J.D. Gibbs, the son of JGR owner Joe Gibbs, serves as president of Joe Gibbs Racing, a position he was named to in October 1997.
During Gibbs’ tenure as president, JGR has won two NEXTEL Cup Series championships with Bobby Labonte in 2000 and Tony Stewart in 2002.
Also during Gibbs’ time as president, the team has expanded from a one-car operation, with Bobby Labonte and the No. 18 Interstate Batteries Chevrolet, to a three-car team that also fields the No. 20 Home Depot Chevrolet for Tony Stewart and the No. 11 FedEx Chevrolet for Jason Leffler. The team also fields Busch Series entries for J.J. Yeley and Denny Hamlin.
In addition to the NEXTEL Cup and Busch Series efforts, Gibbs has overseen a successful JGR diversity program, which was formed in 2003 with the late Reggie White, an NFL defensive standout from 1985-2000.

Before that, he competed in the Busch North Series as well as in late-model stock car at several tracks in North Carolina.

Before working in racing, Gibbs played football at The College of William and Mary. He wore No. 11, the number of the FedEx Chevrolet driven by Leffler, from 1987-90 as a defensive back and quarterback.During Gibbs’ time at W&M, the team made the NCAA Division I-AA playoffs twice, and posted a school-record 10-win season during his senior year.
