Ty Gibbs the grandson of Joe Gibbs, founder of Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), and former NFL Coach picked up the victory in the NASCAR Xfinity Super Start Batteries 188 at Daytona Presented by O’Reilly. The 18-year-old won in his first start in the Xfinity Series holding off reigning champion Austin Cindric in double overtime on the 14 turn road course at Daytona International Speedway.

Gibbs becomes the third youngest driver in series history, behind just Joey Logano and Chase Elliott to win a race.

“I just cannot thank everybody right now, really this is like a dream come true for me, it’s just awesome,” said an emotional Gibbs, “I really didn’t think I had it there at the end, I fought back and we won.”
