The United States Air Force will reunite with Bubba Wallace this season as a primary sponsor on the No. 23 Toyota Camry in the NASCAR Cup Series.

Wallace drove a U.S. Air Force-sponsored car during his tenure at Richard Petty Motorsports (2018-2020, main image

). However, when Wallace became the flagship driver for 23XI Racing when the team debuted in 2021, the relationship ended as the U.S. Air Force was a Petty partner.

This season will be the first time the U.S. Air Force has worked with 23XI Racing. The organization did not specify how many races Wallace will carry the U.S. Air Force colors in.

“It’s really special to once again be partnered with the men and women who make up the United States Air Force,” Wallace said. “My previous experience with the folks from the Air Force was awesome and I had the chance to meet a lot of great Airmen who do some amazing things each and every day. I’m looking forward to welcoming them to 23XI and showing them what we’re all about as we work together to try and accomplish the impossible.”

Wallace and the 23XI Racing team will host Airmen at races throughout the season.

“The Air Force and 23XI recognize that teamwork is the most critical component in achieving success,” said Steve Lauletta, 23XI team president. “We look forward to moving forward together to achieve our collective goals both on the track and in the broader community.”

The U.S. Air Force has been a team sponsor in NASCAR since 2001. Wallace’s U.S. Air Force paint scheme and firesuit will be unveiled at a later date.

“We are thrilled to enter into this new partnership with 23XI Racing, and to once again have Bubba Wallace as our Air Force driver. This dynamic and iconic organization shares our commitment to excellence, speed, and teamwork, along with winning,” said Brigadier General Christopher Amrhein, AFRS commander. “This collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for us to connect with millions of passionate NASCAR fans and showcase the power and capabilities of the Air Force. Together, we will soar to new heights and inspire the next generation of Airmen leaders and innovators. Buckle up, because this partnership is set to accelerate our shared mission of excellence on and off the track.”
