Coach Joe Gibbs is a double threat. The former football coach who led the Washington Redskins to three Super Bowl titles is now finding immense success leading champions on the NASCAR racetrack.
When asked his secret to success, Gibbs says it all about surrounding yourself with good people. "In football, if I picked the right football players, they made me look good,” Gibbs tells Soledad O'Brien on "Starting Point" this morning. “It's the same thing over here in racing.”
As a team owner, Gibbs is all-consumed with racing now and the competition ahead. “We’re in a battle,” Gibbs says. “We’re coming down here with three races left, trying to get into the playoffs.”
Gibbs racing team is now gearing up for the next track of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, the IRWIN Tools Night Race, where four lucky fans will be awarded the “Best Seats in the House.”
