Gibbs, the former NFL coach who is the owner of Joe Gibbs Racing, provided an update on Monday regarding the team’s sponsorship and contract conversations.
“We’re really confident that we’re going to have that (No. 18) car squared away, sponsorship-wise, and we’re trying to work on our deal right now with Kyle,” Gibbs said. “So I think we feel good about it.”
Gibbs also indicated that the plan for JGR is to keep his grandson, 19-year-old Ty Gibbs, in the lower-level Xfinity Series for another season.
“We want to be real careful, take our time, and so really our goal was to keep him in Xfinity for two years, and so this is his first year really,” Gibbs said. “I think he’s had 23 or 24 Xfinity races, so the game plan is two years for sure in Xfinity. Make sure we don’t rush him.”
