Joe Gibbs Racing

     Home | Motorsports | Joe Gibbs Racing

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) is a group of NASCAR racing teams owned and operated by former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, who first started racing on the NASCAR circuit in 1991, and J. D. Gibbs, his son. Headquartered in Huntersville, North Carolina, near Charlotte, the team amassed three Sprint Cup championships since the year 2000 and participated in other lower-tier NASCAR series for driver development, winning one championship in the East Division of the NASCAR Camping World. For the team's first sixteen seasons, JGR ran cars from General Motors. During that period the team won their three championships, two in Pontiac Grand Prixes and one in a Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Despite this, JGR felt as if they weren't as important as some of the other GM teams such as Hendrick Motorsports and Richard Childress Racing. Therefore, during the 2007 season Joe Gibbs Racing announced that they would be ending their arrangement with GM at the end of the year and begin running Toyotas the following season. Since then, JGR has become the strongest and winningest Toyota team. The team currently fields the #11 FedEx Toyota Camry for Denny Hamlin, the #18 M&M's/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry for Kyle Busch, and the #20 The Home Depot Toyota Camry for Joey Logano in the Sprint Cup Series. They also field the #11 Shore Lodge Toyota Camry for Brian Scott, the #18 Z-Line Designs Toyota Camry for Busch and Brad Coleman, and the #20 GameStop/Sport Clips Toyota Camry for Logano and Hamlin. The team also fields the #18 Joe Gibbs Driven Racing Oil Toyota Camry for development driver Matt DiBenedetto in the K&N Pro Series East.
