Gibbs On Super Bowls, Racing Titles

It took Joe Gibbs just two seasons to win a Super Bowl title as head coach of the Washington Redskins.

So when Gibbs took over a NASCAR team in 1992, many thought it wouldn’t be long until his winning ways rubbed off in racing.

They were right.

Just nine seasons later, Gibbs hoisted a different kind of trophy — the Winston Cup championship — after his driver, Bobby Labonte, claimed the 2000 title.

Gibbs earlier this week stopped by Redskins Park and talked with Larry Michael, the Voice of the Redskins, for a segment on “Redskins Nation,” and compared winning a Super Bowl to winning a NASCAR championship.

“I think that it’s the exact same feeling that you get when winning the Super Bowl. It’s the same thing,” Gibbs said. “It’s the best and the biggest thing that could happen to you in pro sports. I can remember that time here with the Redskins, and when I came over to motor sports, it took us nine years to win our first one in 2000. I can remember how thrilling that was.”

Gibbs said the Super Bowl experiences — he won three of them in his time with the Redskins — are ones he’ll never forget.

“The Super Bowls — you can’t get a greater experience than that in life,” Gibbs recalled. “My family and Pat and all of us, going through it with the fans here, the front office, everybody here, everybody was running around. It was an absolute thrill.”

Hopefully the “running around” and absolute thrills will be something seen around here again in the not-so-distant future.

    Joe Gibbs in my book is an outstanding football coach. He is a great leader of any organization that he is a part of wether it is football,NASCAR or anything else he does. I am glad that he is involved with the young football players of the Washington Redskins with his mentoring program as they need his guidance and knowledge.
