24 drivers are eligible for the 2021 edition of the BuschClash at Daytona next week, with many of those drivers already signing deals in established rides that can participate.

Ty Dillon was among the few drivers that are eligible for the Clash, but did not have a ride for Daytona Speedweeks until just a few weeks ago with Gaunt Brothers.

Things have now changed, as Dillon will join 23XI Racing for a one-off deal to participate in the 2021 Busch Clash. With this deal, the newly announced Toyota driver will be the first driver on-track in the much-anticipated debut of the Michael Jordan-owned team.

The news was first confirmed by The Athletic.

The news has been rumored for a number of weeks as Wallace is not eligible for the 2021 edition of the season opening exhibition race. Dillon, after winning a stage in 2020, is eligible.

The 2021 Busch Clash will be the first race for 23XI Racing, and for fans to see the return of the No. 23 car on the track.

The Busch Clash will go green on Tuesday, February 9 at 7:00PM EST on FOX Sports 1 and the FOX Sports App.
