Wild Watkins Glen

The rain in Watkins Glen, NY might have delayed the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race from Sunday afternoon to Monday morning, but it didn’t do anything to dampen the efforts of Joe Gibbs Racing.

JGR left the road course of Watkins Glen International with two top-five finishes as Kyle Busch and Joey Logano earned third and fifth-place respectively. While it appeared that teammate Denny Hamlin would have the opportunity to join them at the top of the field, an accident left the No. 11 team with a disappointing 36th-place finish.

Watkins Glen

Joey Logano led the Joe Gibbs Racing Nationwide Series cars with a 3rd place finish at Watkins Glen. Kyle Busch led many laps on Saturday, but an early drive through the grass and a late fuel issue left him with a 4th place finish. Brian Scott was in the top-10 for most of the race, but overheating issues forced an unscheduled stop. He eventually finished 14th.

Ryan Truex Joins JGR

Joe Gibbs Racing announces today that it has signed Ryan Truex to drive in six races this season in the organization’s NASCAR Nationwide Series program.

Truex will drive the No. 20 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing beginning in Atlanta on September 3. In addition Truex will be behind the wheel of the No. 20 in Richmond, Chicago, Dover, Kansas, and Phoenix. While sponsorship for a portion of the six-race schedule is expected to be announced soon, opportunities for partnership still exist.

“We’re thrilled to bring Ryan into our Nationwide Series program,” said J.D. Gibbs, president of Joe Gibbs Racing. “His family has a great history in our sport and he has really proven himself with the opportunities he has had thus far in his young career. When you look at what he’s already achieved in the K&N Series and with the opportunities he has already had in Nationwide, we’re looking forward  to him accomplishing great things for our team.”

Despite being raised around the sport and watching his older brother Martin Truex, Jr. ascend to the top level of NASCAR, Ryan Truex started his racing career a bit later than most.  Now 19 years old, he first stepped behind the wheel of a Bandolero car at the age of 13 in his hometown of Mayetta, NJ and quickly showcased the talent that has long been associated with his family which dates back to his father’s racing career in the Busch North Series.   He would move through the ranks of Legend Cars and Late Models over the next couple of years before receiving an opportunity to run in the NASCAR K&N Pro Series.

As he has done at every level of racing, Truex excelled in the K&N Pro Series East with an impressive rookie campaign in 2009 that included three wins, seven top-5s and eight top-10s.  He was awarded Rookie-of-the-Year honors and won the championship to give Michael Waltrip Racing (MWR) its first NASCAR championship. Truex became only the second driver in Series history to win both honors in the same year, with now JGR teammate Joey Logano having accomplished the feat two years prior.

Truex would win a second consecutive K&N Pro Series East championship in 2010 with two wins, eight top-5s and nine top-10 finishes.  During the same 2010 season, Truex would launch his NASCAR Nationwide Series career, achieving an outside pole at Michigan International Speedway and earning three top-15 finishes in his first seven NASCAR Nationwide Series starts for MWR. He has 10 starts in the Nationwide Series this season for MWR with one top-10 finish at Richmond.

“I’m honored to have the opportunity to compete with Joe Gibbs Racing in the Nationwide Series,” said Truex. “I appreciate the support from Joe, JD and the rest of the JGR organization.  I can’t wait to strap into the No. 20 Nationwide Series Toyota Camry at Atlanta Motor Speedway in September.

“I’d like to thank Michael Waltrip Racing for their support over the past few years, without them, I wouldn’t be in this position as a driver.  It goes without saying that my dad, my brother and many others have supported me throughout my career and I’d like to thank all of them as well.”
