With his team having been out of action since March, Charlotte Hornets owner Michael Jordan is finding ways to stay busy.

The Chicago Bulls legend has decided to start a NASCAR team with Denny Hamlin, and stock car racing legend Bubba Wallace has joined the squad.

About a year after retiring from the Bulls, Jordan became part owner and president of basketball operations of the Washington Wizards.

After returning to play two seasons for Washington, the Wilmington, N.C. native joined the front office of the Hornets in 2006 (then-known as the Bobcats) as a minority owner.

Unfortunately, the Hornets have failed to taste success under Jordan’s stewardship. Last summer, they lost their best player, Kemba Wallace, in free agency.

In the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic, NASCAR was one of the first North American sports to resume play.
