While Ty Gibbs might only be starting in the Cup Series, he has a very high objective to reach during his career.
Gibbs had a great 2022 season in the Xfinity Series as he won seven races and claimed the 2022 Xfinity championship. Additionally, he also made his Cup debut the same year and filled in for Kurt Busch for 23XI Racing. He raced in a number of races since making his debut at Pocono.
However, he missed the last race of the season due to the death of his father.
“He will win a lot of races” – Richard Childress believes momentum is set for Kyle Busch to get more wins
Now he is running full-time with Joe Gibbs Racing for the No. 54 car, replacing Kyle Busch. While he might have just started his full-time Cup career, Ty is already thinking of being included in the NASCAR Hall of Fame.
“I want to be a multi-time champion. I want to be in the Hall of Fame. I want to be an owner. I want to be driving a bunch of different cars. I just want to do it all. I have a lot of stuff that I want to do. I’m all in,” Gibbs said.
“For sure I think for me getting a couple of wins and going for a championship is the minimum for me. Like I said, I try to work as hard as I can, and if there is stuff I haven’t been doing good at, I want to fix all of that and be the best possible driver that I can. I want to make a lot of progress. I don’t ever really think of goals. I just take it every lap by lap and have a hell of a time.”
Just 20, Gibbs has a lot of years to reach his goals. But the first step would be to show that he belongs at the Cup Series level this season.
He finished 25th in Daytona and improved in the second race with a 16th-place finish at Auto Club Speedway.
