TY GIBBS looking to put on a strong showing in XFINITY with eyes on full-time cup ride
Ty Gibbs turned 20 earlier this month. He already has nine career Xfinity wins and 13 Cup starts,
and has had his fair share of controversies and probably heard more than his fair share.
So while some might say a 20-year-old is too young to start a full-time cup career,
it's hard to say that Gibbs doesn't have enough knack to know what's in store.
"It's definitely getting old very quickly," Gibbs told Fox Sports last week before the race in Las Vegas.
"A lot of experiences. ... It's been fun. If it wasn't fun, I wouldn't be here.
There's going to be a lot of people who aren't there for me, and that's part of the path I took.
I know Was that going to happen before I did this gig. I just focus on my business and do my best."
Joe Gibbs Racing has not officially announced that Joe Gibbs' grandson will replace Kyle Bush in the open seat of JGR next year.
Joe Gibbs said last week that Bush's replacement would be announced after the season, but there's no doubt who will go on that open ride.
They shouldn't be either. At least not this time. Few would have guessed that Gibbs would have won four of the 18 Xfinity races last year.
He added five more this year and finished second in the standings as he battled for the Xfinity title.
"I can't imagine where he is in life at such a young age and coming into the limelight
you have to figure that out quickly," said former Cup driver AJ Allmender, who battled Gibbs for Xfinity. title.
