A year after racing to his first career NASCAR Cup victory at The Glen, Elliott won a second time in the No. 9 for Hendrick Motorsports, besting Martin Truex Jr. just as he did a year ago. The Glen hadn’t had a repeat winner in nearly a decade, since Marcos Ambrose in 2011-12.

Gibbs credits his NASCAR success to finding ‘gifted people’

Gibbs had won three Super Bowls as coach of the Washington Redskins, but he was an outsider starting from scratch when it came to stock car racing. And when his team failed to win a race in its first season, Gibbs started to doubt his decision. But Gibbs, just as he always seems to do, found a way to win — and he hasn’t stopped winning.
