"The Most Fun Race I've Ever Been In!" - Ty Gibbs wins @ The Glen


The Xfinity race at Watkins Glen Speedway on Saturday was dominated by race winner Ty Gibbs. In only his tenth career NASCAR Xfinity start,  the young grandson of NASCAR Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs led 43 laps in the SKREWBALL PEANUT BUTTER WHISKEY 200 en route to his third series victory. 

"Thank you to the man above. That was probably the most fun race I've ever been in. AJ (Allmendinger) and the 7 (Justin Allgaier) and the 22 (Austin Cindric), those guys are very experienced veterans in this racing series. To be able to race and beat them it just means a lot and I learned a lot from them too!"

When asked about his dominating performance by NBC's Dillon Welch, Gibbs expressed additional gratitude. 

"My Toyota Racing Super wassuper fast today and this is just a dream come true!" After watching the replay of the finish, he elaborated to the reporter, offering his perspective on the finish. "I mean AJ was all the way out there. I just feel like being in these situations kind of helps you and just getting more experience. Those guys are so relaxed in this situation so kind of just learning from them and this is just wonderful i can't believe it.  Those two, the twenty-two and you know AJ, the baddest dudes on the road course ever! It's a great race i'm just at a loss of words right now. I'm tired too," he said with a smile.

Ty will compete next week at Indianapolis representing newly announced sponsor Sport Clips. Gibbs stated there will be more races with the men's salon in the 2021 season, but no other dates were finalized at this time.
