"I think Denny and Kyle really like having him, hearing what he has to say," J.D. Gibbs said. "On the race track, he just has a gift. So I think it's really been a blessing for Joe Gibbs Racing to have him join our team. We look forward to a great future."
"I think we have been strong in the past, but I think what we've learned over all these years is you have to be consistent," J.D. Gibbs said. "You can't start off too strong. To me, it's just that consistency. I think our guys really get that at the shop."
