Joe Gibbs Responds After Ty Gibbs, Brandon Jones Rick

President Joe Gibbs Racing studied around the Xfinity Series race at Martinsville Speedway where Ty Gibbs smashed Brandon Jones. He said there would be consequences.

“I think, first of all, none of us want what happened last night,” Gibbs told Claire B. Lang of SiriusXM. “So when things like that happen, there will be consequences. T knows it; we all do. He will have to work his way through it all.”

The accident happened on the last lap at Martinsville Speedway. Jones and Ty, two JGR teammates, swapped the lead during multiple reboots with bump and run. However, Ty took the last step when he hit Jones hard enough to send Number 19 into the wall. He went on to win while Jones finished 23rd.

Gibbs continued, saying that every week is a “learning experience” for the driver of the #54 Toyota GR Supra. He said no one in the building wanted a situation like what happened at the historic track and that he knew his grandson “is going to have to go through some things.” Although he and Coy Gibbs will be joining him on this journey.

Coy Gibbs also spoke about the situation at Martinsville Speedway

With Christopher Bell winning the Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, there were some media obligations that Joe Gibbs Racing executives had to fulfill. Lang was able to speak to Gibbs at Victory Lane while Ty’s father faced some questions in the media center.

Coy Gibbs, Vice Chairman and COO of JGR, was the team representative during Bell’s post-race press conference. He encountered an initial question about Ty from NBC Sports reporter Dustin Long, and gave a partial answer before talking about Bale’s win.

“Yes, yesterday was disappointing,” Coy said. “It’s not what we wanted for our race team. We haven’t met as a group yet because we’ve been at the racetrack and everywhere. We’re going to meet this and deal with it internally and deal with it.”

The questions are not over after the first answer. Coe faced multiple follow-up questions about Ty’s actions at Martinsville Speedway.

“Yeah, I mean, I think when you’re young, you make mistakes,” Coy added. “We hope you learn from them. I think that is the message we are going to send him.

“Obviously, with his teammates, this is a completely different ball game. There are two things that we need to get over. Like I said, we haven’t met as a group yet. Our leadership group will meet and we will deal with the situation.”

Questions remain about Ty .’s future

There is only one race left in the 2022 Xfinity Series season. Ty will head to Phoenix Raceway to battle three JR Motorsports drivers for the championship trophy. What happens next will definitely create some conversations.

There are still some questions about Tai’s future. The hidden worst is that he will most likely be the driver to replace Kyle Busch in the #18 Toyota Camry TRD for the 2023 season.

JGR did not confirm the move after originally stating that the plan was to keep Ty at Xfinity for a full-time second season; The team will wait until after the end of the season to provide any updates on specific drivers and their contracts. Although Cui was not shy about this assumption when he encountered a follow-up about Tae’s maturity and cup readiness.

“I think that’s part of the process and why you’re going your way, so you can usually make these mistakes at a lower level,” Coy said. “So, you know, look, it’s my baby. I appreciate his aggression. But sometimes you have to step back a little. This is where we need to undo some.

“I just spoke to him and explained to him that this affects not only him, it affects our entire company, all our sponsors, all the people we deal with, Toyota, it obviously affects Brandon. These are things you probably don’t think about in this split second, but Hopefully we can reach out to him and educate him on these things.”
