    Joe Graf Jr.’s decision to a five-race deal with Joe Gibbs Racing for the NASCAR Xfinity Series didn’t go well among fans.

    The 24-year-old driver will run the full NASCAR Xfinity Series schedule in 2023, the majority of the events for RSS Racing.

    However, his deal with JGR means that he will drive their No. 19 Toyota for five races, which includes races at Auto Club and Las Vegas, Richmond, New Hampshire and Kansas.

    “Running five races with JGR is a fantastic opportunity for myself and for my marketing partners. I think I can learn a lot from JGR and showcase the skills I’ve been growing in the series in the past three years. 2023 is shaping up to be a great year and I’m pumped to get started with the No. 19 group,” the driver said.

    Fox Sports journalist Bob Pockrass announced the move on his Twitter post, which invited a dig from home-racing brand Couch Racer.

    Many people seemed to agree with Couch Racer’s opinion on the matter and it was not only the fans who supported it but also the likes of Bubba Wallace’s spotter Freddie Kraft and GMS Racing’s Rajah Caruth, who liked the post.

    Fans agreed and lamented that money is given more priority than talent in NASCAR.

    Nonetheless, the spotlight will be on Graf Jr. to make the best of his deal with JGR.
