Ten items were created for the line, including a custom bomber jacket, basketball shorts, tearaway pants and a hoodie.

23XI driver Bubba Wallace said, "For years, racing culture has had a presence in streetwear culture. Growing up, I remember how cool it was to rock a racing jacket with all the different patches and designs, so I was more than happy to model this collection. My favorite piece is the bomber jacket—I love how authentic it looks and it has a unique McDonald's feature that I know fry enthusiasts, like me, will be particularly excited about."
