Joe Gibbs Racing is the Los Angeles Angels of NASCAR this off-season. The team has picked up three drivers that can each win a championship. Joe Gibbs Racing already had two championship caliber drivers with Kyle Busch and Denny Hamlin leading the way for the team’s NASCAR Sprint Cup Series program.
After not having that successful of a season, well at least for Joe Gibbs Racing standards, the team signed two NASCAR Nationwide Series drivers to a full-time slate for the 2013 season with one of the drivers having the potential to be a fourth Joe Gibbs Racing driver in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series in 2014.
The team signed Brian Vickers, who will drive the No. 20 Dollar General Toyota while running a part-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Series schedule with Michael Waltrip Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. They also signed back-to-back NASCAR Nationwide Series runner-up, Elliott Sadler. Sadler will pilot the No. 11 One Main Financial Toyota Camry and hopes to return to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series if given the opportunity from a sponsor, likely to be One Main Financial if things go well this season.
