Statement from J.D. Gibbs Regarding Joe Gibbs' Return to Joe Gibbs Racing

HUNTERSVILLE, N.C. (Jan. 8, 2008) -- The following is a statement from J.D. Gibbs, president of Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR) since October 1997, about the return of his father, Joe Gibbs, to JGR after spending the past four years as head coach of the NFL's Washington Redskins.

"Obviously, it'll be great to have him back here on a regular basis. It's a biased opinion because he's my dad, but there's so much that he brings to the table. He has such a gift for leading a team. He's been coaching for 40 years and a leader of this race team since we formed it in 1992. Having him back will be a huge encouragement to our 430 families and a benefit to all of our corporate partners. I know my dad loves the Redskins and thinks the world of Dan Snyder (Redskins Owner). As a huge Redskins fan myself, I'm thrilled he will remain in partnership with Dan as a consultant, helping the Redskins wherever he can in the years to come.

"As far as my role with the team goes -- nothing changes, just like nothing really changed when he went back to the Redskins in 2004. I guess it's a good thing I never moved into his office. We're all working really hard to win races and championships, just like we always have."
