Joe Gibbs Racing: sejarah

Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) is an American professional stock car racing team 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, roughly 10 miles (16 km) northwest of Charlotte Motor Speedway, the team has amassed four Sprint Cup championships since the year 2000. 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, Joe Gibbs Racing announced during the 2007 season that they would be ending their arrangement with GM at the end of the year and begin running Toyotas the following season. This partnership would eventually bring Toyota their first Sprint Cup when Kyle Busch won the championship in 2015. In the Sprint Cup Series, the team currently fields the No. 11 FedEx/Sport Clips Toyota Camry full-time for Denny Hamlin, the No. 18 M&M's/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry full-time for Kyle Busch, the No. 19 ARRIS Toyota Camry full-time for Carl Edwards, and the No. 20 Dollar General/DeWalt Toyota Camry full-time for Matt Kenseth. In the Xfinity Series, the team currently fields the No. 18 NOS Energy Drink Toyota Camry full-time for part-time drivers Bobby Labonte, Kyle Busch, Matt Tifft, Denny Hamlin, the No. 19 ARRIS/Juniper Networks/Interstate Batteries Toyota Camry full-time for Daniel Suárez, and the No. 20 Reser's Fine Foods/Hisense/Interstate Batteries/Gamestop Toyota Camry full-time for Erik Jones.
