It was clear from the outset of today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Good Sam’s RV Insurance 500 that all three Joe Gibbs Racing entries brought a car capable of winning at Pocono Raceway. Indeed, all three teammates would share the lead through most of the day, but separate late-race incidents would keep each of them from their desired finish. Kyle Busch would lead JGR with a second-place finish, while Denny Hamlin and Joey Logano were forced to settle for 15th and 26th respectively.
Kyle Busch led Joe Gibbs Racing with a 10th-place finish in today’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Brickyard 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Meanwhile teammates Joey Logano and Denny Hamlin would finish 25th and 27th respectively as different fuel strategies resulted in a shuffled field.
Drew Herring brought his No.18 SportClips Toyota home in 7th place in an impressive run at Nashville. Brian Scott finished 17th in the No.11 Shore Lodge Toyota.
Kyle Busch made history Saturday in Loudon, NH when he crossed the finish line first to capture his 100th NASCAR win and 49th Nationwide Series victory. This tied him with Mark Martin as All-Time wins leaders.
Joe Gibbs Racing proved to have one of the strongest teams on the track tonight for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.
Each of the three JGR drivers showed the ability to make a run to the front of the pack at any point it desired as they raced in two-car pods for each lap of the 160-lap race. There was no secret that teammates Joey Logano and Kyle Busch would partner for tonight’s race especially following last night’s Nationwide Series performance that resulted in a Logano victory. Meanwhile, Denny Hamlin entered the weekend with the strategy to partner with the No. 39 car of Ryan Newman from Stewart-Haas Racing after the pair showed success together in February’s Daytona 500.
