Joe Gibbs Racing: Picking Up Where They Left Off

1993: Bill Clinton had just moved into the White House, email was technology's shiny new toy, and Jeff Gordon was a Winston Cup rookie. That same year, Dale Jarrett won the Daytona 500, driving for Joe Gibbs Racing (if you have a few minutes, here are the final laps on youtube). JGR hadn't had a Dayton 500 winning car since: not Bobby Labonte, not Tony Stewart, not Kyle Busch. Denny Hamlin changed that Sunday.
