Clay Today will test your knowledge weekly and provide interesting facts on various topics. This week, sports stars who own cars in NASCAR. Stock car racing is still celebrating Tyler Reddick’s victory at the Talladega Superspeedway because co-owner Michael Jordan was on the pit box to join the celebration. The sport also has replayed his joyous words in Victory Lane when he yelled he was “all in” in NASCAR. But when it comes to NASCAR, he’s hardly the first professional athlete to be involved in racing. Nobody has been more loyal than five-time NBA All-Star Brad Daugherty. He wore No. 43 with the Cleveland Cavaliers because Richard Petty was his favorite athlete as a child. He won a race as a car owner with driver Robert Pressley in the Xfinity Series in 1989 and twice in the Cup Series as a partner with Tad and Jodi Geschickter in 2014 and 2023. Other pros who’ve ventured into the go-fast-and-turn-left sport include Dan Marino, Terry Bradshaw, Troy Aikman, Brett Favre, Joe Washington, Super Bowl Champion coach Joe Gibbs, Roger Staubach, Julius Erving and Jackie Joyner-Kersee.
