Statement on Passing of JD Gibbs

January 12, 2019

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of JD Gibbs. JD was a tremendous leader who led with inspiration, integrity and compassion. Whenever I would see him at the track, JD was a friendly face and always greeted me with a smile and a handshake. His passion for motorsports and for the betterment of NASCAR was always evident throughout our collaboration and efforts as fellow team owners. Our industry has lost a wonderful leader and friend and our thoughts go out to Joe, Pat, Coy, Melissa and their children along with everyone at Joe Gibbs Racing.”
