NASCAR owner Joe Gibbs is making a big move toward the Cup Series playoffs.
A former NFL head coach has changed NASCAR ownership and is changing the pits of his team.
“Joe Gibbs Racing is swapping over-the-wall pits for Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin starting in Texas,” reports Bob Pokras.
NASCAR fans were relieved by the news.
“It makes sense since Hamlin is fighting for the championship, but it’s going to be painful for Kyle,” one fan wrote.
“Just like JGR planned. Junk Busch out of the game and give the team to JGR loyalists,” one fan added.
“The No. 18 crew is currently tied for first place in the Cup Series according to @PitStopStats, with an average of 10.33 seconds. .
“His optics aren’t great, but it makes sense for JGR,” said another fan.
The NASCAR Cup Series continues this weekend from Texas Motor Speedway.
