Monday Trivia

Joe Gibbs Racing has a history of successful beginnings. Yesterday, his rookie Denny Hamlin drove the #11 FedEx Express car to the checkered flag in the Bud Shootout. That was the first Cup win for Hamlin, the first win for the FedEx team and the first time a rookie started and won Shootout.

Back in '93, Gibbs's first year of ownership in Cup competition, his car won the Daytona 500. Who was driving? And who was the sponsor?

Robert C got the driver and sponsor right, but some of Mike's info is incorrect.

Dale Jarrett did win the 1993 Daytona 500, driving for Gibbs in the Interstate Batteries car, however, it was Gibbs and Jarrett's second year together, not their first. They went winless in 1992.

not sure where you were in 92, but it wasn't watching racing. 93 was Gibbs and Jarrets first year together

Dale Jarrett drove for JGR 1992-1994. Look it up for yourself on DaleJarret.com.
