Ty Gibbs didn’t anticipate making a start in the NASCAR Cup Series this year, but as is common, things sometimes change.

Kurt Busch’s 23XI Racing team asked Gibbs to race its No. 45 Toyota after NASCAR declared early Sunday that Busch was not fully qualified to participate at Pocono Raceway.

The 19-year-old grandson of Joe Gibbs, who is a member of the Hall of Fame, placed just second in the Xfinity Series race at Pocono on Saturday.

Gibbs has won 3 poles, 4 races, and 18 races during his first complete season of series competition, solidifying him as a title candidate. He has not, though, completed a lap in the brand-new Next Gen Cup Series vehicle.

Since Gibbs had to begin the race in the back of the pack, he decided to take it easy at first while he tried to acquire a feel for the car. He managed green-flag pit stops, stayed on the lead lap the entire race, and almost finished in the top-15 before settling in at position 16.

“First of all, I want to say thank you to God for giving me this opportunity. Thank you to Michael Jordan and Denny Hamlin – everybody at 23XI,” Gibbs said. “The most important thing right now is about Kurt’s health and hopefully he can get back in this seat.

“He drives way better than me so he deserves this. He’s been awesome. He’s helped me out so much. I want to say thank you to him.”

Busch, 43, was hurt severely in the last round of Cup qualifying on Saturday and was still experiencing concussion-related symptoms on Sunday.

In a statement released early on Sunday, Busch expressed his hope to be able to take part in the race on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Road Course the following weekend.
