An Emotional Win for Joe Gibbs Racing as Denny Hamlin wins his second Daytona 500!!

Denny Hamlin wins his second Daytona 500, but I feel this on will be the most special to him!!!Virginia’s own Denny Hamlin won his second Daytona 500 with Coach Joe Gibbs, yes the amazing Coach for Redskins.  However, this one is truly special, because just  few weeks ago Joe Gibbs lost his son  J.D. Gibbs to a neurological disease he has been battling for over 4 years, so this win could not have come at a better time for Joe Gibbs Racing.  J.D. Gibbs was an essential part of JGR and will be terribly missed!!  After the race when they interviewed Coach Gibbs as he was headed to victory lane, he said J.D. had the best seat in the house for the Daytona 500,he was watching over all of us, knowing his son was in heaven, and this win speaks volumes of his legacy in our organization!!! As Denny Hamlin emerges from the car after he crossed the finish line in Daytona, he pointed to the sticker on the car and said I did it for JD….What a great day for JGR finishing 1, 2, 3 in Daytona!!!
