Joe Gibbs Racing could have a fourth team in place as early as next year if the right driver and a sponsor could be found, but don't count on it, according to SceneDaily.com.
“We’re in no hurry," J D Gibbs said at Infineon. "If we have to wait a year, that’s fine. You have got to have the right driver, the right core group and the right sponsor. But if that happened, we could do it pretty quick. I wouldn’t cross it off for next year but at the same time we’re not going to force it.”
Our View: Fantasy owners can afford to be patient. This studied approach is likely to result in a strong team whenever they decide to expand. In this economy, it's hard to imagine a new Gibbs team even as early as 2010.
