“McDonald’s has really stepped up over the years and played a large part in my career,”Wallace.

“Getting McDonald’s back to Victory Lane for the first time since 1994 and having them on our Camry for my first win in the Cup Series this year was really special.

In addition, McDoanld’s will serve as a sponsor on the No. 45 car. Kurt Busch will pilot the second entry out of the 23XI Racing shop with McDonald’s sponsoring select races.

“Racing with Monster Energy over the last decade together has been an incredible ride,” said Kurt Busch.
