Ty Gibbs debuts new NASCAR chart at Darlington Raceway


Ty Gibbs will be launching a new chart at Darlington Raceway.

#54 will feature a bright new chart during the Xfinity Series’ return to Darlington Raceway. Ty Gibbs will show Shriners Children’s Hospital on his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota GR Supra.

Joe Gibbs Racing revealed the new scheme on August 18, prior to the trip to Watkins Glen International. Building 54 will have a red plinth with yellow door numbers and Shriners Hospital logos for children in yellow. There will also be special graphics commemorating 100 years of Shriners’ care for children.

Gibbs participated in a special event on August 18 to showcase this new chart. He drove to Shriners Hospital for Children in Greenville and unveiled the red number 54. Gibbs spent time with patients and staff before pulling the hood off his Toyota GR Supra.

Gibbs’ limited starts at Darlington Raceway

GTTy Gibbs will start his third race at Darlington Raceway.

When Gibbs heads to Darlington Raceway to showcase his new chart, it will be only the third time in his Xfinity Series career. He only has two games on the track – one in 2021 and one earlier in 2022.

Gibbs didn’t have much success on The Lady in Black, one of NASCAR’s toughest tracks. He placed only 18th during his debut, then finished 16th in 2022 after starting the race from pole in the bounced “shark” chart highlighting Hall of Famer Bobby Labonte.

Gibbs was enjoying speed during the 2022 race. He finished second behind JR Motorsports driver Noah Gragson in Stages 1 and 2 as he added more points to his season total.

However, Gibbs was buried in the middle of the pack during a final stage that included multiple crash alerts on the track and drivers using a variety of pit strategies, including one last lap crash that brought together multiple cars.

Gibbs will first show a different bright outline

It’s still weeks away from the Shriners Hospital for Children’s opening. It won’t happen until September 3. Gibbs will first head to Watkins Glen International and Daytona International Speedway for two pivotal races.

The New York road race will have a different bright scheme. Gibbs will face Watkins Glenn as he drives his #54 Cadet Toyota GR Supra in yellow and black and is seeking his second win in a row. He also took over the Michigan race before the weekend.

The last time Gibbs headed to Watkins Glen in an Xfinity Series race, he put in a solid performance. He started 15th overall in what was just his fourth race on the road in the series, but worked his way up to the front of the group.

Gibbs drove 43 of 82 laps during the road track race, and earned points in the second stage. He eventually went on to hold off AJ Allmendinger after taking the lead for the last time with three laps left in the race. Now he will return to the track of the road and try to defend his victory.
