Denny Hamlin confirmed Friday that Mike Wheeler will be Bubba Wallace‘s crew chief next season for 23XI Racing, the team owned by Hamlin and Michael Jordan.
Wheeler served as Hamlin’s crew chief for six races in 2014 and then from 2016-18. They won five races together but separated after a winless season in 2018. Wheeler moved to Leavine Family Racing in 2019 to be Matt DiBenedetto‘s crew chief and then became the competition director for the team for this season.
