Joe Gibbs met with the media Sunday morning prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway and gave an update on his son, Joe Gibbs Racing president J.D. Gibbs. Last Wednesday the team announced that the 46-year-old has started treatment for symptoms impacting areas of brain function. The team said Gibbs has undergone a series of tests after experiencing a gradual onset of symptoms that includes speech and processing issues.
Sunday Gibbs said in a statement to the media, that J.D. made his announcement in the weekly team meeting. Sunday Gibbs took no questions.
“He got up and basically he said, ‘I know God has a plan and God puts us through things for a reason.’ I think J.D. gains his strength from the fact that he has a personal relationship with the Lord and I have to tell you that he’s my hero,” Gibbs said. MORE>>>
