Bubba Wallace’s star in NASCAR is ascending. The 27-year old driver will be wheeling the new No. 23 car for 23XI Racing, a team owned by Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin, during the 2021 NASCAR Cup Series season. On Saturday, Wallace dropped what his brand new DoorDash helmet will look like this upcoming season. Let’s just say, this thing is sharp.

The red, white and gray helmet features accent lines of chrome as well as subtle shots of food items within the design such as burgers, pizza and other items.
The helmet was designed by RStar Designs.
Wallace is coming off of the best season of his three-year NASCAR Cup Series career. In 2020, he scored one top-five, five top-10s and an average finish of 21.1 en route to a 22nd-place finish in the championship standings. All of those stats registered as new career-bests for the Alabama-native.
Now, on a team with seemingly endless sponsorship, resources and a technical alliance with TRD and Joe Gibbs Racing, it seems the sky could be the limit for Wallace and the No. 23 team.
