the sport and has proven to be a capable driver. The stunning 2021 season with then-new Team 23X1 was considered a rookie season for the team as they were expected to make it big No. 23 Camry by Wallace. That wasn’t the case for the youngster, however, as things have been going wrong for him for a long time.
Bad luck, mistakes and pit stop mishaps, these three words perfectly sum up how the 2022 season has gone so far for the No. 23 team. Bubba Wallace, who started the season with an impressive P2 result Daytona 500, the second in his career to raise fan expectations of the driver. But all of that proved wrong as he only managed to show his pace and skill once in the ensuing 16 races, including the All-Star race.
Bubba Wallace’s second-best run of the season came in Kansas, where his run to a safe podium was cut short by two pit stop mishaps. Although Wallace was able to show some pace at both Talledega and Atlanta, he fell near the end of the race, severely damaging his chances. Bubba Wallace has yet to secure a playoff spot, which he can only secure by winning one of the upcoming races, while his veteran teammate has already done so. To achieve this feat, a couple of perfect or clean runs from both driver and team for 23X1 are very much needed.

How is the 2022 NASCAR cup season prayed for Kurt Busch so far?
However, unlike his teammate veteran Kurt Busch, who while not a real contender for the championship, has already booked his spot in this year’s playoffs when it is convenient for him in the series for the upcoming races. The 2004 Cup Series champion, who has raced for most of the major teams and manufacturers in the sport, secured his place in the Cup playoffs after winning in 2022 Kansas Cup Race just before the All-Star race weekend.
Kurt Busch joined 23X1 early in the season after being fired from CGR when they sold their NASCAR interest to Trackhouse. Busch’s debut for the team was disappointing as he retired early at Daytona but has since proven himself to be a quality rider with raw front finishes when his No. 45 didn’t give him up or when he crashed. Kurt Busch, who went into mid-season 2021 this year with only 3 top 10s, has 6 top 10s, four of which are top finishes, along with his 4 top 20 finishes.
But at the same time, the veterans have also experienced some pure disappointments as he has finished outside the top 25 six times this season, which is uncharacteristic for a rider of his quality. Kurt Busch and his team should focus more on their car as there is definitely a need to make the car more reliable and the crew more efficient.
