“Joe Gibbs Racing confirms with great sadness that co-owner Coy Gibbs went to be with the Lord in his sleep last night. “The family wants privacy at this time and thanks everyone for their thoughts and prayers,” the team said on Twitter Sunday afternoon.
J.D. Gibbs, Joe Gibbs’s other son, died in 2019. NASCAR says that he died at the age of 49 after a long battle with a disease that caused nerve cells to break down.
