Team 23 Racing Supported By Michael Jordan Set To Compete In AMA Chevrolet Superbike Championship

Team 23 Racing representatives today confirmed companies affiliated with NBA legend Michael Jordan will sponsor Montez Stewart in this yearís AMA Repsol Superstock and Pro Honda Oils Supersport classes.

The effort is owned by Edward Scott LLC with primary sponsorship from Brand Jordan, a subsidiary of Nike managed in coordination with the five-time NBA MVP Jordan. The 31-year-old Stewart will ride the #123 Yamaha R1 in Repsol Superstock and the #123 Yamaha R6 in Pro Honda Oils Supersport.

ďItís a blessing to have Brand Jordan and the rest of my sponsors behind me,Ē team pilot Stewart said. ďI really donít think I would have the opportunity to race in the AMA otherwise.Ē

Team officials said Jordanís willingness to support his friend Stewart and his interest in motorcycle racing opened the door to the basketball iconís corporate partners. Additionally, team officials said Brand Jordan saw the sponsorship as an opportunity to support Jordan and his new recreational endeavors, particularly in developing products for official Team 23 Racing use.

ďMy goals of course include winning, but itís tough racing against some of the fastest guys in the world,Ē Stewart said.
