Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) is an American professional stock car racing team owned and operated by former Washington Redskins coach Joe Gibbs, which 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 Cup Series 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 first three championships, two in Pontiac Grand Prixs 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 Monster Energy Cup Series, the team currently fields four full-time entries: the No. 11 Toyota Camry for Denny Hamlin, the No. 18 Camry for Kyle Busch, the No. 19 Camry for Martin Truex Jr., and the No. 20 Camry for Erik Jones. In the Xfinity Series, the team currently fields three full-time entries: the No. 18 Camry for part-time drivers Daniel Suárez, Kyle Benjamin, Kyle Busch, Denny Hamlin, Erik Jones, and Ryan Preece; the No. 19 Camry for Brandon Jones, and the No. 20 Camry for Christopher Bell.
The team also has a strong development program for up and coming drivers, grooming future Sprint Cup Winners Joey Logano and Aric Almirola and winning one championship in the East Division of the NASCAR Camping World Series (now K&N Pro Series) with Logano. The organization teamed up with former NFL player Reggie White in 2004 to create a diversity program, fielding drivers such as Almirola, Marc Davis, and Darrell Wallace Jr., and forming the basis for NASCAR’s own Drive for Diversity program. Currently Riley Herbst is under a development contract driving in the Truck Series for Kyle Busch Motorsports and the ARCA racing series for JGR.
The team further has a technical alliance with Leavine Family Racing starting in 2019.
