CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Joe Gibbs is a retired Hall of Fame NFL coach with three Super Bowl titles who changed course in his early 50s to wade into NASCAR and see if he couldnt build a second career and a family business.
Gibbs not only developed a championship-winning organization that gave both of his sons leadership roles, but he also turned Joe Gibbs Racing into one of NASCARs elite teams.
Gibbs is taking three drivers to Sundays championship-deciding finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway, where the Toyota trio of Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. will race Ford driver Kevin Harvick for the title. The highest-finishing driver wins the Cup.
