It’s been quite the week for Joe Gibbs.
The longtime NASCAR team owner of Joe Gibbs Racing saw three of his drivers feted at Thursday’s NASCAR Awards in Nashville, Tennessee – one of which was crowned a two-time NASCAR Cup Series champion in Kyle Busch – along with taking home the prestigious Bill France Award of Excellence for his own contributions to the sport.
Gibbs was recognized Friday for his contributions of excellence to another sport as well, being named to the National Football League’s NFL 100 All-Time team. One of just 10 coaches to be named to the group, the former Washington Redskins play-caller claimed a 154-94 career record as the franchise’s winningest coach over his 16 seasons. Gibbs led the Redskins to all three of the team’s Super Bowl victories and was inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1996.
