GM Racing's Reaction to Joe Gibbs returning to the Washington Redskins

Note: Joe Gibbs, former head coach of the NFL's Washington Redskins and the owner of Joe Gibbs Racing (JGR), today announced his return as head coach of the Washington Redskins. He retired as head coach of the Redskins after leading them to three Super Bowl victories during his 12 seasons with the team from 1981 - 1992. As a successful NASCAR team owner, Gibbs has captured two championships in the last four years - Bobby Labonte in '00 and Tony Stewart in '02.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Jan. 7, 2004) - "Joe Gibbs was with the Washington Redskins when we first began to build a team with him in the early 1990's," said Doug Duchardt, Director of GM Racing. "Since forming Joe Gibbs Racing in 1991, Gibbs has executed his racing organization with the same special leadership skills that brought him success in the NFL. In the past four seasons, Joe Gibbs Racing has given NASCAR championships to both Pontiac and Chevrolet. GM Racing and Joe Gibbs Racing have enjoyed an excellent relationship. With J.D. Gibbs maintaining his role as team president, we have every confidence that JGR will continue to be a great partner. We wish Joe all the best in his return venture with the Washington Redskins."
